— Travel-tech

Amenitiz, a Barcelona-based startup, builds management software for independent hotels. And it’s one of the fastest-growing “Hospitech” companies in Europe. Thanks to advanced digital technology, the platform responds to a problem that has been troubling the hotel sector in recent years: on many hotel websites, direct bookings are still a frustrating and obsolete process, costing hoteliers thousands of euros in lost commissions and margins.

In the digital age, we believe that running a hotel and developing a strong online presence should be as easy as booking a trip on Airbnb, if not easier. Hoteliers, who are increasingly dependent on online distribution, often find that their current technology infrastructure, if any, is unnecessarily labour-intensive as well as expensive. We are trying to change the situation by redesigning a new operating system for hoteliers and turning it into an easy-to-use solution for any hotelier in Europe”, says the director of Amenetiz.

Recently received funding will allow the startup to expand into new markets and accelerate its growth with the aim of becoming a leading global platform in the travel tech sector.


— The Underwater Cellar

The history of this company is a combination of ingenuity, passion, and innovation, it dates back to 2007 when several crates of bottles were found on sunken ships and auctioned for enormous amounts. This is how the LSEB (Underwater Laboratory for Ageing Beverage), the germ of the current Crusoe Treasure winery, was born. “We spent two and a half years submerging wines from different wineries under the sea. We organized blind tastings with professional winemakers, giving them to try the wine which aged underwater and the wine that didn’t. The 90% of tasters preferred the submerged wine“, says Saracho, director of the cellar.

Today, the company – which has a concession for 500 sqm of seabed in the Bay of Plencia, about 18 meters deep – produces and markets ten different wines, both white and red, around Spain, France and Asia, with a price ranging between 59 and 120 euro.

A cellar, but also an artificial coral reef with over 1,500 registered marine species. An entire underwater paradise that has inspired the brand’s identity.

Its wines are divided into three different collections: Sea Soul (mono-varietal wines), Sea Passion (‘coupage’ wines) and Sea Legend (exceptional collections with less than 500 bottles). Each bottle is accompanied by a design packaging decorated with beautiful designs of fish found around the underwater cellar and a tasting card to make this experience even more unforgettable.


— The Learning Revolution

They call themselves change-makers, united by the desire to create a new learning paradigm both from the point of view of contents and from that of methods.

The first Learnlife learning centre was created in Barcelona. It is ​​an innovation community that believes in a freer and more flexible school model: people thrive on a deep sense of purpose in a world where agility, creativity and innovation will increasingly be needed to solve future challenges. Lifelong learning ​​should lead to a greater sense of personal and collective fulfilment, especially given the way and speed with which the world of work and learning is changing.

At the heart of this model is the need for a search for personal well-being, strengthened by a dual approach: nature and technology.

There are many participation offers: full-time or part-time, primary school, secondary school, lifelong learning, Learnlife from home. A fluid proposal that satisfies all the learning needs of students, but also facilitates the new “digital nomadic parents” who enroll their children in targeted courses, without giving up the idea of being citizens of the world. Learnlife’s goal is in fact to reach any place that is today called “home”.
