Maritime and Blue Logistics Edition: What to expect

Barcelona hosts the 1st World Edition of Startup Weekend focused on the logistics and maritime world, with the support of Google for Entrepreneurs and Techstars bringing together entrepreneurs to solve the major challenges of the sector.

This event will be held during the next weekend of May 17, 18 and 19 at the new facilities of OneCowork. This edition will have the collaboration of different companies and institutions of the logistics sector.

Barcelona, March 15th, 2019.- Encouraging entrepreneurship, disrupting the logistics sector and solving major challenges are the goals that this edition of Startup Weekend Barcelona aims to achieve with its new Maritime & Blue Logistics edition in May 2019.

It is expected to bring together the 100 entrepreneurs of different profiles. Business, Developer, Designers and technicians of the logistics sector with business ideas that revolutionize the logistics sector as we know it today, networking and sharing experiences.

On Friday, May 17th, participants presented their business ideas and then selected among all those that have the best chance of becoming a real company. The objective during the weekend is to work in the business model with countless partners and specialist mentors from the sector to learn, inspire and discover new solutions.

About Techstars Startup Weekend

CHALLENGES IN THE MARITIME SECTOR

CHALLENGE 1 (SC challenge #1): MONITORING OF OCCUPATION IN REAL TIME

How can we improve the traffic management of trucks and the public space of the Port?

Context:

There are different areas within the Port that must be managed according to occupation volumes. One is the “Truck Center”, where the waiting and traffic management of trucks that embark on the ferries is carried out. There is currently a guard who manages access manually and another guard that manages the order of the vehicles, but without interaction with the users / clients. It is intended to know the occupation of the 32 lanes of the waiting area in real time and that this information could be shared with the users / customers.

On the other hand, there are several spaces of public domain that are charged to companies according to degrees of use or occupation. Today, this calculation is done by making an estimate of the space used. We aim to obtain a benefit from the multiple cameras already installed in the port area and through image analysis to estimate the degrees of occupation, while storing the images (pdf and cad).

CHALLENGE 2 (SC challenge #3): USE AND APPLICATIONS OF THE 3D MAP OF THE PORT How do we take advantage of the 3D data that the Port of Barcelona has?

Context: The information available in 3D of the Port of Barcelona has been increased. We look for specific examples and applications to make it profitable, such as environmental modeling, dock movements and dykes, etc.

Until now, measurement and manual reporting systems were being used, and now it is intended to generate automatic data feed from 3D maps (updated annually). Once a year, and together with the capture of the aerial photo of the Port, a LIDAR image of the Port of about 100 million points is obtained, with a density of approximately 6 points per m2, and with precision of + -5 cms.

CHALLENGE 3 (SC challenge #5): AUTOMATIC MEASUREMENT OF WASTE

How do we industrialize the reading of volume and weight of the Port’s waste?

Context: Solid waste delivered by ships to the Port of Barcelona is collected in containers that are managed by the suppliers of the port’s waste collection service for ships. All solid ship waste’s management is billed by volume and not by weight, as is the case with all waste transactions carried out in the field of land between producers, managers and management and treatment plants. This volume measurement introduces a lot of subjectivity in the determination of the actual amount of waste since the measurement is currently provided by the lender and only with the weighing value.

We intend to measure the volume of solid waste delivered by the vessels with an automated and reliable collection of  data and make the information available to the Port Information System.

CHALLENGE 4: ACCESS TO THE PORT’S PREMISES VIA A FACIAL RECOGNITION SYSTEM

How can we easily register facial profiles to control the access to the Port and create a fast (<50seg) and reliable system (>80% for registered profiles)  for facial recognition?

Context: Today, the accreditation center is located inside the port premises, once access control has passed, which means that they access vehicles to the site without being credited.

Each vehicle wanting to access the port with a driver that is not accredited must pass beyond the control. The guard opens the barrier and indicates the driver that he must head to the center of Accreditations, approximately 1km away. 

CHALLENGE 5: TRACKING SYSTEM FOR VEHICLES MOVING WITHIN THE PORT’S PREMISES

How can we track the vehicles that access the Port in order to analyze the performed routes, detect innefficiencies and exploit data?

Context: The Port controls the vehicles through the barriers and checkpoints in the access to the premises (entries and exits), but some terminals are open and there are no current access controls that may provide information of the time taken to acess the terminal.  This information is essential to measure the Port’s operations.

CHALLENGE 6: DETECTING IF A TRUCK IS EMPTY THROUGH VISUAL RECOGNITION WHEN LEAVING THE PORT’S PREMISES

How can we detect if a truck is empty without having to open the truck to perform an inspection?

