One of the main reasons that led the jury to award Cuatroochenta is its slid track since it began its journey in 2011, allowing it to grow from 5 to 30 employees, consolidating its international expansion with two offices in Latin America (Panama and Colombia). At present, the firm, located in the Science, Technology, and Business Park of the University Jaume I, Espaitec, has become a benchmark in Spain and Central America in apps development and advanced software.
