Metropolitan microglobalisations. Barcelona, the new entrepreneurs


SEVEN THOUSAND SMALL ENTREPENEURS MAKE UP ONE LARGE COMPANY: The commercial drive of certain new Barcelonians has changed the physiognomy of many streets and specific industrial estates. In what are often very difficult conditions in the work environment, the appearance of a large number of small companies has revitalised activities that were in decline, such as small businesses, and has promoted new production and especially distribution activities, to such an extent that new unplanned commercial centres and areas have appeared in the city.

 
 

This is a geographically relevant fact and has certain economic weight in Barcelona, as it has in other cities in which the process is at an even more advanced stage. A large part of these initiatives are based on transnational practices, which have their own exchange channels. This is one of the most characteristic features of this connected, cosmopolitan and entrepreneurial Barcelona, where quite a few migrants have become new economic agents of the city thanks to their transnational commercial practices.
