Madrid, October 5, 2022. - Social Nest Foundation, the global platform originating in Valencia for entrepreneurs and impact investors, is opening new offices in Madrid to boost business and identify new opportunities for generating impact.

The platform currently has a community of 300 entrepreneurs, 500 investors and 50 companies. This opening converges with the capital city's position as the main hub of entrepreneurship in Spain and one of the most important in Europe.

In addition to opening these offices in Madrid, Social Nest Foundation has appointed Marta del Castillo as the platform's new CEO, where she will be in charge of promoting and consolidating the organization's strategies.

The new CEO of Social Nest Foundation, Marta del Castillo, said that the foundation "is a leading company in the sector and constantly evolving. We face the challenge ahead of growing Social Nest Foundation even further with the opening of new offices in Madrid, from where we seek to continue projecting the organization globally and lead the drive to finding solutions to the increasingly pressing challenges facing society at large, from climate change to social, economic and technological inequalities".

Margarita Albors, the founder of Social Nest Foundation, will take on the role of executive president exclusively and will step down as CEO, a position she has also held up to now.
