Barcelona Activa’s 4YFN stand will gather 24 mobile startups
4 Years From Now (4YFN), the Mobile World Capital Barcelona global business platform for the growing community of technology startups, will welcome more than 20.000 attendees in its fourth edition, that will take place within the framework of the GSMA Mobile World Congress (February 27 – March 1).
The expected attendance figure means a 60% growth compared to the previous 2016 edition and strengthens the 4YFN's role as a meeting point for entrepreneurs, startups, investors and big global companies.
Barcelona Activa will be present, for the fourth year in a row, with an exhibition stand that will gather 24 startups connected to the Local Development Agency. The startups either have been incubated in one of Barcelona Activa's incubation facilities or have participated in its entrepreneurship advisory service. Some of them, such as M4Social, are applying mobile technology in the field of social innovation and the Third Sector.
According to the Startup Ecosystem Overview report, the Catalan capital is the fifth European technologic hub, just below London, Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam.
Barcelona leads the startup investments in Spain (56%). Furthermore, Barcelona deals represent 48,2% of the capital from Spanish Exits (mergers, acquisitions...).
The 4YFN Barcelona will also increase its international presence, with representatives from more than 200 countries.
