Network of German-speaking young professionals

We selected based on quality, not status

The network

NeDeNa is the biggest German-speaking network in Spain. Despite of strict access criteria, the network has grown exponentially in the past 4 years to 900 members.

At NeDeNa, the members benefit from a valuable exchange of knowledge and contacts. Presentations at a company’s headquarter, workshops, business lunches or after-work drinks are just a few pillars of the network.

Our top priority is transparency of the network and the equivalence of each member. All participants in the meetups bring qualitative resources that have a long-term benefit for the entire network, as well as for each individual.

Highly productive business meetings

Issue – specific meetings serve as useful information, contacts and know-how transmission between the members. The meetings take place on a monthly basis, at constantly changing, and exclusive locations.

Exclusive network  

The reliability of the network is assured through an exclusive selection process. Combining know-how and experience, as well as the contacts of the members and sponsors, creates a long-term added value for all members involved. 


Valuable knowledge exchange  

Monthly meetings are supplemented by seperate events and online activities. In addition, special expert panels are organized on a regular bases, where members can gain valuable knowledge. 

Free membership

Our focus lays in intangible assets such as know-how, time and the initiative of each member. Therefore, members do not pay any admission or membership fee and in addition, benefit from various discounts
