Morey Creative Studios client Citibeats was named one of the five best digital start-ups from around the world at the 4YFN Awards, part of the 2022 MWC (formerly the Mobile World Congress) event in Barcelona, which took place from February 28th to March 3rd.

A Morey Creative Studios client since 2021, Citibeats’ social data platform is powered by a custom “ethical AI” to help governments, multilateral organizations, and global businesses to understand and react to societal change in real time.

4YFN (Four Years From Now) is a start-up event that seeks to support new digital ventures and provide connections between founders, investors, and companies—a remit that includes its global competition for digital start-ups.

As a finalist in the 2022 awards, Citibeats was invited to participate in the 2022 MWC event—the largest mobile industry event in the world. The honor included the opportunity to pitch at the 4YFN Discovery Area Pitching Stage, which was attended by leading funds and VCs from across the globe.
