Given the nature and reputation of South Summit, the leading global event for the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, we decided to give it a go and we applied a few months ago. We were ecstatic to find out that we had been chosen as part of the 100 Finalists, having competed with thousands of applicants from around the world.
This year’s event was co-organized by IE University and supported by global partners BBVA, Mutua Madrileña, AstraZeneca, Endesa, Wayra – Telefónica Innovation, Google for Startups, and Banco Sabadell’ BStartup, who are one of our main investors, and they were incredibly helpful in providing us with a booth to showcase our platform at the event.
Our CEO, Alvaro Agea, delivered the pitch for the Digital Business vertical, and we faced incredibly tough competition. Ultimately, Usyncro was the winner but we felt honored and humbled to have had the opportunity to deliver our pitch and showcase our next-gen platform in front of an incredible panel, as well as receiving very generous feedback from both them and many of the attendees.
This tenth edition of South Summit brought together the Spanish and global entrepreneurial ecosystem, completely filling the space for three days. Of all the attendees, 40% were startups, 30% were corporations and 12% were investors. In addition, more than 1,000 one-to-one meetings were held, and 220 investment funds (72% international) with a portfolio of 250,000 million dollars were also present. It was an incredible opportunity for us to meet like-minded entrepreneurs and learn from the wealth of investors present, with an easy way to network thanks to the events’ app.
We look forward to participating again in future!
