Uelz, one of 100 finalists in the South Summit Madrid 2022

In the first year of Uelz’s life, we have been fortunate to participate in the tenth edition of South Summit 2022, the most important startup meeting in southern Europe. Where, in addition to having a stand, we were finalists in the Fintech & Insurtech category.

An international event with top-level attendees

Over the course of three intense days in Madrid, more than 20,000 attendees, including startups, investors and media from around the world, had the opportunity to attend talks by great speakers to learn about the latest trends in technology, as well as to present their projects in an incomparable entrepreneurial environment. Great opportunities for collaboration and synergies between startups and investors also arose.


Uelz selected for the final

After undergoing several stages of the selection process, Uelz was chosen from more than 3,000 candidates, of which more than 70% were international. By reaching the final stage, held between April 8 and 10 in Madrid, Uelz attended as one of the 100 finalist startups, which means a huge recognition of our product and team.

By sharing the Fintech & Insurtech category with 9 other startups, we were able to compete in the Pitch competition for the first time with our product, all in front of a prestigious audience that congratulated us and gave us essential feedback to continue growing.

Maria Luke (Cofounder and CEO of Uelz) presented on stage our solution as an answer to a problem that affects thousands of companies: the difficulties in implementing different payment methods and how they can be easily integrated and managed with Uelz. If you want to see the full pitch and the round of questions you can do so by watching the following video:

Although our proposal was not selected for the grand final, we are really proud of the work done by the whole team, both during the days of the event and all the previous work that has made it possible for us to achieve these kinds of goals.

The annual South Summit event is a key date to get to know in depth the new trends and sectors that emerge every year and, at the same time, a privileged place to connect with people from all fields and learn about their projects.

With this we have already won! We hope to attend again next year.
