Catenda is the only Norwegian startup at The Next Web
Catenda has been selected as the only Norwegian startup to participate at the grand technology festival The Next Web (TNW) in Amsterdam 26-27 May 2016.The Next Web attracts more than 10 000 participants and over 3000 companies from around the world. This year´s festival is the 11th in a row. It gathers the world´s technology leaders, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, providing a meeting place to initiate new collaborations and together bring the global technology development further into the future.
– We get to meet investors and technology leaders, and demonstrate how building processes can become much more efficient, by eliminating errors virtually, not on-site. Being selected as the only Norwegian startup energizes the entire team. Our strength is that our product, Bimsync®, has been tested in the field for some time. We hope that makes us stand out from other startups we will be meeting in Amsterdam, says Håvard Bell, CEO of Catenda.
When you take part as a startup at TNW, you get to pitch your product to around 200 investors. Then they select who they want to get to know better. The pitching process continues, and towards the end of the festival, the startups with the best reviews get to present themselves on the main stage in front of all the participants.
Bimsync® is a collaboration tool for virtual design and construction, a cloud based platform that also includes an open API developed by Catenda. Bimsync® reduces costs and risks because errors are discovered and fixed virtually before ground is broken.
