Barcelona, October 30th, 2023 – Mitiga Solutions is proud to announce its partnership with Norrsken House Barcelona, a part of the Norrsken Foundation and Europe’s largest technology and impact hub. The hub opens its doors to over 500 entrepreneurs, investors, and operators from Barcelona, all dedicated to addressing the world’s most pressing challenges. Among the hundreds of start-up and scale-up companies that have already joined the new space are fast-growing companies Cooltra, BeChained, and the largest European Climate Change investors, World Fund.
The Norrsken ecosystem focuses on harnessing technology for the greater good. It aligns seamlessly with Mitiga’s core mission, creating a powerful synergy that promises to drive real change in the fight against climate risk.
Alejandro Marti, CEO and Co-Founder of Mitiga Solutions, shares about his enthusiasm for the collaboration: “In our quest for Mitiga’s new ‘home,’ we discovered the convergence of climate and technology in an international ecosystem – Norrsken. Their tech-driven approach and visionary roadmap captivated us and was a direct match with our vision. Joining forces with Norrsken’s Barcelona hub marks a new chapter for scaling companies like ours, as we unite with Norrsken to lead the global climate risk agenda.”
This partnership underscores Mitiga’s unwavering commitment to leveraging science, technology, and innovation to address one of the world’s most pressing challenges – climate risk.
Norrsken House Barcelona is more than just a workplace, it’s a catalyst for change. The hub provides access to a network of like-minded individuals who are committed to using technology and innovation for the greater good.
Marc Jordana, CEO of Norrsken House Barcelona, explains the vision behind this initiative: “In Barcelona we have already proven that we can scale winning ideas and be a magnet for entrepreneurial talent. By building the biggest impact hub in Europe, we want to put Barcelona and its founders firmly on the map. We designed Norrsken House Barcelona to bring the impact and entrepreneurial community together in one place. This approach is especially important during challenging economic times for founders, as we’ve seen in the past 18 months – which is why we strive to provide all the key ingredients that local impact entrepreneurs need to thrive.”
The new Norrsken House Barcelona, situated beachside at Passeig del Mare Nostrum 15, is an embodiment of sustainability. It has undergone a 10 million euro renovation project that embraces a sustainable design ethos, using recycled or repurposed materials and smart design solutions to minimise its environmental footprint.
For Mitiga, this partnership represents a significant step forward in our mission to tackle climate risk head-on. If you’re curious to learn more about Mitiga’s work and our involvement with Norrsken Barcelona, contact us.
