Who we are
Círculo de Empresarios (CdE) was created in 1977 as a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship, private initiative and a market economy.
CdE acts as an independent think tank in Spanish society by expressing ideas, carrying out studies and issuing opinions to help improve economic and social development.
CdE also serves as a center for discussion and debate by bringing together personalities from different sectors (government business, academia, media, civil society) and promoting a constructive dialogue about matters of general interest, particularly those involving the private business sector.
CdE is action-focused: it operates a series of programs and activities that help promote cooperation and the transfer of knowledge between the business world and other sectors of society, and help increase general awareness about domestic economic issues.
