South Summit celebrates its 10th edition with BStartup as Global Partner

From 8 to 10 June, the iconic space at La N@ve in Madrid will once again host South Summit, the leading global connection platform, which this year celebrates its tenth edition.

Under the motto ‘decodifying complexity’, the leading players of the entrepreneurial ecosystem will congregate at this key meeting point for the world of entrepreneurship, which this year bases its entire programme of events on recent technological advances, innovation and the fight against climate change.

This tenth edition will be attended by more than 450 internationally renowned speakers.

At Banco Sabadell’s BStartup stand participants will have the opportunity to meet the management teams of Sabadell Venture Capital, Banco Sabadell’s investment vehicle which invests in late-stage startups; eCommerce professionals, and members of the specialist BStartup branches of Banco Sabadell, who will provide information and advice for startups based on their financial needs.

BStartup, which has supported this event since its first edition, will return as global sponsor of South Summit, which has consolidated its reputation as one of the most important international events for entrepreneurs. In addition, the South Summit Startup Competition will once again be held this year, with 100 startup finalists and aspiring future unicorns competing for victory.

Three companies in which BStartup holds an equity stake: Napptive, Time Is Brain and Aplanet will be present at the competition having been selected from over 3,000 companies hailing from more than 114 countries. We wish them all the best of luck!
