The Business and Talent Attraction Plan to boost Parc Bit

Costa, accompanied by the regional secretary for Innovation and Digital Society, Antoni Carmona, and the manager of the Bit Foundation, Sebastián González, visited on Monday the companies Hotelinking and Iberiantax, which have recently entered the ranking of the 100 best start-ups of 2023, published by the Association of Science and Technology Parks of Spain (APTE). “They are a great example of what we want to extend to the whole of Parc Bit. Every time we visit the Centre Bit in Menorca or Mallorca we are surprised by the capacity of the companies to understand the needs of the market and to adapt”, explained Costa.

The main objective of today’s visit was to identify the shortcomings of the facilities to give them a new impetus. “It is a privileged environment, but companies do not tend to settle, Parc Bit has to become a pole of attraction for talent and companies,” he said. The councillor also announced that, in addition to improving the facilities at Parc Bit, which are publicly owned to make more efficient use of them, other infrastructures will also be created “to generate and retain talent”.

On the other hand, the Government is also studying the possibility of a change of use. “It could mean that, to attract talent, Parc Bit could be used for temporary rental housing, as well as improving services and transport. We need this flexibility,” said the vice president. Another of the measures being considered is to eliminate the limitation on the use of space of up to 400 m2 for companies dedicated to technology training.
