Do you think the Spanish entrepreneurial profile has changed or somehow evolved in the last years? The answer to this question is: NO. It remains quite similar to how it was 5 years ago. Read carefully this post, as we are going to define the radiography that puts on the table the standard profile of those who are diving into the entrepreneurial sector in our country.
Entrepreneurial profile in Spain
As it came from the Map of entrepreneurship in Spain presented in 2014 by the South Summit (the meeting of entrepreneurs, investors and large companies) and the Map of the entrepreneur presented at the celebration of the South Summit during October, most of the entrepreneurs are men with university studies, between 35 and 44 years old, and although the ecosystem is currently more established than in 2014, one of the main requests of entrepreneurs is still an improvement in taxation.
