Adevinta Spain (formerly known as Schibsted Spain) has signed an accord with tech non-profit Barcelona Tech City. More a friendly agreement than a hard business deal, the two businesses will cooperate to promote Barcelona as a technology hub and support its tech culture.

In its press statement, Barcelona Tech City inevitably mentioned “synergies” and sharing of knowledge, with CEO Miquel Marti saying the accord was of “great importance”.

Linguistic fluff notwithstanding, Adevinta Spain is no doubt a valuable ally and representative for the Catalan capital’s tech ambitions. As the owner of Milanuncios.com, Coches.net, Fotocasa.es, and InfoJobs.net, it’s the biggest classified business in Spain and part of a major global network.

Adevinta Spain recently united 1,000 personnel from five offices at its new headquarters: 22@ in Barcelona’s technology district. This puts it literally and figuratively at the heart of the city’s ambitions.

In a separate press statement, Adevinta praised Barcelona Tech City for “attracting local and international investment, while creating an ecosystem for new and established tech companies to thrive.” CEO Gianpaolo Santorsola said the accord was an opportunity to build relationships within the tech community and work to advance its goals.
