The Opportunity in Catalunya, Spain for Corporations
While in Barcelona for the Barcelona Design week, I had a chance to visit the National Art Museum of Catalonia (Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya). The city has a tradition of design and architecture and the tradition shows in huge investments in public art, architecture and design education. The photo below is a view of the city from the Museum.
However, the region is suffering from more than 15% unemployment. A friend who is from the area told me that unemployment among new college graduates is more than 50%. While this is terrible news, this might be a great opportunity for companies to take advantage of well trained, relatively low-cost talent in the area.
