Entrepreneurs usually go against the tide of conformity to follow their own instincts and try something different. This is already a challenging process. At a time when risk-taking is not the modus operandi, those who follow their ambition also face obstacles beyond their control. The financial crisis in the Euro zone has driven many young people out of their traditional jobs and forced them to search alternative sources of income.
Especially in Madrid, the capital of Spain, it has been the drive and risk-taking attitude of young entrepreneurs that have lifted up the city from its financial sickbed. Escaping the dismal job market, frustrated Madrileños are looking for better alternatives. From restaurants to clothing stores, this new generation of entrepreneurs is transforming the economic landscape of Madrid.
