There is no place like Barcelona. Spain’s cultural capital is known for its beautiful climate and stunning architecture, but the city itself has developed from a top holiday destination into one of the most buzzing entrepreneurial hubs in the world. Harbour.Space is located in the bustling 22@ innovation district - the center of the tech and startup scene, but still five minutes from the sea. Work hard, play hard.
