Mango hopes the project will promote innovation in the company, detect growth opportunities and participate in the development of new technology or business models.

According to CEO of Mango, Toni Ruiz, the new accelerator will also allow Mango to better understand the startup ecosystem, establish contacts with the main players in the sector and assess trends and new disruptive technologies.
