This is a cooperative undertaking and the result of a private initiative. It has been created by relevant stakeholders in the Basque innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, namely the Business Angels Crecer + network (Orkestra- Basque Competitiveness Institute), BerriUp (accelerator of new business projects), Tecnalia Ventures, Elkargi, Culinary Action (Basque Culinary Center, EPSV Geroa and Adegi).
Its aim is to contribute from Gipuzkoa to the creation of greater dynamism and interconnection between private and public agents as a key to the generation of new business activity and, consequently, the improvement and strengthening of the Basque entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Its main purpose is to offer an unbeatable opportunity to startups that are facing the challenge of growing with a venture capital investor or industrial partner. Without forgetting the importance of the connection in terms of open innovation between the great asset of the Basque SMEs and the new technological innovation and development business models that these startups offer.
