Conector has just announced the 11 startups that will participate in its third acceleration program. The startups, which don’t have to be physically in Barcelona, will receive help from Conector’s team of mentors, office space and services from companies such as Paypal, Amazon or Microsoft.
The accelerator does not provide capital to the companies in its program. Conector and its mentors take a 5 to 10 per cent equity in each of the participating startups.
These are the 11 startups that just got accepted:
- Chilikids: startup that develops “creative mobile apps” for kids.
- Dineyo: app to discover local stores and get paid when you buy at them.
- EC Managed: SaaS that allows companies and users to provision, deploy and monitor their cloud servers easily.
- Emotion Research Lab: providers of cutting edge technologies in computer vision and artificial intelligence to analyze human behavior.
- Glovo: local delivery service of goods bought in retail stores.
- Hubbl: delivery service of goods, seven days a week.
- Joyners: home sharing service for the elderly.
- Meller: ecommerce for stylish sunglasses.
- Offemily: online store for kids clothing.
- Queryday: mobile app that allows companies to do quick surveys with their customers.
- Taalk: marketplace to learn new languages with the help of students.
As Conector continues to run its general-purpose program in Barcelona, the accelerator is also starting to expand by launching verticals in other Spanish cities, such as Conector Gaming Madrid.
