“Ideas are sold to euro per kilo.” Byetick
Sultán Alubankudi and Sokolidje Esuba demonstrated a great ability to connect with the audience and defend the potential and scalability of their business idea before the auditorium of the Forum Evolution of Burgos. They answered the questions of the jury of the event, composed of representatives of Banco Santander, Indra, Burgos City Council and Tudespensa.com.
However, the winner was the Byetick project, promoted by Rubio Domínguez, an application that allows you to store and manage purchase tickets digitally. It also helps in the simplification of the returns or changes of products, at the same time that it supposes a saving of 70% of the consumption of paper on the part of the commerce. Like WayMarkt with his hammer analogy, he made it clear that entrepreneurship is not about having an idea, but about working on that idea.
