What is MWCapital?

With the support of the public and private sector, MWCapital focuses on four areas: the acceleration of innovation through digital entrepreneurship (The Collider), the transformation of industries through digital technology (5G), the rise of digital talent among new generations and professionals (Digital Talent),, and the reflection on the impact of technology in our society (Digital Future Society)..
Collectively, our programmes are positively transforming the economy, education and society. 

What is Barcelona Digital Talent? 

Barcelona Digital Talent is a public-private alliance born in 2017 that aims to position Barcelona as a capital of digital talent. Large companies in the process of digital transformation, start-ups, technology providers or innovation hubs are looking for the same type of talent, that professional who has the knowledge to develop new technology. This lack of talent has a direct impact on the competitiveness that the Barcelona ecosystem can generate compared to other reference cities. 

To reverse this situation, the program works on two main lines of action: the reorientation of professional profiles towards the digital sector and the recruitment of international talent. Both are aimed at attracting new talent in the short term. Likewise, the alliance contributes to weaving a network of companies linked to the need to attract new talent. 

Some of the services or activities that are carried out are awareness campaigns, mentoring programs, awareness workshops, training of digital skills, scholarship campaign or speed dating activities, among others, as well as recruitment missions in other cities of the EU or connection of international students with companies in the digital sector in Barcelona. 

Some of the services or activities carried out in the field of attracting international talent are: recruitment missions in other cities of the EU or connection of international students with companies in the digital sector in Barcelona.
