The past 10 days I was in Mallorca. To be honest, mostly for holidays and to re-charge after organising this year’s EU-Startups Summit, but I also couldn’t help to take a short look at the startup ecosystem of the island.
Let’s be clear: Mallorca isn’t a major hub for startups and tech, but the ecosystem seems to be moving the right direction. After speaking to a few local players on the island and also after getting some valuable tips from the Mallorca Tech Newsletter, I’m happy to introduce you to 10 promising Mallorca-based startups that are currently kicking ass.
