As we told a few days ago, the I Call for the Accelerator program has generated great interest from project initiatives, startups or companies with technological development proposals.
The team of La Lonja de la Innovación is extremely proud of all the talent that is gathering around this initiative, the selection has not been easy.
Of all the applications received, only 9 reached the exhibition phase. In this phase the representatives of each project were able to defend it before the Selection Committee formed by staff and mentors of the initiative itself, and Telefónica professionals. All participants had 30 minutes to defend their project, distributed between a presentation time, and a part dedicated to answer questions from the Committee members.
As a result of this session and due to a technical tie, 7 projects were finally chosen, instead of the 6 planned, which are the ones that will become part of the Accerelator program, with a duration of 8 months, extendable to another 4 months.
During this period, the participating companies will coexist in a collaborative innovation environment. In addition, they will participate in sessions with professional mentors in different digital, technical and business areas that will help them to move forward with their innovation projects, to promote networking and the creation of synergies with the different stakeholders of the ecosystem.
The support of the initiative will contribute to the access to public and private capital funding, as well as to the visibility of the projects in events, meetings and communication channels of La Lonja de la Innovación.
