France’s Hupi, one of the startups that took part in Bind 4.0’s first edition, has opened an office in San Sebastian, in the Basque Country. It will be using its new base to capture industrial customers for its big data and artificial intelligence solutions.

“The Bind 4.0 program triggered this development and has been a tremendous accelerator for us. The diversity of the events organized gave us a precise view of the state of the market, as well as an idea of its appetite for these new technologies”, explain founders Romain Roquefère and Vincent Moreno, who are already searching local talents in San Sebastian.

Having its own office, Hupi expects sales processes to speed up, while having access to a larger spectrum of business problems that can expand its portfolio of solutions based on AI. Through Bind 4.0, the French startup is already working for one of the largest Basque companies, car components manufacturer Maier.
