Valladolid, Spain, February, 2022 – As part of mlean commitment to entrepreneurship, the company participated in the CYL-Hub launch event that took place on Valladolid on February the 4th.
CYL-HUB is an innovation and technological entrepreneurship hub which has received 1.3 million euros from the regional government (Junta de Castilla y León). This amount is part of the European Union program Next Generation. This project is designed to stimulate and promote innovation and technological entrepreneurship to support self-employed, startups, and innovative SMEs from the region.
This event was an opportunity for large corporations, institutions, venture capital firms, SMEs and startups to talk about challenges in Castilla y León and how to foster collaboration to position the region in the best competitive place.
All the stakeholders had the opportunity to speak up during the event at different round tables. Roberto Delgado, CEO of mlean participated in the last round table entitled “Startups and Innovative SME from Castilla y Leon”.
“We are pleased to be part of this event as a local scaleup company based in Valladolid,” Delgado said. The participants talked about their experiences and provide pieces of advice for novel entrepreneurs. “You must have your idea validated before getting investments because until your idea has not been adopted by your clients, it means your product is not ready,” added Roberto Delgado, CEO of mlean.
During the sessions the different participants discussed about how startups must be supported by institutions. “We have made ourselves where we are today with a lot of effort, passion and our people, that is everything. But a startup cannot be treated in the same way as a mature business.” Roberto Delgado ended.
