CloudGuide has returned home after taking part of the Immersion Program of Spain Tech Center (STC) that hosted for two weeks ten Spanish technology startup companies in order to make contact with capitalist investors in addition to legal and financial advisers.

The ten participating startup companies belong or are linked to the technology sector, in particular, to applications development, open source tools, Big Data, online education platforms and solutions for revenue management, among others.

During two intense weeks they have been in the Californian city using the services of Spain Tech Center, which provides support to Spanish technology companies in their process to internationalization and establishment on the American market. The Spanish entrepreneurs participated in 35 workshops which counted with sessions about business communication, banking and credit in the United States, Venture Capital in emerging markets, international marketing strategies and customer experience. Besides assisting these workshops, participants visited the headquarters of Google, Plug and Play, GSV Labs and Evenbrite, as well as Stanford University.

After the experience, participants come back to Spain with new knowledge and perspectives to apply in their companies.
