One of the biggest events in southern Europe is approaching, South Summit Madrid 2022, co-organized by IE University. This edition will be held at La Nave, in Madrid from June 8 to 10. This year, the South Summit Madrid celebrates its tenth anniversary as a space where entrepreneurs, investors, corporations and startups who want to generate real business opportunities and value connections between them meet.

Under the motto of ‘[de]coding complexity’, the main themes of the content program will be the great advances in technology, the speed of innovation and the great challenge of fighting climate change.

Taking into account that attendance and participation records were broken during South Summit 2021, expectations for this year are high and 22,000 attendees are expected to generate economic activity that reaches 20 million euros in Madrid.

As usual, at South Summit Madrid 2022 the 100 startups that compete as finalists of the Startup Competition will be present. Half of them are of Spanish origin, especially from Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia, while the other half come from 29 different countries such as the United Kingdom, the USA, Germany, Israel, Switzerland or Brazil, among others.

The event seeks to be a window where the projects that have been selected can present their pitch on stage, have personal meetings with recognized investors, in addition to having global reach and access to potential clients.

The themes of the ideas are very varied, where software and cybersecurity projects stand out, ranging from a robot capable of automating the harvesting process on farms to a system that detects forest fires from outer space.
