Meetup.com is a truly fascinating website where people can find other people who share the same interests. Anyone can create a group for any sort of activity they like, by paying a fee. Depending on the plan they choose, they will be able to have a smaller or larger number of members join the group. The creator of the group can then organize meetings and events whenever he/she wants to and can either charge or not an entrance fee to the event/meeting. Those who do not wish to create their own meetup can freely explore the existent groups in their area and join as many as they want. Joining a group is free and does not come with the obligation to attend all of the group’s events.
There are a variety of entrepreneurial and startup meetups in Barcelona, finding them is as easy as typing “entrepreneur” on the group search box. Some of the most active meetups currently available are Barcelona Entrepreneurship Meetup and Barcelona Freelance Meetup, which have hundreds of members and are constantly organizing events.
