FUTURE IS HAPPENING IN IQS TECH FEST

FUTURE IS HAPPENING IN
IQS TECH FEST

In 2016 IQS Tech Fair landed in Barcelona, as a small fair dedicated to industrial startups held at the IQS University. Exceeding all expectations, the event gathered more than 400 attendees on a cold winter evening. Something was changing in the ecosystem.

Just over a year later, IQS Tech Fair was transformed into IQS Tech Fest: the first industrial startups festival in Europe. With more than 1,200 attendees, its first edition gave visibility to disruptive ventures and connected entrepreneurs with investors and key industry leaders. The largest celebration of industrial entrepreneurship in Spain was born.

In 2019 we aim to consolidate IQS Tech Fest as the leading industrial startup event in Europe.

PASSION
FOR CHANGE

IQS Tech Fest is the largest event organized by IQS Tech Factory, the center of entrepreneurship at IQS University and the first Industrial accelerator in Spain. What started as a small fair organized by a small team of people with the passion of giving voice to a new type of entrepreneurship, has become a great celebration that is growing year over year.

In this new edition, we keep working on making possible the impossible. This year, we have partnered with Barter, a great team of professionals that will help us build and transmit all the passion that lies behind one of the our most special events.

INDUSTRY'S
PLACE TO BE

IQS Tech Fest brings in the same space the technologies of the most advanced industrial startups in the ecosystem. Every January, the future is built at Antiga Fàbrica Damm Barcelona, that brings together the most powerful entrepreneurs and technologies from the existing ecosystem.

THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE

A stage and innumerable stories of passion to build a better future. There is no better way to understand the future than listening to all those entrepreneurs who broke all schemes by their best efforts. Experts such as Neil Harbisson, the world’s first cyborg, Stephen Dunne, General Manager at Neuroelectrics, Lynette Kucsma, CMO at Natural Machines, or Alfons Cornella, one of the leading experts in innovation in Spain, left their trace at our festival last year.
