"We know 2020 has been a difficult year, marked by an unprecedented global health crisis. In turn, this has meant new challenges for everyone across the world.
The huge economic crisis we now face has illuminated the resilience and adaptability of the Spanish business ecosystem and our entrepreneurs who play a vital role in it. Startups are a core pillar for Spain's economic recovery. They generate value, jobs, and new business opportunities that—through tech-based solutions—continue to bolster the economy.
At Google for Startups, we've learned that digital tools are critical in the face of new challenges. That's why we've adapted to remain vital to entrepreneurs and give them the necessary support to continue growing exponentially in this new stage.
Following our philosophy of accepting challenges as they arise and seeing new opportunities even in turbulent times, at Google for Startups, we invite you to reflect on the ways you've learned this past year.
To show the work of our entrepreneurs and the Google for Startups team during 2020, I'd like to share the economic data that gives value to the time, dedication, and effort invested with a common purpose: the economic impulse of our entrepreneurial ecosystem."
- Sofia Benjumea Head of Google for Startups, Europe, Middle East, and Africa
