Startupbootcamp has a proven, mentor-driven and industry-focused model for accelerating start-ups that has resulted in 75% of programme graduates continuing to be active and 70% having raised additional funding from many of the worlds leading VCs and angels.
Since 2010, Startupbootcamp has been building Europe's largest network of more than 2,000 start-ups, investors, and partners active in over 30 countries. These mentors and alumni play an active and often hands-on role in supporting each Startupbootcamp start-up as they solidify their company's business model and scale operations. Startupbootcamp has created an extremely efficient accelerator programme that attracts the very best global entrepreneurs.
Startupbootcamp makes this happen with the help of several partners, like Google, Amazon, Paypal, Vodafone, Bosch, Mercedes Benz, and CISCO, to mention just a few.
Now, Startupbootcamp is coming to Barcelona with a programme that will begin in January, delivering support, mentorship, and connections to high quality start-ups from all around Europe and mentors from Yahoo, Intel, Telefonica, and CISCO, among many others. This 3-month acceleration programme will give those start-ups a huge boost. In addition, start-ups will have the chance to pitch at the Mobile World Congress - 4YFN in March!

At the moment, Startupbootcamp is looking for start-ups to join the programme and to increase its network of mentors and partners in Barcelona, in order to enable these start-ups to grow and achieve their full potential. They hope to find some enthusiastic mentors from Barcelona Global that are willing to invest some of their time in helping young entrepreneurs make their enterprises a success!
