4YFN

4YFN will be held from 28 February to 3 March, in parallel to the Mobile World Congress. It is one of the leading events for the international entrepreneurial ecosystem, bringing together technology startups, investors, corporations and public institutions to generate synergies and joint business agreements.

With Wayra’s participation in 4YFN we want to find new business opportunities and attract talent to the company, as well as position ourselves as a benchmark for open innovation. We are looking for investment opportunities in more mature technology startups that fit in with Telefónica’s strategic projects.

The Wayra stand will have five spaces where our startups will give demos of their products/services. More than 25 startups from the portfolio will participate.
