From among the over 3000 candidates for the Competition, the organizing committee has chosen the 100 start-ups that will take part in the final phase of South Summit 2016 and Zip Security will be one of them.
Italy, Portugal, Bulgaria, Argentina, Mexico, United States or Kuwait are just some of the 15 nations from which the selected start-ups come, although Spain is home to most of them, 61 to be exact.
Although only 5 will be going home with the final prize, the initiatives selected on other occasions have raised over 500 million euros in investments.
The founder of Startup Spain María Benjumea tells us: “At the present time entrepreneurs find it much easier to obtain funding for their projects than to persuade strategic partners to come on board and gain the visibility they need to make their name. Settings such as this at South Summit, where the main players in the entrepreneurial ecosystem congregate, are a great opportunity for generating business and responding to the needs and interests of all parties”.
