We start the year with 25 new projects related to Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain, Smart Cities, Smart Grids, Smart Clothing, Fintech, IoT, Edge Computing, fog Computing, etc. This is a promising year and thanks to the numerous businesses that believe in us, we have managed to promote the group, triple our financing and the number of BISITE members.

In 2019 our group will go beyond 100 contracts and I am sure that the number of projects will increase significantly as well as the financing for their development!! In this blog post I would like to express my gratefulness for your support and help in overcoming all the challenges we’ve faced so far.

I feel very lucky to be surrounded by clever, intelligent and hardworking people, who are much younger than I am and from whom I learn something every single day!! With so much talent on board and financing that is waiting for good ideas, I’m sure we can make our group achieve international recognition. We have everything that we need to get ahead, even of the best ones!!
