Barca Starta Entry Deadline Extended

The entries for our Barca Starta competition for start-ups, the final of which takes place on Tuesday, 26 February at the Cerveceria Mortiz in Barcelona, are coming in thick and fast, but we want more. To this end, we have extended the deadline by one week. The closing date for entries is now 5pm UK time, Friday 1 February – one week from today.

Barca Starta is our new competition for start-ups that have been trading for less than three years and have less than 20 employees. The final of the competition takes place on 26 February in Barcelona, but to make the final, you need to get through the initial judging round, and to do this, you need to fill in an Entry Form that you can find on the Barca Starta website.

In the final, the competing start-ups will have two minutes in which to pitch their big idea to the judging panel, explaining why their company should win. On offer to the winner is a cash prize, plus exposure in Mobile Marketing’s print and online editions in the form of editorial coverage and free advertising. And all the finalists, of course, will benefit from exposure to the VCs who have expressed an interest in attending the event.

Head for the Barca Starta website now to get your entry in. For more information about entering or sponsoring the Barca Starta competition, email or call him on +44 (0) 20 7183 2920.
