Startupbootcamp is Europe’s leading accelerator program for startups in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Eindhoven, Istanbul, London and Barcelona. Since launching, Startupbootcamp has accelerated 241 startups of which 71% went on to receive funding.
Together with IESE MBAs we were invited to the 2016 Barcelona edition on February, 6th. We faced real issues of 11 different startups in teams of 3-4 students. These startups work on the topic “Internet of things and data” and are originally from around the world and part of Accelerator Program of Startupbootcamp (SBC) in Barcelona these months.
Our hard work got a pizza-break for lunch organized by Deliveroo Barcelona who also gave us great insides in the food delivery industry and shared with us their experiences from the Barcelona launch last year.
It was a great opportunity to network and experience real startup problems! So if you missed it, you can look for more info here: http://www.startupbootcamp.org/ or look for Startupbootcamp in social media.
