Innovation, technology and entrepreneurship at Startup Olé 2022

On this occasion, the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones de Castilla y León will be the main stage of the event and the AIR Institute and BISITE’s stand will be located there. We will show different projects, related to the electronics area, as well as our training offer in new technologies and the free courses that are being developed on the e4you platform.

On the other hand, the event will serve as a venue for some activities framed in the Centr@Tec Programme, among them: the IoT Innovation Seminar on processes and design of products and services and the Digital Transformation Workshop: New Challenges in Technology and Cybersecurity for Organisations on 5 and 6 September, respectively. These conferences are organised by the Institute for Business Competitiveness of Castilla y León (ICE) in collaboration with Air Institute with the aim of connecting and sharing knowledge and experience in technology with SMEs and startups attending Startup Olé.
