On Friday 9th September the Logistics Tech Accelerator Demo Day was held at the Rocket Space offices in San Francisco.

One of our key objectives through this program, is to bring disruptive tech solutions to our customers, in a real and fast way with an immediate and measurable impact, and this is something that was shown during the event through the real projects that we are carrying out with the selected startups.
During this event, the second edition of this unique programme was officially launched, a program which is bringing to the market solutions to disrupt logistics rules in a fast way. So application process for the second cohort is open from now on.
Xoán Martínez – Kaleido Logistics CEO - It is really satisfying to verify the potential of this new and worldwide reference accelerator model, which allows us to identify and attract talented projects from all over the world, and see how they succeed in solving problems and increasing efficiency in our logistic projects, both internally and externally.
