Enxarxa Maresme is a programme aiming to bring the region’s public resources closer to private companies and/or entrepreneurs. El Maresme has 30 municipalities (town halls) at the service of companies and entrepreneurs in the region. All of them are coordinated by the Consell Comarcal del Maresme, which also has the support of different institutions involved such as: PIMEC, FAGEM, Cambra de Comerç, the syndicates Comisiones Obreras and UGT and the Diputació de Barcelona.
On April 26th the official presentation of ENXARXA MARESME took place at Can Jonc, in Alella. All in all it was a fantastic opportunity to do a networking session and meet all the main actors of the region.

In brief, the best way to make our business network grow, diversifying the risk and, in the process, getting to know the wealth and products of the region.
