A total of 25 companies in their consolidation and growth phase, belonging to the health, sports and food sectors, from all over Spain, will be participating in the third Bootcamp UCAM Flow HiTech organised by UCAM University this week.

Its aim is helping the participating start-ups to obtain funds and to consolidate their projects. In addition, more than thirty meetings between the start-ups that are participating in the Flow programme and several UCAM's research groups have been scheduled in order to create synergy.

‘We should congratulate UCAM HiTech because it is doing an extraordinary job’, affirmed Asier Basterretxea, founder and CEO of Exponential StartUps, and one of the programme’s mentors, who also highlighted that, despite the short life of UCAM’s high-technology incubator, it is emerging as a relevant actor in this ecosystem. Also, ‘it is managing to unite start-ups from all over Spain that compete to be here, in this programme. Regarding entrepreneurship, the expert pointed out that ‘this will no longer be a second option for many people. It will become a first choice, which is the result of desire and necessity’.

For Mireia Muñiz, CEO of YUIT, a start-up within the food sector, this is an amazing opportunity to get in touch with investment forums and to expand her knowledge. ‘The programme is providing us with excellent tools to speed up our business”, she stated.

Within the sports sector, all the way from Asturias, Javier Gómez is participating. He is a co- founding member of SPODHA, for whom ‘UCAM HiTech is the core of the vertical in which we operate: sports, health and food; the best platform to learn, improve and be seen’. This aspect is also highlighted by Agustín Argelich, linked to the health-related start-up called TBIOM: ‘it is a programme that is highly focussed on health technologies, so our project is a perfect fit in its approach’.

LifeTech Summit will convene more than two hundred people from the innovative ecosystem.

Within the framework of this programme, more than two hundred people who are related to the innovative ecosystem in the food, health and sports sectors (start-ups, business angels, representatives of investment vehicles, leaders of research groups as well as R&D representatives of companies) will be participating this Thursday -starting at 6pm- and on
