Tech with a venue: Some end-of-week Barcelona tech events to catapult you straight into the weekend!

So, what is it with Thursday evenings and tech meetups in Barcelona? Actually, what is it with Thursday evenings and any kind of event, cultural, business, tech or whatever! There is this Barcelona obsession with piling everything onto Thursday evenings, no? But, we digress …

If you’re up for not one, not two, but THREE tech events this Thursday, then boy do we have the lineup for you! Leading off the whirlwind is the Coperfield space in Plaza Real, presenting Christer Windeløv-Lidzélius, director of the Danish startups program KaosPilots, who will give a presentation on the school’s 20-year experience in training social entrepreneurs in the art of “learning by doing” … could be interesting learning for BCN entrepreneurs, as FastCompany has singled out KaosPilots as one of the top 10 organizations worldwide for the training of leaders and entrepreneurs:

Next up, at 8 PM is an “After Work – Open Bar – First Social Mixer” at the Hot Bar Tuset, presented by Barcelona Internet Startups, with the promise of with “No Speeches – No Work – Just Fun.” Group organizer and business entrepreneur-investor-professor and startup mentor Jeff Robinson stresses the importance of networking events like these to help startups find techies, capital and partners:

Of course, if you tire easily of all the glass-in-hand networking, but get really excited when it comes to circuitry and pizza, then you might want to head on over to the Ajuntament’s Punt Multimèdia on Carrer Muntadas to get plenty of same along with other techies who share an interest in open-source hardware, Raspberry Pi, Arduino and more:

If all that isn’t quite enough to catapult you straight from Thursday evening into the weekend, well there’s always the bright-and-early option for Friday morning, with SaltoconRed and EasyStartup presenting Ivan Sala of SNTalent, who’ll be speaking at Hotel 1898 about SNTalent’s automated tech solution for those looking to find and hire the right candidate, and those looking to join the right organization:
