Falling Walls Spain
On 9 September 2015, the Rafael del Pino Foundation and A.T. Kearney organised the first edition of Falling Walls Lab Spain. Falling Walls Lab is an international forum that took place simultaneously in 18 countries, with the aim of promoting a better world by sharing ideas and strengthening relationships between under 35s. In this competition, the brightest university students from the best Spanish universities and business schools had the opportunity to defend their ideas, their initiatives and their society-transforming projects. The competition allowed participants to compete against students from other universities and business schools, entrepreneurs, scientists and researchers. Their ideas, presented consecutively in three-minute speeches, were evaluated by a prestigious jury made up of ten entrepreneurs and representatives of institutions linked to innovation.
