As Barcelona continues its metamorphosis into a global technology hub, it’s hard to keep up with all of the change and activity happening around the city. Just a few years ago, Barcelona didn’t have any accelerator programs. Now, there are at least 6 and more on the way. One which we have been following closely since their launch in late 2013 is Conector Startup Accelerator, an accelerator founded by eight successful entrepreneurs that has been working and helping more than 40 startups around Spain.
This semester Conector launched their latest class of startups with 8 startups from different sectors that want to be the future:
Ursulitas: shoe brand that combine tendency, quality and medium heels. Founder Úrsula PonceVudoir: Social-Fashion App helping people to decide in which of two specific outfits they look nicer and to see what dress code others like to wear for a certain occasion. Founder Alina Franco and Paolo Rizzardini
Conector is an accelerator startups created by Carlos Blanco, Xavier Verdaguer, Marc Vidal, Elisabeth Martinez, Miguel Vicente, Gerard Olive, Risto Mejide and Marc Ros. A minimum of 15 projects will be accelerated each year and the program has the support of partners like First Tuesday BAN, BAN Antai, Nuñez y Navarro, ONO, Epson and others.
