BBVA Open Talent Encourages International Participation In Its Fifth Annual Competition For Entrepreneurs

Phase 3 ( June 4). Selection of finalists: During this phase all the projects will be assessed and the BBVA Open Talent panel will select 20 finalists.

Phase 4 (end of June).  Presentation to the judges and announcement of winners: BBVA will help the 20 finalists prepare for the last presentation, which this year will take place in Buenos Aires during the Red Innova event.

After the projects have been presented to the public, the judges will decide the winners. Their names will be announced at a ceremony, which will be presided by Gustavo Vinacua, the director of BBVA's Innovation Center.


The two €100,000 prizes in the competition will take the form of business collaboration or share capital injection in the start-up entity. The purpose of this is to create a link between BBVA and the winners.

"Most voted in BBVA Open Talent 2013"

This year Open Talent is introducing a new reward for the project that achieves the greatest support in the on-line voting.

Apart from a seal of approval for "Most voted in BBVA Open Talent 2013," the winner will be invited to the next Emtech Spain, with two tickets for the conference program organized by MIT and invitations to participate in the Investment Forum.

The 20 finalists will receive a seal that identifies them as "Finalist in BBVA Open Talent 2013."

All developments related to the competition can be followed live through the official Twitter account @Opentalent2013 with hashtag: #BBVAOpentalent.
