Our CEO Almudena de la Mata was elected as a member of the Board of Directors of the Artificial Intelligence Cluster on the 25th of January during the General Assembly in Tres Cantos, which brought together the technology clusters’ partners of the Community of Madrid. The AI cluster is part of the Community of Madrid’s initiative to foster digitalisation in the region.

This appointment highlights the recognition of Almudena’s expertise and vision in the field of AI and Blockchain technologies.

Currently, more than twenty organisations, including leading entities such as BBVA, Banco Santander, Bizum and Fundación Madrid+D, are active members of this cluster. For the coming year, we have an ambitious plan to boost artificial intelligence in the Community of Madrid.

The Community of Madrid has four key technology clusters in the digital field that drive innovative projects: Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Internet of Things and Digital Transformation. Blockchain Intelligence is the co-founder of two of them: Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence, actively participating in their activities.

In the Assembly, López-Valverde, Minister of Digitalisation, reiterated the commitment of the Community of Madrid to attract business and technology. He highlighted the investment of 800,000 euros to promote the clusters in 2024, seeking to position the region at the forefront of Europe in digitisation, with a focus on small businesses and startups. The councillor thanked for the continued support, highlighting Tres Cantos as a pole of attraction for technology companies in the digital transformation of the business fabric.
