Cuatrecasas Acelera has stand at trade fair


From October 4 to 6, the “N@ve de Madrid” hosted the most important trade fair for startups and entrepreneurs in Spain. The South Summit has established its place as a key part of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The event gathered together approximately 12,000 people, including exhibitors and visitors. 

Cuatrecasas was represented by its startup accelerator program, Cuatrecasas Acelera, now in its second year. Over 10 lawyers, including some of the firm’s partners and the program’s coordinator, Andrea Ortega, were at the stand. 

Two of our M&A lawyers, Francisco J. Martínez Maroto and Ignacio Escrivá de Romani, gave a talk entitled “Key Legal Matters. Legal Matters are Key,” discussing the key legal matters to consider when starting a new business. Also, the founders of Councilbox, a startup that participated in the first Cuatrecasas Acelera program, made a pitch on the first day of the event, explaining its experience and how its project is developing. 

In this way, Cuatrecasas reinforces its commitment to startups and the entrepreneurial ecosystem, a sector that is constantly evolving.
