The Open Shoes project began to be known thanks to Crowdsasuna, a crowdfunding driven by the Basque Innovation Agency – Innobasque, with the support of Obra Social “la Caixa” and Goteo Platform. More than fifty companies and individuals supported us in that first moment, for which we were one of the five projects selected on 2014.
Subsequently, The Open Shoes was one of the 53 projects selected by the Fabulous Fiware program of the European Union.
All this has allowed us to reach the current time when, as we continue moving forward on several fronts: we are looking for partners in the world of 3D printing and in the footwear manufacture as well as investors interested in collaborating with the project. At the same time we are working on the business plan, thanks to Youth Business International, through Gaztenpresa Foundation. And, of course, we keep trying to improve the prototype midsole.
