cover art for Beyond the Breakthrough featuring Albert Domingo

Albert Domingo is the director of technologies and digital areas at UPF Ventures, the spinout management arm of Pompeu Fabra University, and he joins us to discuss the opportunities and challenges of building an ecosystem in Barcelona.

He also explains why UPF Ventures works with spinouts from other institutions and why Spanish bureaucracy is a particularly difficult matter to contend with for companies in their first year after launch.

Domingo also explores the value of having both domestic and international advisers, such as Tom Hockaday, even if UPF Ventures has no immediate ambitions of expanding outside of Spain.
