This multidisciplinary and opportunity-generating event, which will bring together startups, companies, investors and public entities with civil society, will allow Valencian entrepreneurial projects to be showcased to society.

The VLC Startup Market aims to make Valencians feel proud of their local talent, which is internationally recognised but which must also be valued at a local level.
