Collapsing of ideas, of people, of young people, hipsters, dreams more broken than fulfilled. Cities face a demographic challenge, although in reverse. The claim of unlimited opportunities and the culture that those who want to can live with a stress of life, a wage and a quality of survival that has nothing to do with the tranquility, the serenity and the prices of the Spain emptied.
what to Undertake in Madrid? there is No better environment, but at the expense of your own quality of life.
In this scenario was born in Rural Talent, an incubator of startup to use... not to be that throughout the development of the projects and ideas were carried out in villages. "We went to an incubator for startups, and we saw a lot of people that wanted to start but financially could not in Madrid or Barcelona. A lot of people are casting back and not made that step," says Carlos Ramos, one of the founders. Then, a light bulb went on in his head and that of his two other partners: lead the whole process of incubating an idea and training to the entrepreneurs to rural Spain. Much more economic for the participants-650 euros per month, compared to 1,300 euros in Madrid-, with the plus of enjoying that part of our country that is struggling to survive.
The process is simple: Rural Talent search people who carry a minimum of 15 entrepreneurs for six months to learn how to develop your idea. At that time live, eat and sleep in the rural Spanish houses that the own city councils to them to give. The company -in contact with peoples of Galicia, Castile and León, Asturias - located small towns that have a fiber optic, basic supplies and a place in which entrepreneurs can stay during the stay. The councils give them a bed and they bring young people to the municipality. The repopulation in march.
however, its work in the villages is not only confined to the incubator and those who are pointing to it. "It is very difficult to enter the villages. We learned that you have to offer them something, in addition to bring people. The more young people we offer conversations with experts, the middle-aged they intend to take with you, and we also develop building events community: there, the people of the incubator, we do a workshop every week about the matter that drive each person," says Ramos. Win-win for all.
To sign up to the incubator not needed requirements. "You don't need to go with an idea; you can have an idea but no team or team but no idea," says the founder. Learning and development are open to anyone, even though you have an profile type of person: people of 35 years, with work and that wants to make a change to your life but can't afford the life in the city. "There are young people who considered their quality of life in Madrid is very bad. It is people who want to undertake. And it is very expensive. Then, you ask to live an experience. We offer, six months in the rural area of that you can go out with a company and change your life," says Ramos. Even, he says that there is a family that is interested in participating in the project to go those six months with their children; therefore, they are also looking for locations close to educational centres. The demand, in this case, is always right.
at the time, Rural Talent is in the stage of search of those peoples that populate youth. For November the trust can begin the campaign to attract entrepreneurs and stakeholders in January to get the ball rolling with the first people.
"We hope to ensure is continual traffic of people in the towns to which to relocate the project" , " says the founder. Have a vocation of continuity to repopulate little by little the rural English, that is to say, that once lead to a site the first "batch", not leaving at the finish but continue with the project with more edits. Without haste, but without pause, your business is already incubated. Now it is the turn of others, who will be their mentees.Updated Date: 27 September 2019, 00:03
