This year’s edition of the NOAH Conference will be held in Zurich where Barcelona & Partners will attend. The NOAH Conference regularly draws in top-tier speakers, executives from scaleups and large corporates as well as leading investors, all of whom come together to foster digital ventures, new partnerships and the exchange of ideas. Many investors, whether institutional or informal, are looking for the next unicorn through the platform, as the conference has a long-standing tradition as a launching pad for many success stories. In fact, the event has hosted 60% of European unicorns. Barcelona & Partners will be present to take full advantage of this unique gathering, which includes a high percentage of decision makers across the board, as part of the agency’s quest to attract innovation and economic growth to Barcelona.
The NOAH conference boasts both a physical format as well as a highly developed digital platform and app based on AI, which maximises the networking opportunities. The event’s sessions and activities will allow Barcelona & Partners to participate in topical dialogue around the European digital ecosystem, while networking with leading players. Large corporates will also be in attendance such as Google, Amazon and Facebook, as well as key investors.
The event advocates for collaboration between peers and is bringing together a wide variety of attendees. In the past decade, it has provided numerous startups with the platform to attract significant funding from angels and VCs, reaching €3.2bn. A notable example being Barcelona-based Glovo which raked in €445m. As for scaleups, the event presents the unique opportunity to broaden knowledge on tackling operational challenges by favouring the meeting of industry peers. Established companies will equally rub shoulders with large corporates and a 1200-strong range of investors which includes angel investors, informal and corporate VCs, buyout funds, family offices, and debt providers. This should provide the backdrop for exciting partnerships and developments.
This distinctive panorama of attendees will surely provide a compelling setting for Barcelona & Partners to promote the agency’s mission to boost the city as an innovation hub.
