In Spain, women are busy launching startups

Spain · Sep 12, 2018 · By Amalia González

Official data show women-led startups are on the rise in Spain. We take you to some of the biggest names in the game


Former lawyer Lourdes Ferrer already had two startups under her belt when she struck gold with Percentil, an e-store selling “like new” second-hand children’s clothes that went on to snag millions of euros in funding. It was also named “best innovative idea” at the RTVE Emprende Awards in 2015.


Ferrer is regarded as a role model by many female entrepreneurs in Spain, both aspiring and actual. And she remains hungry for more: Percentil, she has said, would not be her “last adventure” as an entrepreneur.
