16 digital culture startups and the business incubators Gamebcn and StartingLab will take part in the Ministry of Culture's Catalan Arts stand at 4YFN 2017

The 4th edition of 4YFN (Four Years From Now), which will take place from 27 February to 1 March at the Montjuïc exhibition centre during the Mobile World Congress, will have the participation of 18 startups and two Catalan business incubators. The Ministry of Culture, through the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies (ICEC), will be present for the second time at the trade fair. Its stand, which bears the name of its internationalisation brand—Catalan Arts—will be at the disposal of these Catalan digital culture companies to help publicise them at an international level.

The following Catalan startups will attend 4YFN 2017: Appnormals Team, Barspin Studios, Bebookness, Blowing Minds, Cooncert.com, Digital Tangible, Libelista, Monking Me, Playmoss, Sekg, Tap Tap Tales, Tekstum and Winko Games, who were awarded the Digital Participative Loan, a financing instrument that the Ministry of Culture launched two years ago.

The stand will also host Gamebcn, the video game business incubator which the Ministry of Culture created with Incubio and Caixa Capital Risc, and StartingLab, the UPF's interactive project business incubator, which the Ministry of Culture supports. Playtheatres, the winning project from the last edition of the BCD's Design Ideas Market, will also be there.

During the event, specialists from the ICEC's Digital Culture, Markets and Business Development areas will be holding meetings, presenting the Ministry of Culture's support policies and financing instruments for creative companies, and working as conduits between international professionals and Catalan startups.

4YFN, a celebration of innovation

4YFN came into being four years ago through the Mobile World Congress. It is a space in which innovation flourishes and technological creativity is palpable, and where you find companies that in a few years will be world leaders in the digital industry. This year's edition covers 18,000 m2 with over 600 exhibitors, as well as talks and networking actions with investors. Twenty thousand professional visitors are expected to attend.
