Sofia Benjumea, CEO of Spain Startup, the producers of The South Summit in Madrid, has been selected to be the head of Google Campus Madrid, the third Campus opened by Google in Europe.

While she doesn't consider herself an entrepreneur, Benjumea has been actively fighting for the Spanish ecosystem for the past three years, bringing the best of the best to what has become Spain's largest tech event, The South Summit. In just three years, the Spain Startup team has helped position Spain as one of the hottest investment countries for European VCs.

Despite her new job, Sofia will still be involved with the conference in an advisory role. Meanwhile, Liz Fleming, current Deputy Director of IE Venture Lab, will join the Spain Startup team as VP of International Relationships and Nacho Mateo will be heading Startups & Platforms operations.

We expect to see great things coming from Campus Madrid during the next year, starting with an increasing number of Europeans passing by Spain's capital for official startup business.
