ClimaticCo winner of Venture on the Road Cartagena
ClimaticCo was the winning startup in the second stop of Venture on the Road, which took place on 19 January in Cartagena. This itinerant event is organised by Banco Sabadell’s BStartup, SeedRocket, and Wayra, Telefónica’s open innovation hub, in addition to enjoying the collaboration of Google for Startups.
Following the first stop in Oviedo, this Thursday the roadshow resumed its journey in the region of Murcia. The new edition maintains its original objectives: look for the best deal flow in each region and give seed-stage startups the chance to present their projects to investors, and create high quality networking opportunities.
On this second stop of the travelling event, which took place at the European Centre for Business and Innovation of Cartagena (CEEIC), the experience and knowledge of the local ecosystem was at hand, thanks to the presence of the European Centre for Business and Innovation of Murcia (CEEIM), the Institute for Promotion of the Region of Murcia, and the Acho Valley startups association of Murcia.
In this edition, the four finalist startups were:
- Bioprocesia: a startup that converts agri-food by-products into high value protein for the production of healthy and sustainable animal feeds that are rich in proteins and essential amino acids, increasing the useful life of agri-food products.
- Biuwer: an Embedded Analytics platform that allows SaaS businesses and software vendors to create data displays (graphics, dashboards, indicators, maps, tables, etc.) and integrate them into their own applications.
- ClimaticCo: A SaaS that can be easily integrated into 90% of Spanish eCommerce businesses and that offers a dual function by calculating and offsetting the carbon footprint generated by transporting their orders, and by displaying messages to buyers on the brand’s commitment to sustainability.
- Hausera.io: a savings and investment platform in the real estate sector, that operates through real estate tokenization. It allows small savers to optimise their money and invest in the real estate sector with investment tickets starting at €100.
Also taking part in the event was Pablo Carrallo, CEO of Innova 10 Investments and SeedRocket mentor. On this occasion, he gave a keynote speech on investing in startups, offering some very practical advice from the perspective of both the investor and that of startups seeking investment.
