Globalization and the digital revolution oblige companies to redesign their strategy and adapt very quickly, but culture (people) remains the greatest barrier of change. The only known solution is a top- down approach based in change leadership seminars which only big companies can afford… and yet results are expensive, slow and inefficient.
DLP proposes a radically different solution- virtual training in emotional intelligence courses based in videos to all employees and focused in behavioral change: which can dramatically accelerate the cultural change needed- either by some areas o by the whole company.
DLP courses can be delivered through mobile devices, PC and tablets, via internet connection, solving the economic and time-consuming problem that comes from travelling and assisting to seminars.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 285 million people are visually impaired, 28 million in Europe. Almost 3% of the population. Any of us could be blind one day. With problems such as dependency, disorientation or fear of unfamiliar places. Lazzus represents the development of technology in their favor.
GPS current solutions are based on taking the person from point A to point B, leaving in between an empty space, a darkness that makes these people do not dare to really live your city, they do not dare to get out their route and find new spaces. With Lazzus we give light to this darkness, and on the way from A to B they can know if there are a bakery, zebra crossings, stairs, changing street …
Lazzus is an application that helps visually impaired people to know what there are where they point with their mobile device, is like a flashlight to blind people. Allowing them to live unthinkable experiences for them, expand their autonomy and reduce its dependence.
Lazzus is available on Android and iOS. We use mobile GPS information, and compass to generate a field of artificial vision that transmits auditory information when a landmark enters in the field of view. To get this points of interests, we have our own system capable of generating points of interest anywhere in the world within hours.
Getting our information of Open Street Maps and Google (They has currently the most reliable and latest information on maps). As an example of its scalability, we were able to open Mexico in just one day.
Thanks to this, Lazzus is now available in the UK, Spain, Mexico, Chile and Portugal, with users in all these countries.
We have two types of customers. On the one hand the end user, the visually impaired person. Almost 3% of the European population is visually impaired, and grows ever wider as it is a disease linked to age, where they are not only the totally blind, but also people with very low vision due to serious illnesses such as glaucoma or retinitis pigmentosa, or common diseases that in certain states become severe as cataracts.
On the other hand we have as clients municipalities, foundations and institutions, to which we open a direct communication channel with its visually impaired citizens and we also allow them to make important CSR campaigns
Once Lazzus has been validated by users, by the ONCE and institutions such as Vodafone or Google, the time of mass marketing has come, our efforts are now focused on the dissemination of Lazzus, It is important that people know about it.
As for development, one of the major demands of our users is to use Lazzus without carrying the phone in their hand, so we have designed a device, a wearable, which you put on your wrist, chest or glasses, and indicates you what there are where you point in a much more natural. Nowadays we already have a functional beta, and we want to reach a commercial version by the end of 2016.
LIFMEC is specialized in the design, development and commercialization of handling machinery for the assistance of workers in processes tasks that involve heavy loads. The company is a spin-off from Intelmec Ingeniería, focused on designing custom-made machines for industrial clients since more than 10 years.
Despite the current development of the industry 4.0, many industrial processes still involve manual stages. This leads to inefficiency in the process, as well as to very harmful effects on the health of workers. LIFMEC aims to solve both problems through the introduction of its handling machines in the process.
LIFMEC starts its activity with a range of handling machines for the assistance in the manufacturing of sofas. Our handler helps the upholsterer by placing the wooden structure of the sofa at the most appropriate position. Very relevant advantages are provided: reduction of upholstery time (30-40%), better production monitoring, elimination of painful positions, and no damage in the product by subsequent manipulations.
LIFMEC is currently looking for external funding of €75,000, which will be used on sales and marketing activities, as it is the presentation of the product at Interzum2017 fair.
LIFMEC future will be focused on the development of new machinery for other applications in positioning and handling of heavy objects (e.g.: seats of aircraft, engines, people, etc.)
The digital content market will generate around $220b worldwide in 2017. However, the failure rate in product development in this sector is close to 50% and 20% among the rest are never profitable. In 48% of the cases, the reason is due to production, design or development costs. Lurtis Rules reduces the modelling costs in a digital production to 1/3rd, making profitable projects in film, animation, or videogames.
