Patio: Madrid’s New Startup Accelerator

Madrid partners with Patio to birth an expansive innovation and startup campus, poised to lead Spain and Latin America in redefining sustainable entrepreneurship. The dynamic collaboration promises a transformative space for startups, corporations, and investors to converge, fostering collaborative projects and societal impact.

Madrid, in collaboration with Patio, has ignited a groundbreaking initiative set to reshape the landscape of innovation and startups. The agreement signals the commencement of a visionary plan to launch the innovation and sustainable startup campus by late 2023. The first physical hub, spanning 36,500 square meters at Ruiz Picasso, 11, in Madrid's Renazca district, will host Patio, occupying an impressive 2,300 square meters.

Isabel Díaz Ayuso, President of the Community of Madrid, emphasized the project's inclusive benefits, heralding it as a win-win for startups, corporations, investors, universities, and the administration. The campus, poised to be Spain and Latin America's largest entrepreneurship and sustainable innovation hub, will feature tailored programs to accelerate startup growth, innovation initiatives for companies, and a premium space for project development.

Patio, a non-profit association formed by visionary companies like BMW Group, Iberia, Inditex, L’Oréal, Mahou San Miguel, Merlin Properties, and Pascual, aims to establish Madrid as a cross-sectoral hub influencing innovation and sustainability across Spain, Portugal, and Ibero-America. Javier López Zafra, President of Patio Innovation & Startups Campus, envisions Patio as a modern and diverse space, a global reference for innovation, entrepreneurship, and sustainability.

The project's core focus on innovation, entrepreneurship, and sustainability aligns with its commitment to fostering high-quality employment and wealth creation for societal benefit. With the support and financing from founding partners, Patio embarks on its developmental journey, planning to kickstart the first Open Innovation programs in November. Patio's ultimate ambition is clear: to emerge as the go-to campus for entrepreneurship, innovation, and sustainability in Spain, Portugal, and Ibero-America. Stay tuned as Madrid paves the way for a revolutionary startup ecosystem!

FAQ

Dealmate is like if Tinder, Uber, and Techcrunch had a baby

We embrace the startup culture and provide founders with a digital place to learn, stay up to date, and discover providers, colliding both worlds for the first time in a match-making tool :)

Like Tinder because…

We use proprietary software to match startups with a curated selection of studios, agencies, and professionals by summiting a simple form with their needs, budget, and timeframe.

Inspired by Uber infrastructure…

Providing an end-to-end experience by managing the entire process on a single platform, we reduce the stress, hunt, and communication issues often experienced during the briefing, payment, and even feedback stage.

With the Techcrunch approach…

We aim to empower the ecosystem by amplifying stories from founders and providers to become a powerhouse of content leveraging the massive reach of online media into attention for our partners.

Who is behind dealmate?

Dealmate was born out of the frustration of Iñigo as a startup founder, Adrian burned out as a creative studio owner, and the experience of Sharon being a programmer and designer. Our journey as founders inspired us to create the platform we all dreamed about, facilitating the deal flow experience between startups and providers.
