Barcelona’s tech and startup scene is so vibrant and dynamic, there’s something happening nearly every day. Even though it was difficult to pick just seven, we’ve selected a few of this month’s interesting events for you to browse through and attend. What’s more, they’re all in English, which is always good news for us expats!

Join the FoodMOB and take part in a conversation about just what sort of an impact these types of apps may have on our (foodie) lives. Find out more here!