Context: Today, when a truck is leaving the Port’s premises and declares that there is no cargo inside, a guard physically inspects the truck to check if it’s indeed empty, creating a bottleneck in the exit point. We’re also looking for a way to avoid additional disruptions of traffic when finding a “mis-declared” truck (loaded with cargo when stating that is empty)

CHALLENGE 7: DYNAMIC LOGISTICS INSURANCE

How can we provide dynamic insurance policies according to cargoes and route’s particularities?

Context: Today most (and I’d dare to say all) of the exporters and importers hold generic insurance policies, stating that you’ll pay a percentage of the value of cargo as insurance, no matter the commodity, packaging conditions and they tend to aggregate lots of countries in the same pricing group without distinguishing the country’s index risk. Nowadays you may compare between a hundred companies for your car or home insurance, or you get amazing discounts for being a good driver, but dynamic insurance pricing hasn’t yet reach the logistics industry!

CHALLENGE 8: DIGITIZE AND DISRUPT THE LETTER OF CREDIT BUREAUCRATIC PROCESS

How can we disrupt the way of handling the letter of credit between the parties involved?

Context: Step-by-step current process: Buyer and seller agree to conduct business. Buyer applies to his bank for a letter of credit in favor of the seller. Buyer’s bank approves the credit risk of the buyer, issues and forwards the credit to its correspondent bank (advising or confirming).

The credit document reaches the seller in a poorly attractive format with difficult-to-understand conditions which must be perfectly matched in order to avoid penalties and delays in payment to the Seller. The Carrier also gets involved as the Bill of Lading must exactly state the words mentioned in the Letter of Credit. The Bill of Lading is issued by the carrier in draft, checked by the Seller, passed down to the Bank, approved or requested to amend and then back again to the Seller who communicates the approval or requested amendments to the Carrier. Then Seller needs to make sure to provide all the documents in a “defined by the letter of credit” amount of copies, in original, to the Bank.

CHALLENGE 9: DIGITISE THE SPOT REQUEST FOR QUOTATION PROCESS

How can we disrupt the spot quotation procedures?

Context: There’s always a time when something needs to be shipped ASAP but in a cost reliable way. In those moments, importers and exporters request for quotations to different suppliers via email and compare the proposals in price, mode of transport and transit time to make the smartest choice. This is currently done by comparing manually or in excel. We’re looking to disrupt the way of logistics procurement.

Mindfulness para emprendedores, un regalo para Startup Weekend Burgos… y para la vida

El domingo por la tarde,  y tras un fin de semana de intenso trabajo, los emprendedores de Startup Weekend Burgos deberán presentar sus proyectos ante el jurado. Un momento difícil para algunos, pero para el que tenemos la solución.

¿Sufres de miedo escénico? ¿Te gustaría disfrutar cuando hablas en público? Si participas en Startup Weekend Burgos 2019 tendrás la oportunidad de participar en una sesión de mindfulness para emprendedores con Teresa Peña, para aprender a superar el medio escénico y disfrutar de tus intervenciones en público.

“Del miedo escénico al placer escénico con Mindfulness”  es el título del taller que impartirá esta doctora en Gestión del Conocimiento. profesora Titular en el Área de Organización de Empresas de la Universidad de Burgos e instructora de Mindfulness MBSR por el Instituto esMindfulness de Barcelona.

Mindfulness es un poderoso aliado contra el miedo escénico, te ayuda a darte cuenta de lo que piensas y sientes en cada momento, a conectarte con tus emociones y a aceptarlas. Puedes liberar el miedo y sus efectos de tu cuerpo y de tu mente, sin tener que rechazarlo, ni luchar contra él”, explica Teresa Peña, quien ya participó en la edición de Startup Weekend Burgos 2018 con la sesión “Enamora a tu público”, en la que dio algunas claves para hacer presentaciones efectivas y originales.

Mindfulness, también conocido como conciencia plena o atención plena, es la actitud de prestar atención a los acontecimientos de la vida de forma especial. ¿Y qué tiene de especial? Pues que la atención está en el momento presente con aceptación e interés en lo que está sucediendo, suspendiendo juicios y con una actitud de aceptación. Jon Kabat-Zinn, uno de los más reconocidos expertos en mindfulness y creador del programa MBSR (1979, Universidad de Masachusetts), define mindfulness como “la conciencia que surge al prestar atención de forma particular, con intención, al momento presente y sin juzgar”.

