What is the 4YFN that takes place at the same time as the MWC?
Ehe 4YFN is an event that was born to cover a need that is not exactly in line with the Mobile World Congress.
Its focus is to give visibility to startups and connect them with investors of all kinds, public institutions or corporations. In this way, they facilitate the possibility of expanding through new contracts and financing in order to become more competitive companies in the future. For this reason, it is called 4YFN (4 Years From Now), its aim is that the startups that attend get enough push to scale their business as much as possible from their attendance at the event.
All kinds of companies participate in the event
It is known that every year many companies from different sectors, both private and public, participate, but always focused on technology.
There are approximately 600 emerging companies, 12 delegations from different countries and some 600 investors from all over the world. Among these startups, 30 of them will go hand in hand with the Spanish Pavilion that is promoted by Red.es and ICEX.
The companies that participate with the Spanish Pavilion must participate in a contest and those that fit the most will receive this subsidy. Companies from different sectors are chosen, but always giving priority to startups with a clear development and investment in the technological aspect. This year registration has already opened, with the possibility of attending up to 30 companies in a rotating format.
Stand design at 4YFN
Stand design at 4YFN is highly varied, from basic startup models to those made for large companies with their own design.
What stands out the most is the type of sustainable stands, the colors and typography usually linked to tech and the lightness of their structures to give priority to the brand and the product or service that is presented.
