On April 11 and 12 we had the pleasure of participating in the Foro Ser Emprendedor (Being An Entrepreneur Forum), organized in the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos in Málaga for the sixth time.
It was a great opportunity for us, not only because it allowed us to meet different companies and their projects, but also helped us to exchange opinions with a variety of different people.
At the event you were able to have a look at different stands, each one dedicated to a business or company, and discover business opportunities in emerging sectors.
There were not only entrepreneurs present, but also investors who can help finance projects; the forum brought together entrepreneurs, startups, associations, institutions, investors and businessmen from all over Spain.
There were also talks, presentations and workshops for all sorts of entrepreneurs; from those who have the initiative but don’t have a defined project yet, to those that already started but need reorientation. Presentations were about different topics like “How do create a successful video game company?”, “E-Commerce, a great opportunity”, “How to prepare my project for an investment forum?”, “Importance and strategy of Digital Marketing” and “Instruments for internationalization”, to name just a few, so everybody could be sure to find something that was relevant to their business and interests.
We have spoken to a bunch of different companies during this event; you can visit our Facebook page to find out which ones they are.
One company we spoke to was A bonfire of souls, a software development company from Málaga. Aside from developing games and apps, they also focus on developing new interactive technologies. We had the chance to test out their VR game demo, and we had a blast.
These interactive things were one of our favorite things about the different stands and the event.
Personally, we had a great time at the forum. We made a lot of new contacts and learned a lot that will help us in the future development of our company. These kind of events are absolutely important, especially for young businesses like ours, so we are really glad to have one right here in Málaga.
