6th edition of Pont Up Store – Applications now open

From 19 to 21 September, a new edition of the Pont Up Store will be held in the city of Pontevedra. The deadline for submission of applications to participate in what is already considered the most important entrepreneurship meeting in Galicia will be open until July 7.

As in previous editions, entrepreneurship projects may submit their application for one or more of the three types of participation: to have one of the 33 free stands; to organize demonstration activities within the program; or to participate in the Puntazo Express, in which the participants will have the opportunity to explain their proposals to representatives of important Galician companies, which on this occasion will be EDISA, Hifas da Terra, Roi Scroll and Casa Grande de Xanceda.

In this sixth edition, which will be developed under the slogan “The impulse of brave people”, there will be, among other novelties, a space for senior entrepreneurship, dedicated to projects led by people who, although they have already finished their work cycle, remain active and launch new challenges. In addition, the video game industry, which already had a significant presence in the last edition, will gain a greater prominence, with more exhibitions, workshops, talks, etc., and with the presentation of the Hobbypont 2019 by Hobbycon event.

In the Social and Creative Economy Space, various activities will be developed within the framework of the INTERREG VANA-LACES project, such as a ‘tasting’ of ideas, a co-creation mural based on an economy with social and responsible values, or a meeting of cultural and creative companies that work from formulas of social entrepreneurship. In addition, the annual meetings of different entities of the entrepreneurial ecosystem such as Espazocoop, A Redeira, AJE Galicia or Mujeres Atlánticas will be held.
