4YFN23 DAY 2: The most innovative startup in Catalonia

28 February 2023 4YFN

Full stands and aisles, informal meetings on stools, sofas and beanbags, and plenty of content on sectors as heterogeneous as e-commerce, the marine economy or health, but all sharing an interest in technology. The second day of 4YFN 2023 was buzzing with energy, so we recap some of the highlights below.


Premis EmprènXXI

Sycai Medical has won the award for the most innovative startup in Catalonia at the EmprènXXI awards, promoted by Caixabank through DayOne and the support of Tech Barcelona, ACCIÓ, Barcelona Activa and ENISA. The startup has developed a medical assistant that helps radiologists detect cystic lesions in the pancreas, thanks to artificial intelligence that facilitates diagnosis and predicts the likelihood that these lesions are malignant. Tech Barcelona also congratulates Nuwe, Rever, Haddock, Nimble Diagnostics and SolarMente as award finalists.
