Mind the Byte CEO and founder, Alfons Nonell-Canals, has been chosen as one of three finalists vying for the 2017 Young Entrepreneur Award awarded by the Independent Association of Young Entrepreneurs of Catalonia (AIJEC). The other finalists are Gerard Martret (Camina Lab) and Gerard Subirats (Subirats Bureau).

This was the result after reviewing the more than one hundred nominations submitted this year. As every year, factors such as the consolidation of the initial idea in the form of business, economic and financial viability, entrepreneurship, personal background, international vision, and the challenges and prospects of the nominations submitted were taken into account.

The winner will be revealed in an award ceremony that will be held in the CosmoCaixa museum on June 20. The winner will be chosen by an independent panel of representatives of the Conselleria d’Economia i Hisenda i d’Empresa i Coneixement, Foment del Treball, Barcelona Activa, ACC1Ó, ESADE and IESE as well as personalities from the world of business and communication.

Former finalists of this award include the founders of companies such as Casa Ametller, Wallapop, Glovo, Cornerjob, Munich or Softonic.
