From 26th September to 1st October, Appentra attended #Spin 2016 as a finalist in SmartMoney4Starts. The biggest event dedicated to university entrepreneurship held in Spain, #Spin2016 finished with a record attendance of public and support for entrepreneurs. Spin2016 brought together more than 3,000 attendees and built a new innovative and entrepreneurial ecosystem in the City of Culture of Galicia in Santiago de Compostela.
Appentra was selected as one of 15 finalists from 130 Spin-offs to participate in the SmartMoney4Stars.
SM4S had a big agenda, that consisted of:
- StarsFastTrack: intensive acceleration including mentoring and personalized training.
- Partnering & Networking: they have provided us a stand to show Parallware Trainer to the attendees. This allowed us to organize B2B meetings that helped us explore new business and partnership initiatives.
- SM4S Forum:Private gathering with international investors with the aim to generate investment opportunities.
- SM4S Awards: The most innovative companies that have taken part in the SmartMoney4Stars forum were awarded different prizes and were promoted to the public.
