Barcelona, 26 January 2015. – 4Years From Now (4YFN), the international event for mobile startups presented by the Mobile World Capital Barcelona and GSMA, expects to double the number of entrepreneurs, startups and investors who participated in the first edition.
With this goal in mind, the organization presentes a lineup that will include the presence of Andrew Creighton, president of VICE Media; Mike Ng, director of Mobile Sales and Operations at Twitter; Mike Curtis, vice-president of Engineering at Airbnb; and Philippe Botteri, a partner at Accel Partners, the fund that invested when Facebook, Dropbox, LinkedIn and Kayak were still getting off the ground.
For the second year, 4YFN will be the last stop of the Imagine Express, a hackathon that will allow 36 dreamers to develop apps on a train that will travel a Barcelona-Paris-London-Barcelona route from 27 February to 1 March. On 2 March the groups will present their demos to 4YFN attendees on the FIWARE Terrace.
