The Mobile Weekend is an original event, and the first of its class in Barcelona, created by the founders of Capptains Mobile Venture Builder, Patricio Hunt and Pablo Pérez. The event will take place at Ironhack facilities in Barcelona’s [email protected] district, and is designed based on the experience of the founders after attending many of these events, as participants, mentors, speakers and judges.

Capptains analyzes markets, conceives solutions, develops and launches mobile apps. After a period of several months validating the ideas, pivoting and gaining market traction, only those apps with true potential may continue forward as an spin-off from the venture builder.

Capptains follows a very rigorous methodology to develop new businesses; an approach that its founders believe will create enormous value. The company has already launched two successful Apps, one with more than 1.5M organic downloads and another one that is being adopted by some of the best companies in its target industry. Also, the team has already developed a third App to be launched in January 2017 and is in the process of starting the development of its fourth MVP.

The 3 most talented and committed individuals, irrespective of their belonging to any of the original event teams, will become part of a ‘Dream Team’. This Dream Team will opt to create and launch a business within Capptains Venture Builder following its business model and methodologies. We will provide up to 100.000€ in incubation services, office space, MVP Development, mentorship, and initial funding.

Also, the best 3 teams will receive a trophy recognizing its participation in the event and excusive benefits such as free-services and scholarships to help launch their idea into the market.
