My name is Sindre Hopland (@sindrehopland), and I’m a journalist and media creator based in Poble Nou, Barcelona.
Almost two years ago I escaped the winter in Norway for a better life in Barcelona. Little did I know that this place offers more than just warm weather and beautiful beaches, but a thriving community of professionals making Catalunya one of the most vibrant and international business hubs along the Mediterranean.
In Norway I worked as a journalist, both in print and radio for the national broadcaster (NRK.no), so after arriving in Barcelona I looked for a way to cross my writing with my interest in technology and young companies. I found Barcinno and started writing for the only English publication covering startups in Barcelona. I quickly got introduced to the community, and today I work for the venture builder itnig , which invest and help grow technology startups. Right now we’re building Camaloon (link> camaloon.com), Quipu (link>getquipu.com) , Gymforless (link> gymforless.com), Factorial (link> factorialhr.com), Parkimeter (link> Parkimeter.com) and Playfulbet (Link> playfulbet.com).
As a curator of Catalan Voices I will post about the growing startup ecosystem in Barcelona and other things related to startups and technology.
