Founded in 2007, 3scale provides a Plug & Play SaaS API Management platform and infrastructure which enables developers and companies to securely open, control, manage, operate and monetize their APIs to third parties.

Not familiar with API’s? An application programming interface (API) specifies how some software components should interact with each other. In other words: APIs make possible to interconnect applications by exposing some of a program’s internal functions to the outside world –which in turn makes it possible for applications to share data and take actions on each other’s behalf without requiring developers to share all of their software’s code.
Curious to know more? Steven Wilmott, CEO at 3scale, kindly responded some questions and shared the skinny on all things 3scale with us! Let’s dive into them…

From February 24th to the 27th the city of Barcelona will host the world’s greatest technology event: the 2014 Mobile World Congress (MWC).
The MWC is a combination of a cutting-edge product and technology exhibition, a conference programme featuring some of the most prominent executives in the mobile industry and a meeting point where professionals find industry opportunities, make deals and network. Wonder how great it is? The figures talk by themselves: 98.000 sqm of exhibition, 202 countries represented, 1700 exhibitors and more than 72.000 senior mobile professionals –including 4.300 CEOs and 57% of C-Level executives.
When you ask something, you better ask nicely. In the Internet, this could be translated to : When you ask a question, do it using creative, user friendly and beautifully designed forms. Sound obvious? Well, apparently it’s not that clear since we have been using the same old fashioned and ugly forms during years.Until now.
A Barcelona-based startup known as Typeform is changing the way we ask questions online: they have developed an application that allows us to create innovative, clean and modern forms (or typeforms). And the result is not only a matter of image: typeforms have proved to be more efficient than old-stylish forms –people are more likely to answer something when you ask it in a nice way.
Robert Muñoz, co-founder and co-CEO in Typeform, kindly answered our questions about this innovative company.

We are just following the trends, you know?… Generally, we like to bring startups together for a beer and chat with great talent – however have realised we missed the boat. We want to start claiming equity! Don’t worry this is just a test with terms that may or may not be binding.
