TodoStartups was born as a Blog for Entrepreneurs, Startups and Internet Businesses in June 2010, headed by Pablo Martínez, a technical industrial engineer. In 2013, Arturo de las Heras, President of Grupo Educativo CEF.- Centre for Financial Studies, and Universidad a Distancia de Madrid (UDIMA) learnt about TodoStartups from Linkedin, and contacted Pablo Martínez.
In November 2014, the website became the property of the educational institution, whose mission since then has been to provide entrepreneurs, especially in the field of technology, a journalism platform from which to publicise their innovative initiatives.
Its ultimate goal is to create, both in Spain and in Latin America, an ideal online ecosystem for startups, businesses, entrepreneurs and investors, and one which enters into the informational sectors of creation, innovation, education, politics, economy and research.
In its pages, TodoStartups combines the news written by its journalists responsible for the main events of the ecosystem, with periodic collaboration by experts in the portal’s areas of interest. This creates a symbiosis which favours entrepreneurship and public knowledge of their most significant projects.
TodoStartups is linked to the Research Group in Social and Technological Sciences (GICSOT) of Universidad a Distancia de Madrid (UDIMA) and coordinated by Ana Landeta.
This group is a research platform that supports a new generation of scientific studies in the area of Humanities.
Additionally, it has been registered as an official research group in the National R&D&I Plan. It is also accredited by the National Agency for Assessment and Forecasting (ANEP in Spanish) and will become eligible for the María de Maetzu seal of quality of the Secretariat of State for R&D&I in its third year.
