    Wherefore art thou a Sneakerhead?
    Fashion. Technology. Two sectors close to the heart of Wherefor, deriving from its Italian and French heritage from one part, its core activities revolving around Innovation on the other. It is therefore almost natural that Wherefor has a Venture Studio specializing in the exploding FashionTech Industry. We have decided to accompany one of our key Startup Partners, StyleTracker (through its Flagship project SneakerTracker), to Cologne (Germany), where they are the Digital Partner of the biggest

    Wherefor and Smarthealth [Smarthealth event]
    In line with its growing interest in the MedTech field, Wherefor was happy to attend the SmartHealth competition taking place at the French Institute of Budapest. Regrouping some of the most promising Start-ups in the sector from France and the Visegrad 4 countries, we truly believe it is paramount to have such initiatives in Hungary to foster “E-nnovation”. We thank the organisers for the event, perhaps next time Wherefor will be present not only as partners, but also with some of its startups
