This 2018 we have gone to the 5th Edition of 4YFN an event of Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona.
4 Years From Now (4YFN) is the startup business platform of Mobile World Capital Barcelona that enables startups, investors and corporations to connect and launch new ventures together.
We have visited all the areas reviewing startups, projects and IOT and also have been working in SPACES and amazing places for coworking with others visitors. Be freelance and have an event means to work meanwhile you are enjoying the event. :P
These days, we have seen a lot of friends, so Barcelona is a small city where everyone knows each other.
We are so close with our beloved team and clients in 2015 B-wom: the app to solve architectural and functional problems, they have been nominated to win the 4YFN Awards 2018 from 10 finalist startups selected to pitch. We are wishing them a luckily pitch!
Creating news contacts with Startups but we want to underline two startups: psonrie an app that connects a psychologist to people and Biel glasses, a father project to develop smart glasses to improve visual perception of people with low vision.
Also, we have seen a lot of Betahaus friends, as Susana Grau with her project Seeding Growth , Eduardo Forte: CEO & Co-founder en Betahaus, Kim Fredik as CEO of a new platform to connect patients with Doctors: Abi ; or Albert Arguilés with Cocooking. We have done a picture with Seat (see on our Instagram), and B-next (a card that works with all the financials banks and credits) and have discovered Flutter by Google: easy framework and fast to build beautiful mobile apps.
We have gone to a few Workshops and Keynotes in amazing Areas as Nestle Stage, Banco Sabadell Stage or Airbus Stage. For us the most relevant are:
