This European Startup is now the world’s largest music and audio platform! And it’s for free. SoundCloud was founded in 2007 with a basic idea: Create a platform that connects audio and music creators directly with their supporters. Today everyone knows SoundCloud not only for its unique content and features, but also as a hotbed of raw talent. By now, music and audio creators can share and monetise their content via SoundCloud, as well as enjoy the benefits of a global, dynamic community.
Slido is digitally transforming the way we see meetings – one conference at a time. Its platform doesn’t just make audience interaction easy, it introduces features that were previously inconceivable. Now you can crowd-source the most popular questions from your audience or conduct live polls that feed into your debate – in real time. With Slido, every meeting can become a dialogue.

BiteBack's growth is being supported by Startupbootcamp FoodTech, based in Rome.
