Bridging the Barcelona Start-up Community to the World



Founded in 2017 by Brian Hardman, the #TECHICONS is a member based organization that helps entrepreneurs obtain funding through strategic partnering, education and effective networking. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote Barcelona as a city for startups and help facilitate cross-border global investment.


The TECHICONS Foundation plays host to several annual events including the TECHICONS Annual Investor Road Show, which has helped growth-stage presenting companies raise significant capital to date.

The event coincides with the TECHICONS VIP Gala, hosted in Port Vell, during Mobile World Congress that has been instrumental in helping grassroots-based entrepreneurs. 

The TECHICONS Foundation supports a University Business Plan Competition, which has given students the opportunity to raise their level of real world professional focus and funding for their ventures.


The TECHICONS Investor's Circle offers a unique platform to connect directly with cutting edge start-ups. From accelerators to business angel groups to VCs and those hard to find family offices, if you are a investor looking for a new project, get in touch with us.


“We were extremely fortunate to be one of three companies asked to demo their technology at last years TECHicons VIP Gala. The night was the perfect opportunity to interact with a crowd in a luxurious setting and featured a great blend of investors, startups and tech minded individuals that we could share our passion with.”
