OpenBack Finishes in Top 4 in Web2Day’s Global Challenge 2016

The OpenBack team took part in Web2Day, held in Nantes, France on June 15-17th, 2016. As a participant in the Web2day Global Challenge, OpenBack was 1 of the 50 startups chosen to take part in a full day of pitches and presentations to future investors, new customers and partner companies. Past winners of the Global Challenge include Qwant, Lydia and Aircall.

At the end of the event, OpenBack finished in 4th place and was the last remaining non-French startup.

The team met some great partners, enjoyed our stand with Startup Sesame, got great visibility on the main stage of the Global Challenge and partied with the most exciting startup to come out of France in recent years.
