The company Gamelearn was chosen by the Madrid authority from among 2,000 projects
The President of the Madrid Regional Government, Ignacio González, explained that the company, which produces videogames and simulators for corporate training, will be one of three recipients of financial support provided by the autonomous authority to continue working on new projects.
The decision was announced during the Spain Startup & Investor Summit, a meeting point for entrepreneurs and investors held in Madrid, which was formally opened by the president of the regional government, accompanied by the vice-president and the city’s mayor. The closing ceremony was hosted by the Prince and Princess of Asturias.
Gamelearn took part at the event having been pre-selected as one of the five finalists in its category (“Products and Services”) from among 2000 candidates. It took the opportunity to present its two products, “Merchants” and “Triskelion”, two revolutionary negotiation and time management simulators, respectively, which are already being brought on-stream at more than 200 companies, and have been translated into a range of languages to allow for international expansion. The presentation was given by company CEO and serious games expert Ibrahim Jabary.
The regional president explained that the decision to support companies such as Gamelearn was based on a desire to ensure that the Madrid Autonomous Region is “a zone where talent flourishes and where hard work is recognised and rewarded”.