En el momento de preparar o realizar una presentación en público ¿Tu mente suele estar recordando hechos catastróficos pasados? ¿Imaginando situaciones de fracaso futuro que muy probablemente nunca lleguen a ocurrir? La práctica de mindfulness ayuda a centrar la atención en el contenido de la presentación en el momento presente, en el aquí y en el ahora, en armonía contigo y con tu entorno. Practicaremos unos ejercicios de atención plena, que te ayudaran a conseguir una mente en calma necesaria para disfrutar de la situación con apertura y relajación.

En este taller para emprendedores aprenderemos las claves para hacer una presentación eficaz y original,  para conectar con el público,

¿A quién no le apetece disfrutar de su presentación con atención plena?








La octava edición de Burgos Startup Weekend se abre al talento de los alumnos de FP

Entre el 15 y el 17 de febrero el programa para emprendedores Startup Weekend, que se desarrolla durante un intenso fin de semana en cientos de ciudades de 150 países de todo el mundo, celebrará su octava edición en Burgos. Organizado por la Universidad de Burgos y la agencia Nueve Comunicación, tendrá lugar la Biblioteca Central de la Universidad de Burgos. Se trata de una experiencia útil para que los emprendedores evalúen si sus ideas de negocio son viables y llevarlas a cabo hasta su máximo potencial. Un evento en el que los participantes tienen la oportunidad de acercarse al mundo del emprendimiento y entrar en el ecosistema emprendedor y trabajar con personas de distintos perfiles con interés en los negocios que se reúnen en equipos alrededor de una idea para convertirla en realidad y crear una empresa con presencia en internet. En esta edición la convocatoria se abre también a estudiantes de FP que tengan ideas de negocio o que quieran acercarse al emprendimiento.

“Startup Weekend es la gran fiesta del emprendimiento, y desde la Universidad de Burgos agradecemos esta oportunidad de fomentar el espíritu emprendedor porque es uno de nuestros objetivos”, ha destacado José Miguel García Pérez, vicerrector de Investigación y Transferencia del Conocimiento de la Universidad de Burgos, en la  rueda de prensa en la que se ha presentado hoy este evento. El vicerrector ha recordado el trabajo que desde UBU Emprende se hace en este sentido, apoyando a los estudiantes que quieren emprenden y dotándoles de herramientas y recursos, y que desde que se creó ha ayudado a la creación de 27 empresas y 5 spin-off.

Como ha asegurado Miriam Erviti, socia de la agencia Nueve Comunicación y organizadora del evento, la mayoría de personas que han participado en este programa aseguran que es una experiencia única, “Las estadísticas que maneja la aceleradora Teachstars, que está detrás de evento a nivel internacional, dicen que el 50% de los emprendedores que pasan por Startup Weekend ponen en marcha proyectos de emprendimiento en el plazo de seis meses a un año. Empresas como Fairchanges, el marketplace verde pro derechos humanos donde comprar productos sostenibles sin intermediarios;,  o Bet4gamers, la primera red social para jugadores de videojuegos, son algunas de la empresas creadas por anteriores participantes del programa  Startup Weekend de Burgos”, ha dicho Miriam Erviti. Sergio Martín, cofundador de esta última, ha contado su experiencia. “Los socios de Bet4Gamers.com nos conocimos en la Universidad de Burgos y todo hemos participado en distintas ediciones de Startup Weekend, quedando bien clasificados. Teníamos inquietud por dar forma a algo nuestro y así nació esta red social en la que los jugadores pueden retarse entre ellos a los principales e-sports, participar en torneos exclusivos, unirse a clanes, ganar premios y crear comunidad. Es como una Copa del Rey  pero en los videojuegos en vez de en fútbol, porque permite a jugadores de la calle retar a gamers conocidos”, ha explicado Sergio Martín.








Se conocieron en un Burgos Startup Weekend… y esto es lo que pasa unos años después

AJO taller es un equipo de arquitectos que comparten una visión amplia y transversal de la arquitectura y la creatividad, especializados en diferentes ámbitos como la rehabilitación, la edificación, la realidad digital, la educación, el diseño y el márketing. En la actualidad son un estudio de referencia en Castilla y León, y en Techstars-Startup Weekend estamos muy orgullosos de haber tenido algo que ver en su origen.

Dos de sus arquitectos  se conocimos en la IV edición de Brugos Startup Wekeend, en la que resultaron ganadores con el proyecto baulAO. Sorprendentemente el siguiente año, otro de nuestros AJOs participó resultando asimismo ganador con el proyecto KOOKapp.
