These were some of the developments in BBVA Open Talent 2015

A year brimming with emotions and experiences. The seventh BBVA Open Talent event ended up with six winners who enjoyed and competed with the best projects to walk off with the prizes in 2015.

Everledger, Origin Markets, ModernLend, Lending Front, Bitnexo and Destácame. They made the headlines in 2015, in an edition of BBVA Open Talent in which the fintech world and all finance-related sectors revolutionized this competition, which has now been held seven times.

The major new development this year was the Immersion and Innovation program in London and Mexico. It turned out to be successful for the learning process not only of these six startups , but for a large number of BBVA executives and partners who took part in these two weeks of intense activity.

To reach this far, however, they had to compete with the best: over 650 startups signed up one year ago. The most popular areas were loans, payments, investments, personal finance, Big Data , eBusiness and financial inclusion.

The three finals in Latin America, Europe and the US and the rest of the world proved to be two frenetic days of networking, meetings, training, and naturally, persuading the jury and the public at the events about the merits of each of one of the projects in the "pitches".

We are changing the world of banking together.
