Your Barcelona Rider Zeros!
From the plaças of Gràcia to the warehouse incubators of 22@, there’s a distinct sense that Barcelona has woken up from its siesta. A new generation of entrepreneurs, inspired by the city’s seaside beauty and channeling the creative spirit of Gaudí, has put Barcelona on the map as Europe’s new innovation hub.
As a new arrival to Barcelona’s thriving collaborative economy, we were honored to share the first uberPOP ride with Albert Cañigueral and Cristóbal Gracia, OuiShare Connectors and founders of ConsumoCollaborativo.
