Startup Garden 2017

Startup Garden 2017

Sónar+D is an international congress, organized in conjunction with Sonar electronic music festival, that explores how creativity is changing our present and imagining new futures, in collaboration with researchers, innovators and business leaders. Since 2013, this meeting gathers in Barcelona leading artists, creative technologists, musicians, filmmakers, designers, thinkers, scientists, entrepreneurs, makers and hackers to participate in a carefully commissioned program with the aim at inspiration and networking.

This 6th edition will cover 5 key topics aimed at imagining the future, while asking: what are the new creative and technological territories that remain unexplored? And who are the people leading these initiatives. One of this topic is about the Future of Space Exploration: Exoplanets, nanosatellites and a vision of the future in 10,000 years from now. This theme will be covered by "Makers", artists and scientists, democratizing the conquest of space, with guests and speakers from NASA, MIT Media
Lab or SETI.

The stand out activities from this year's program include a workshop on how to build nanosatelites; The Glass Room Experience, an installation that shows the dark side of the technology we use day to day; as well as an opportunity to meet the creators investigating how art can exist in space, creating instruments designed to be played in zero gravity.

Vaonis will be attending specifically the Startup Garden area, dedicated to the entrepreneurial ecosystem, the chosen way, more and more, to channel innovation for large companies as well as for creatives, technologists and entrepreneurs. The Startup Garden will promote more than 25 selected startups presenting their new technology to change the future.
Meet the team (founder, technical director and marketing manager) and discover Stellina smart telescope during this event celebrating music, creativity and technology.
