MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE

GLOBAL VISION OF THE STRUCTURE

Headed by the CEO, the management structure is the internal structure of the Foundation and its affiliates, formed by people specialized in the different areas of activity.

ACTIVITY AREAS OF THE FOUNDATION:

  • Programs: Those areas in charge of conceptualizing, creating and implementing a set of activities, initiatives and/or projects framed and in line with the Foundation’s Strategic Plan. Here’s a list of the current Programs:
    • mVentures BCN
    • 4YFN
    • D·Lab
    • Going Digital
    • mSchools
  • Corporate Services: Those areas responsible for the administration and control of the Foundation and its subsidiaries, as well as matters of a general corporate nature not directly developed by the Programs. Below is a list of the current departments that include Corporate Services:
    • Finance & General Administration
    • Marketing, Communication & “Engagement”
    • Strategy

The diversity and complexity of the activities we carry out, as well as the number of institutional and business relationships of the Foundation which are necessary for the achievement of its activities, requires a great talent and knowledge in the management of the programs and the need to provide corporate services capable of absorbing (in dimension and typology) what this diversity means. This requires expert coordination between both management structures. This coordination is even more complex due to the existence of different legal entities and an important portfolio of investees.

MANAGEMENT BODIES:

  • A. CORPORATE STEERING COMMITTEE: It is the Foundation’s strategic coordination body. It supports the CEO in the definition of the strategic plan, ensures its execution and decides on new lines or initiatives that must be carried out. It also supports the CEO on matters related to the organization policies and procedures.
  • B. PROGRAM COORDINATION COMMITTEE: This Committee coordinates the implementation of the operational plans, deciding, in particular, on transversal issues and opportunities that affect several units. Issues relevant to the execution of the business and the knowledge transmission are discussed.
  • C. CONDUCT COMMITTEE: This committee is responsible for supervising the implementation of the Foundation’s Code of conduct and Responsible Practices. The Compliance Officer, responsible for compliance with the code of conduct, is part of this Committee.
