  1. 1. Tyba’s measures for success and barriers to achieving them Prepared for Eurapp, June 2013
  2. 2. Tyba is an early-stage startup based in Madrid • Opened our offices September 2011 in Madrid, Spain • 10 person team from 6 different countries • Growing to 20+ people this year • Currently in the process of closing a >1mm seed round (announcement coming soon)
  3. 3. Key measures for success • Viral growth factor • # of people placed in jobs & internships • Key companies on board per geography • Penetration rate within key universities • Key people in Tyba’s talent pipeline • Securing public funding
  4. 4. Tyba’s #1 challenge in Madrid is recruiting engineering talent • Top talent in Spain is difficult to reach out to and attract to startups • We see a switch in mentality that more young engineers choose startups vs. corporates, so that they “can have an impact on the product” However, it is still early-days
  5. 5. We see huge potential to build talent-bridges between countries in the EU • To expand our talent pool we decided to start building talent bridges: Starting with Portugal-Spain: • Hosting hackathon events (first Oporto one 4-7th July in Lisbon) • Reaching out to local developer communities • Improving communication between the cities Lisbon Madrid
