Between the 15th and 17th of April, Madrid was the stage for the first CloudCatalyst Bootcamp. Technology Entrepreneurs were invited to participate in this 3 day event, held in the Madrid Science Park, with the objective of helping startups in their market definition and strategy design based on cloud solutions.

The event was based on a mentor/ team dynamics, counting with the presence of mentors from the CloudCatalyst Consortium that shared their insights and knowledge about Cloud trends, technologies and business models, helping startups on the establishment of a successful business strategy.

The Madrid Bootcamp counted with the presence of participant teams from different business areas such as MultiDub – a direct movie dubbing service –, Gloshh – a fashion social media network with an integrated marketplace platform –, or a cultural platform to be used while waiting for restaurant service. During the event, CloudCatalyst mentor, Tomaz Frelih was also invited to participate in Tetuan Valley Startup School Spring edition, counting with more than 40 people eager to launch their innovative ideas.

The Bootcamp also had the participation of the EU Projects EU-XCEL, StartupScaleup, and Welcome, and was supported by EuroCloud España, Bisite Accelerator, Tetuan Valley and Startup Spain.

The topics discussed during the 3 days ranged from business modelling and lean strategy to the art of storytelling and pitching, but the topic that generated more buzz was related to customer discovery and profiling. Entrepreneurs were attracted to the search for the ideal customer, and keen on getting to know more on the CloudCatalyst tools presented for their market understanding and their product direction towards the customer needs.

CloudCatalyst is committed to help Start-Ups and SME’s in becoming successful on the Cloud Computing universe, and the bootcamps are a perfect example of that. Providing the participants with a solid framework to study the companies’ ideas and their next steps. We still have two more Bootcamps for you to participate, stay tuned for the next dates!
