Last weekend, Nexto team participated in the Booking.com Booster Lab event that took place in sunny Barcelona. The compact weekend programme is dedicated to giving early-stage startups the insights, tools and skills they need to grow and make a social impact.
It was an opportunity to connect and learn from the Booking.com experts from various fields. Under their supervision we produced a scaling roadmap for the upcoming year and learned how to set and measure the social impact our company is having. As the end of the programme, 11 participating startups pitched their products and companies to a jury of Booking.com judges for a chance to win grants up to 25,000€.
We’re proud to announce our pitch of Nexto was very well received and the jury awarded us with the highest grant of €25,000. We consider the reward as an acknowledgement that our product is going in the right direction and a validation of our mission to make heritage storytelling more exciting. We’re looking forward to the next 6 months in which we’ll be able to work with Booking.com mentors to refine our business model and scale our business.
We would like to thank the Booking.com and Booking Cares teams for putting together a wonderful, thought provoking weekend. We’d also like to congratulate to all participating teams. It was a pleasure meeting them all.
