A startup’s forth birthday is widely regarded as its most important. Four years from inception, 44% of startups will have failed. For the others, it is this timeline which proves the concept and therefore the future of the business.
It turns out that 2015 in Barcelona was a magical moment in the city’s startup folklore. It has been four years since soaring scaleups TravelPerk, Badi, Glovo and 21Buttons were conceived and each is showing incredible progress.
And besides provable business models, huge ambition and immensely talented leadership – what do these leading lights of the Barcelona startup community have in common? They have all been exhibitors at 4 Years from Now!
These four startups reaching the four year milestone are steaming ahead and proving the four year mantra that 4YFN lives by. They are incredible examples of what success over a four year period can look like. Just one question remains for these stars of the Barcelona ecosystem – where will they be in another four years from now?
Our congratulations again to these amazing scaleups. Well done on your success so far, long may it continue and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
