The debate was attended by the president of the Círculo de Empresarios, Mónica de Oriol, the vice-president of the Spanish Association of Venture Capital Entities (Ascri), Javier Ulecia, the entrepreneur Catalina Hoffman and the president of the Spain Startup Investors Summit, María Benjumea.

Under the slogan "¡¡España Emprende! "Nothing is impossible", a collective initiative has been launched with the aim of unifying efforts, resources and ideas to generate wealth, employment, competitiveness and well-being through entrepreneurship in Spain. The initiative is driven by entrepreneurs, businessmen, business and social organisations, business schools and other institutions that believe in the need and urgency of entrepreneurship in Spain as a response to the new economic challenges of the national and international context.
¡¡España emprende!!! is the expression that "nothing is impossible" for a country that has been and is a country of entrepreneurs, of people with initiative, talent and the desire to develop new opportunities and ideas. It is a reflection of the need to create new companies, to generate new jobs, to seek new markets, to unite people and ideas, and to promote an entrepreneurial society as a driving force for economic and social change.
España emprende!!! sets out the fundamental measures to make the Spanish economy more dynamic, boost private initiative and thus enable the creation of 500,000 companies in the coming years.
