FAQs

As an entrepreneur, you must dedicate yourself full time to the project, from the team’s creation phase during the Collision Weekend. From here, you will participate in the conception and validation of the market opportunity, the creation of the startup and execution of the action plan agreed with The Collider’s team.

If the validation of the business opportunity is positive and your profile is sufficient to carry out the role, you will be nominated as the Co-­Founder of the created startup.

As one of the selected to take part in The Collider, this does not automatically guarantee that you are going to become the Co­-Founder of a future company.

To finally decide whether to create the startup or not, you must have validated that a business opportunity exists and demonstrate that you have the profile needed to join a team of Co­Founder’s.

Ideas should arise and materialise during the Opportunity Validation of the programme. However, there is no problem if the participant wishes to expose his or her idea during the process.

Co­-Founders will be required to move into the offices of the Mobile World Capital Foundation at Pier01 during the period of the incubation process. Pier01 is a technological hub of 10,000m2 located in the Palau de Mar Building, overlooking the Port of Barcelona, home to more than 80 companies and 1,000 professionals.

This initiative was created by Barcelona Tech City to turn the city into a global technological hub.

The seed investment awarded to each startup to develop a minium viable product will be up to 50.000€. Once the program is finalised, mVenturesBcn holds the right, but nor the obligation, to co-invest in the project together with other stakeholders.

The successful and unsuccessful candidates will be announced on the 9th of November via email.

Once the Venture Building phase is finalised, the startups that have succeeded in attracting the market’s interest will be offered an incubation space for three further months to develop their business and fundraising strategies.
