The fourth Cuatrecasas Acelera program held its first boot camp with the six selected startups over October 1 and 2. The first day of this training program took place at the Cuatrecasas Madrid office and the second day at South Summit, the largest startup conference in Spain.

During the two-day boot camp, the six startups were able to meet the mentors who will accompany them throughout the program. They also participated in a simulation session on negotiating with investors given by Diana Rivera, a partner in the firm’s Corporate and Commercial Practice, and a session on intellectual property by Cuatrecasas associate, Jean-Yves Teindas.

Over a four-month accelerator period, the selected startups will have the legal, business and technological support they require, through group and individual sessions with experts from Cuatrecasas, Telefónica Open Future, Netmentora, MicroBank and Alastria, as well as access to clients and financing.

There will be a boot camp next week for the two startups selected for the Fast Track program, with whom Cuatrecasas has already defined the use case and pilot project they will develop over the four months. The projects are doDOC and Closd, two legaltech solutions that will enable lawyers to increase efficiency.

The program will end in February with a Demo Day when the entrepreneurs can present their projects to investors and key players in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
