5GMED at the 5G TURBO Accelerator Demo Day in Barcelona
Cellnex and Comsa, 5GMED’s partners, were invited last week at the Mobile World Capital Barcelona Foundation to present the project in front of start-ups from the 5G TURBO Acceleration Programme Demo Days.
The event, co-founded by EIT Urban Mobility, is a conclusion of the six-month 5G Turbo Accelerator Programme, hoping to elevate the most influential startups in the urban mobility field with mentoring and financial support.
At the end of the year the programme will select the four most influential startups and receive complimentary tickets to 4YFN, one of the biggest start-up events in Europe, with a special focus on connectivity. The winners will be offered a role of initiative’s ambassadors throughout the next year.
Raül Gonzalez Prats (Cellnex) and Manuel Alfageme Alonso (Comsa) presented 5GMED and its challenges. The panel moderated by Marjorie Grassler (MWC) was also focused on how start-ups can be involved in the project. After the meeting, the start-ups were invited to discuss with the panellists.
