One of the fastest growing, most dynamic cities in the United States, Seattle is a center for entrepreneurship and social good. Home city of Amazon.com, Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, plus the global headquarters of Fledge.
No where in Latin America has such a blending pot of people and ideas as Peru. This is evident in the food culture in Lima, which blends Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese flavors, it is evident in the landscape, which is a mix of lowlands, mountains, and rain forest, and the same blend is evident in the startup ecosystem.
Put Seattle, Lima, and Europe in a blender, and the result is Barcelona, an ancient yet modern city with a culture that combines the best of Spain, France, and Mediterranean cultures while attracting talent from all across Europe.
