Mobile World Congress 2018

Barcelona is the Mobile World Capital, where the biggest congress run by the GSM, known as Mobile World Congress (MWC) is held every year. The MWC includes events such as the Four Years From Now (4YFN), which provides a working ground where startups, investors and key figures of the Industry can share ideals, form partnerships and evolve together. The startup culture has had a major impact on the economic and social aspects of our lives. Such events play a role on how we connect, the networking structure it provides is valuable, and allows us to be part of a small community, yet in a global manner.
