Last week, Conector – Barcelona’s high-growth startup accelerator, held their second Demo Day of 2014 at IESE business school. As accelerator programs of various shapes, sizes and business models are expanding across Europe, there’s always eager anticipation to see the results. For most accelerators, those results first appear in the form of a Demo Day – an afternoon where the accelerator program’s greater network of investors, advisors, mentors and press come to hear presentations from the entrepreneurs that have been working tirelessly on their startups for the last 3-6 months.
More than 80 private investors and venture capitalists attended last Friday’s demo day at IESE to witness the following 5 Barcelona startups present their projects that have been accelerated in Conector since last June:
OnyouGo – an incorruptable social algorithm helping users find the best prices for the products they want to buy. Focusing on consumer electronics, OnYouGo offers price comparison and other critical product information.
