At MadBlue we work to promote and generate a positive social and environmental impact through innovation, investment, technology, music, sports and culture.

THE EVENT OF THE YEAR WHERE INNOVATION HAS A PURPOSE

MadBlue Impact Summit has established itself as the annual event in the innovation and impact investment sector in Madrid.
For two days, entrepreneurs with the most innovative solutions, investors, organisations and institutions, key players in the economy and regulatory bodies, and companies determined to become the leaders of the future, connect in this event where they share knowledge and build the links, synergies and the necessary transactionality to drive change towards a better planet and a better society. Do you also want to connect with them?
