If you’re good at languages… you’re very lucky! There are multiple business ideas. Today knowing languages is a fundamental requirement when accessing most jobs and, therefore, the learning offer is increasing. We recommend spending a season abroad to learn a language, but not everyone can afford it because of work or economic reasons. The possibilities of learning languages have multiplied thanks to the Internet and the latest trend is to receive or teach classes via Skype, breaking all demographic barriers and allowing classes from your own workspace. With a camera, a microphone and headphones … you’re ready for the video call. Join the community of Skype teachers in the Classroom, the most innovative learning system.

Event planning

This business idea is one of the most demanded in recent years. It is increasingly common to resort to companies that are dedicated to the planning, execution and monitoring of events. Figures such as the wedding planner focus on meeting the needs of their clients so that they do not go through stress situations when organizing such a special day. The International School of Protocol (EIP) is one of the best schools where you can train in the field of organizing events and get into a business where there will always be demand.


It’s a fact that the way of consuming has changed in recent times.  Nowadays we have become very hard to please when demanding products and we stay on top of all the latest trends.  The specialised coffee sector hasn’t gone unnoticed, because we don´t conform to just any coffee. People now order it looking for certain characteristics and more and more coffee shops are offering different varieties in order to satisfy customer needs. Companies such as Toma Café can provide you with inspiration and even training to become a specialist.

Flexible Workspaces

Another business model on the rise, which is making more and more companies decide to move their team to these kinds of workspaces.
