This week, the twenty-fourth GSMA Mobile World Congress and fifth 4YFN (“4 Years from Now”) conference are held simultaneously in Barcelona. 4YFN is a business event where startups, investors, corporations and public institutions can discover, create and launch new ventures together. Its name comes from the amount of time needed for a startup to become an established project.
 
And here we are again. It is the second time Mind the Byte participates in this conference; three days of instensive meetings with potential investors and collaborators from all over the world. In this occasion, 4YFN coincides with the launch of a new funding round with which we are expecting to raise 3 million euros. This investment will be used to support further R&D, sales and marketing efforts.
 
It is undoubtedly a great occasion, with thousands of attendees who have a real passion for innovation and who offer new ideas that, coupled with a great amount of effort, are paving the way in this constantly changing technological ecosystem.
 
4YFN has been classed as ‘the No.1 startup event for doing business’ and with a large array of activities provided for all of those attending.  Aside from the vast display of startup technology on show, it also has a jam packed programme of activities including keynotes, panels and workshops by leading speakers in the tech industry.
