Cataluña’s technology sector is booming and part of that success is down to the high number of startups in Barcelona, emerging companies that have a strong working relationship with technology. In fact, some of the world’s most revolutionary tech companies began life in the Catalan capital, such as the well-known Glovo food delivery app, which lets you buy, collect and have food delivered directly to your home. Currently, this particular app has more than 7 million users worldwide, with a presence in 26 different countries and saw turnover of 52 million euros in 2019 alone.

With this in mind, below you’ll find a snapshot of Barcelona’s entrepreneurial scene and the startups that might just take off in the coming years.

Some of the most promising Barcelona startups: Unnax

Unnax began life in 2016, providing open banking solutions and technology support to banks. In June 2020, it obtained a licence to provide payment services authorised by the Bank of Spain. As such, it became the first fintech company in the world to have the authorisations needed to carry out financial activities, including product development.

That makes it one of the most promising startups in Barcelona today, having obtained permission to operate economic transactions, bringing together both technology and banking processes. What’s more, they’ll soon begin branching out across the Iberian peninsula.
