Wayra, Endeavor and the Bankinter Innovation Foundation released, at the end of 2022, the results of the II annual report of the Scaleup Spain Scale Network initiative. The data indicated that the Spanish scaleup ecosystem is the one that grew the most in 2021 among all Spanish companies. In 2021, Spanish scaleups increased their turnover by 96% over the previous year, compared to the 17.9% increase that occurred on average in all Spanish companies as a whole.

Although there are no official data yet, forecasts for the preceding 12 months indicate a turnover growth of around 55%, especially driven by Growth phase scaleups (more than 10 million in turnover) and Scaler (more than 1 million euros in turnover), with forecasts of an increase in their turnover of 169% and 114% respectively.

In terms of employment, the 119 scaleups that are part of the study generated 18,000 direct jobs in 2021, a growth of 86% compared to 2020. The data from the report indicates that the scaleups in the Rocket phase (more than 50 million billings) were the ones that generated the most jobs, with an increase of 103% compared to the previous year, followed by the Scalers, with a 91% and a 23% increase for the Growth phase.

In 2022, it is expected that Spanish scaleups will have managed to generate more than 850,000 jobs, between direct and indirect positions, which would mean a 60% increase in employment generated by ecosystem actors.

The companies covered by the report have also achieved attract a total of 6,936 million euros in investments, with a forecast of attracting 2,317 million more in the coming years. The main investors originate from Spain, especially in the early stages, although the projection of these companies tends towards internationalization both in terms of attracting investment and growth.

And it is that, on average, the scaleups of the study operate in 14 countries. Although the domestic market continues to be the main focus of activity, followed by the Anglo-Saxon market and, more discreetly, Mexico, the expansion plans of the Spanish scaleups take into account other European destinations such as Germany, Italy and France.

The report indicates in its data on gender that 21% of the companies in the study have women in their founding team, and this number is lower in younger companies.

On the other hand, the report shows that a Spanish startup usually takes between four and seven years to reach the scaling phase. As you progress through the process of becoming a scaleup, your challenges evolve; Being at the beginning the development and improvement of the product, internationalization and access to capital and focusing more on attracting and retaining talent in later phases.

Barcelona offers 200,000 euros to the project that reduces the accident rate of motorcycles

Barcelona City Council has launched a challenge for companies, startups, universities and innovation centers to present urban solutions that have as objective reduce motorcycle-related accidents. The chosen projects, which will be applied in the city, are part of the Barcelona Innova Lab Mobility initiative that promotes pilot tests to improve mobility.

Barcelona is one of the European cities with a greater presence of motorcycles and mopeds which represent 33% of the total census of vehicles, and motorcycle drivers account for 86% of the seriously injured, according to the balance of road accidents for the first half of 2022. With the aim of reducing accidents and increasing road safety in the city, these entities have launched this initiative to find and apply innovative solutions on the streets of the city, with the collaboration of the Tomorrow.Mobility show organized by Fira and the EIT Urban Mobility (European Union initiative).

The challenge, launched internationally, counts with an economic endowment of 200,000 euros, which will correspond to a maximum of 80% of the total amount of the winning solutions. The projects can be aimed at resolving the accident rate from behavioral innovation, that is, with solutions related to driving habits, and from technological innovation.

The execution time of the selected proposals is 18 months, of which the pilot phase must be a minimum of six. The proposals must be applicable in a real environment in the short term and must define, in this sense, its deployment space. In addition, it must achieve quantifiable results in relation to the safety of motorcyclists and third parties, which are lasting over time. Its innovative and differential component will also be valued both in the methodologies and resources used and in its execution.

This call is aimed at companies, startups, universities, research centers, technology centers, associations and foundations that have until next March 1 to present their projects. A committee of experts will assess the technical quality of the works presented and will choose the winning solutions that could be applied in Barcelona during that same year. The projects will have international projection with their participation in the next edition of Tomorrow.Mobility, which will be held next November together with the Smart City Expo World Congress at Fira de Barcelona.

Microsoft Teams integrates into Elgato Stream Deck

Elgato Stream Deck

The Elgato Stream Deck is a very interesting peripheral that we had the opportunity to analyze at the time, and that allows you to create different shortcuts and functions that will be associated to each of the available buttons. It allows you to create different usage profiles, and we can switch between them in a very simple way.

For example, we can assign to a button that directly opens a web page, to run a specific application, to perform a specific action and we can also set specific commands and download completely free applications. It is a very interesting solution, especially for professionals who are dedicated to content creation and streaming.

The point is that the Redmond giant has released an official plugin that allows you to integrate an Elgato Stream Deck device with Microsoft Teams. This plugin was announced by the American company earlier this week, but it was officially launched yesterday. The installation process is quite simple, but we can find more information in the official Microsoft forums.

Once installed, we can use the Elgato Stream Deck to access shortcuts and specific functions that will improve our user experience with Microsoft Teams. Thus, for example, we can blur the background in a video call by pressing a button, and we can also assign other specific functions such as raising and lowering our hand, muting ourselves, recording, and even to show live reactions during meetings.

This new plugin enhances the value of the Elgato Stream Deck, making it a very interesting solution for those who work remotely and have to participate in frequent video calls and events. Obviously it is still an excellent option for content creators and streaming professionals as well. I remind you that it is available in different versions, and that the standard MK.2 model with 15 buttons is priced at €149.99.