Our tools are offered as cloud services accessible either as pay‐per‐use or under monthly subscriptions, they combine the freedom in the design (only possible when subcontracting independent modellers) with the cost and time effectiveness of purchasing pre‐existing models from a digital marketplace (but with a complete authoring and customization of the desired contents).
Lurtis Rules tools and services allow designers to produce complete 3D scenarios in few minutes spending just
£15 for the equivalent of one week of modeller time and £2000. The business model is cloud‐based with a 96% profit margin, large scalability, and profitable when reaching 2% of the effective market.

At Ludo Studios, we develop sports-managers social video games and our goal is to become leaders in this sector of the market.
In order to know what direction our games had to take, before starting this project we asked ourselves one question: ¨why do gamers play nowadays?¨ The response is something as simple as they´re searching for interactive social games and competition.
There exist so many types of games that are doing this and in reality doing it well and have maximized these two user search preferences, like MMORPGs o ESports with World of Warcraft and League of Legends as two principal examples.
On the contrary, sports manager games are only focused on strengthening the competition side, and leaving the social interaction side alone completely.
This is the main reason why we are developing the most social sports manager game on the market: soccer feeling, where 100% of the players and trainers are controlled by real users, while in traditional sports manager games only 8% is. In this way, all users interact with each other as if it they were in real life. In addition, we want to be the first to give the opportunity for users to combine physical exercise with the evolution of their virtual avatars.
Currently, we count more than 100,000 registered between Spain and Latin America with satisfactory retention, traction, and more recently monetization. We are in search of a €200,000 investment for marketing in order to take advantage of the scalability of the project and be able to strengthen and open new markets. Also, we believe we´ve reached a point in development in which we can expand to mobile devices.
LA POSADA FLAMENCA
This Cultural Association was born with the purpose of creating a meeting place, information and coexistence between students, amateurs and professionals, and also to the public interested in the flamenco’s ambiance and the Andalusian culture, an open space where you can feel and live it closely. It will not be an academy nor a “tablao” (scenario), but a meeting place, where should prevail the spontaneity and authenticity.
Our mission is to be a non-profit organization that contributes to social development through multicultural union, exchange and the flamenco art, its music and poetry, promote projects and new forms of social-educational commitment to different needs. A bridge between Mexico and Andalusia to promote cooperative relations in the educational and artistic field of flamenco art, providing scholarships to students of low resources and with great skills for flamenco in any of its aspects: singing, dancing, playing guitar or to perform their studies in Andalusia.
Activities to be performed in the spaces:
A) To inform and advise in a personalized way, to connect according to the individual interests, the people who wish to learn flamenco with the masters, as well as being a center of information of all the flamenco activities that take place in our surroundings.

The Grab: “LET’S GET TOGETHER, BY THE FEELING OF SHARING THE SAME ART”
LOVE AND CHILD
Love and Child is a company focused on infants. In actuality, we commercialize infant fashion, schoolchildren materials, and gifts; however, we are developing new product lines related to infant literature and the audiovisual world. Our mission is to create products capable of generating an emotional link between adults and children, that attract customers by their fresh and fun designs, always in line with this driving thread that represents the main representatives of the brand, Lua and Marcos.
Technology – Product/Service Soulutions
Our products don´t require the use of intensive technology. Our ¨solutions¨ or our differentiation radiates from the designs and messages that we try to transmit with all our products.
Distribution and Marketing
Distribution – all of our merchandise is managed through one of our warehouses located in Guadalajara (neutral partner), that offers us a very competitive national flat rate shipping, and good prices passed to the majority. In both cases we have a logistical cost clearly inferior to the cost of the market that companies, like SEUR, TNT, or Envialia, offer.
Marketing – our priority, in order to become public, is to locate our product in stores (online as well as offline) of franchises like El Corte Ingles, FNAC, Carlin, etc. Thanks to our effort and commercial abilities, we are being able to reach brand diffusion although it isn´t obvious yet as a new company. Online, we are making ads for reputable blogs, we are adding content to our social networks, and are working in depth the SEO. Some of our production is assigned to some of the main stores in our network, like Amazon, Privalia, Mamuki, etc. We haven´t gotten an inversion in SEM, to this day, considering that we consider the brand not sufficiently visible for it and that there exists a lot of competition in the areas in which you search for our clothing. Confronting successfully the bidding system of Google would require a large investment, that at the present time, we prefer to go towards commercial action in sales points.
