4YFN is the startup event of the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, MWC events, supporting start-ups, investors and companies to connect and launch new business ventures together.

Last 2019 edition brought together 23,000 attendees, 760 exhibitors and sponsors, including 670 startups, and 950 investors. The program counted with +160 hours of content and 300+ startup pitches as well as 24 hours of bespoke networking alternatives.


After last year's event was cancelled due to Covid-19, 4YFN and the Mobile World Congress (MWC) return from 28 June to 1 July 2021 at Fira Gran Via (Barcelona). For the first time, both events will take place simultaneously in the same space on the same days, maximizing connections and interaction among startups, investors and international technology companies.
