Fifteen select startup companies from Catalonia will be showcased at TechCrunch’s Disrupt SF 2016. These companies span across several verticals, including, Digital Health, Artificial Intelligence, IoT, Virtual Reality, AgTech and EdTech. Each will be represented by their founders at the Catalonia Pavilion at Disrupt SF from September 12th through 14th. On Thursday September 15th, we will be hosting our DemoDisrupt private event. This will provide a more direct and intimate setting with the fifteen founders. Additionally, it will be an excellent opportunity to engage the leaders and representatives of Catalonia’s innovation and startup ecosystem amid food and drinks after the fifteen companies’elevator pitches.

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia and home of the Mobile World Congress, has a strong and active multidisciplinary entrepreneurial ecosystem – and amongst the core of it are these verticals as mentiond above. Wired UK named Barcelona as 1 of the top 5 innovation hubs in the world and these fifteen companies along with DemoDisrupt will provide a first-hand look at such disruptive innovation.
