The Spanish startup investment ecosystem has joined in an unprecedented initiative that aims to unite in a large database, on the one hand, talent that has seen its position in the startup where it worked due to to the economic slowdown of COVID19, and on the other hand, to startups that are looking for profiles with experience in the sector, since they have a rebound in their activity at the moment.
Draper B1, Samaipata VC, Faraday VP, Dyrecto, Encomenda VC, JME VC, K Fund, Athos Capital, Inveready, Bankinter, Marina de Empresas, Sabadell VC, BStartup10, Lanzame Capital, Archipelago Next, Nekko Capital, are some of the agents who lead this group, which in just a few hours has already collected dozens of profiles and jobs to fill.
This database is public and is open to all startup employees affected by adjustments due to COVID19. It also includes a list of companies that need to incorporate experienced talent, accustomed to the startup culture, to reinforce their staff. “Excellent initiative that aims to help relocate startup talent,” stated Andrés Echecopar of AEA Capital Advisors.
With this tool and the dissemination of this form, the sector takes a step forward to accelerate the subsequent recovery. The initiative is inspired by similar listings promoted by venture capital firms in the United States or Southeast Asia.
“As an ecosystem we have a responsibility to support and maintain talent; to accelerate the adjustment of the sector to the new reality ”, point out from the Draper B1 fund, highlighting that human capital continues to be the most important resource and the union of all the great agents that make up investment networks is the best way to be more strong.
