While the members of the jury were deliberating, Carlos Blanco, winner of numerous entrepreneurship contests and with extensive experience in the field of private investment in the new technologies sector, took part to discuss about the best way to launch a suceed startup in Barcelona.
In addition, there were also the members of the startup Mabrian, winner of the first edition of the contest, and Immfy, awarded in the second edition of the Prix. Both explained the progress of their projects and thanked the support received from the French Chamber of Commerce of Barcelona.
