It was a close call after the cancelations of both the Mobile World Congress and the 4YFN Conference, but we managed to bring a bunch of brilliant minds together in Barcelona for the latest edition of Mobile Sunday.

Thanks to a last-minute helping hand from Venturelab, the organisation that supports Swiss entrepreneurs in building thriving global businesses, we were able to not only keep the event going but make it a real success as the opener for the #TechSpiritBarcelona week (itself a successful movement with more than 15,000 registrations).

Featuring fantastic speakers such as De Kai, Cecilia Tham and the wonderful moderation work by the likes of Cathy White and Oisin Lunny, Mobile Sunday was also the place to get to know seven of Switzerland's most promising startups.

Kudos to the founders for pitching across two panels, after a long day of sailing and investor pitching sessions. The startups were: CREAL, decentriq, ecoRobotix, Exeon Analytics, iniVation, Kido Dynamics and Synthara. Venturelab itself is supported by Vischer, Swisscom, Huawei and Switzerland Global Enterprise.

From us, also a major gracias to Ariane (for organising things on the ground), BCN Events Planet for the photos and Estrella Damm for once again hosting us in such a beautiful venue.
