On January 1st 2005, the 'Madrid Emprende' Economic Development Agency was founded, as part of the Economic and Employment Department of Madrid City Council. It has been established to place Madrid in that select group of leading world cities such as London, Paris, New York and Tokyo. To do so, the Agency is working to both encourage and drive forward the economic development of our city and its economic fabric, through three specific areas: competitiveness among small and medium sized companies, encouraging entrepreneurship, and improving the commercial infrastructure of the city and attracting foreign investment.
Madrid Emprende prioritizes the geographical rebalancing of the city, by undertaking projects in disadvantaged districts and by encouraging change in the city's economic development model, so as to move towards more knowledge and innovation-intensive economic and business activities, thus making the city more competitive. All of this is being carried out with the collaboration of the city's key socio-economic players.
One of the purposes of this body is to work as closely as possible with our citizens, which is why, using this website, we want to make the services and projects that we undertake every day closer and more accessible.
The Economic Development Agency's website aims to provide users with information and activities relating to the Agency, and is also seeking to bring resources that facilitate access and participation to our services within your grasp: information about setting up a company, the availability of industrial land, pre-registration for information seminars, forms to create cooperatives or private workers societies... as well as many other things that we will be adding in the future.
Our path and our goal is to create a space that provides practical and interesting contents for the citizens of Madrid.
