TECNALIA Ventures

At TECNALIA Ventures we focus our efforts on the creation of a venture building ecosystem in order to help TECNALIA transfer its technology to the market. We connect the three fundamental pillars of any innovation ecosystem: minds, management and money.

MINDS: people / organizations focused on the generation of technology-based ideas that solve P&L problems to the industry.

MANAGEMENT: people with an entrepreneurial profile / business vision capable of transferring the technology developed by the minds to the market, thus generating real business opportunities. These are profiles to which the value proposition of transforming a technological spin-off into a growing SME is attractive to them.

MONEY: smart investors that not only provide the necessary financial muscle to transform technologies into revenues but are also committed to supporting the development of the company.

Therefore, we offer services such as: acceleration programs, entrepreneurs’ club, technology transfer training programs, support for business diversification, set up of proof-of-concept funds, etc.

We aim to turn innovative technological assets into new profitable and sustainable businesses.

We do all this by identifying technologically disruptive solutions, exposing them from early stages of development to investment criteria, focusing the efforts on the business opportunities with highest commercialization potential.

“We help technologically disruptive start-ups to cross the valley of death, unleashing the technological skills that set them apart and mitigating technological risk.”
