The first edition of BBVA Open Talent that took place in the first months had such a good reception that BBVA presents now the second round of this program that provides help for entrepreneurs. The first edition added up to 375 projects and registered 140.000 votes from the community. Pidecita was finally the winner of the contest. We expect to surpass that numbers and to do so we are going to extend significantly the reach and consequently the support to the projects presented by entrepreneurs.

This second edition of BBVA Open Talent will be international and will have as much as three investments up to 100.000 euros in the projects selected by the community and the committee of BBVA investments. One of the new features is the introduction of a price for the project with more popular support from the community. The reward will be economic support to become the reporter of Open Talent in one of the most renowned events about entrepreneurship in USA.
