The sixth edition of ResetWeekend Castellón was held this weekend and has been highlighted for the number of ideas presented, and because almost half those attending presented an idea. In all, there were 20 possible projects promoted by young entrepreneurs. This year, the mean age of the participants was younger than it was in previous years as a high percentage of those who registered were 20-24 years of age.

Carla Tomas, the co-organiser of this event, stated that the numbers evidence the interest that youths show in entrepreneuring, when the option that most had until quite recently was to work as self-employed or to sit public entrance exams.

Two ideas were selected from among the 20 presented in this edition, which centred on gamification; that is, introducing game mechanics into areas like education or marketing, and to also motivate groups of people. During the whole weekend, work was done on both projects to confer them a feasible work plan, a successful marketing strategy and the digital platforms they needed to work were programmed. Here is more information about the winning projects:

Guzmán Bermejo, a UJI student, won with his idea TrupOnTur. This is an application which employs augmented reality applied to tourism. The aim of this game is to promote tourism in towns and cities supported by augmented reality by means of mobile applications or Google Glasses.

Diego Gargallo, born in Castellón and a UJI researcher, won with his Startup Fantasy project, a business idea based on a game for entrepreneurs, in which players gain skills and points the more training they acquire in certain aspects required for any entrepreneur.

ResetWeekend has been made possible thanks to the Castellón City Council. This event has also been supported by the Castellón Council Offices, CEEI of Castellón, the Transport City Business Centre and espaitec.
