In mid June we got an exciting invitation to present FunToad in the startup garden in the Sonar 2016 Festival in Barcelona.
Sónar+D is the international conference that brings together a combination of activities with a common theme: The relationship between creativity and technology, and the digital transformation of the cultural industries involved. The celebration takes place in Barcelona in Fira Montjuïc, parallel to Sónar by Day, and brings together experts from around the world (technicians, entrepreneurs, artists, companies and researchers) to present initiatives and tools that will shape future creative experiences in the fields of music, visuals, interactive content and transmedia platforms.
We presented FunToad at the Startup garden, Following an international call for submissions, which we didn't apply for, we were selected and invited with thirty other selected startups and given a booth for exhibiting our project in front of a potential audience of 50,000 people (Sónar+D and Sónar, by Day visitors during the three days of the festival). In addition to this, we enjoyed many opportunities and advantages in the inspirational and creative framework of Sónar+D as mentoring and networking sessions, lectures, meetings with investors.
We can surely say it was worth it for us, for three days we had been surrounded by our potential users, customers and investors, in an amazing vibe of a never ending party
Thank you the Sonar team for inviting us, we hope to see you again next year
