In November, we started activities giving face-to-face training in Tokyo (you can read more about our experience with Jethro in Tokyo in this article). The mentoring was facilitated by 4 of our experts who traveled to the Japanese capital for that purpose. Subsequently, teams were formed and they continued to be trained virtually on our online campus.
The final stretch of so many months of preparation came when Japanese startups traveled to Barcelona on February 24-28 and participated in the 4YFN.
During their stay in Barcelona, startups visited Canòdrom Parc de Recerca Creativa, carried out various Networking activities, meetings with corporates of their interest visited the Mobile World Congress as well as the reference hub at Pier01. The 9 startups chosen presented their startups at 4YFN , before the auditorium full of attendees, in an event that was energized by Pedro Olivares and had the influencer Un Gato Nipón, who narrated his stay in Japan, his impressions of the Japanese culture and the professional quality of the Japanese.
