GET READY TO SEE INDUSTRY AS NEVER SEEN BEFORE!

This 2019 IQS Tech Factory brings you, a new edition of IQS Tech Fest: The First Festival of Industrial Startups in Europe, that will take place on January 24 at the Antiga Fábrica Estrella Damm in Barcelona.

In this new edition of the festival we pay tribute to one of the most important steps of Humanity - the arrival of first man to the moon 50 years ago-a step that opened the way to Moonshot Thinking: a revolutionary way of thinking that made possible the creation of projects, technologies and innovations that seemed impossible to achieve.

IQS Tech Fest will turn the Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm into the cradle of industrial entrepreneurship, presenting the new generation of Moonshot Innovators: 40 Industrial Startups that are solving the daily challenges of society, that nobody had been able to solve until now.
