Lanzadera, Marina de Empresas’ business accelerator promoted by Juan Roig, has selected more than 120 startups for its January call. It’s interesting to highlight that 15 of those come from Portugal.
The companies are innovating in real estate, health, industry, fashion, marketing, food, and energy sectors. In addition, those that have developed solutions using artificial intelligence to provide value to users are highlighted.
“For the first time, we have traveled outside Spain to attract companies. Portugal has pleasantly surprised us with the quality of the entrepreneurs and their projects. In general, the companies selected in this call offer differential technological solutions that position them strategically in the market”, explains Javier Jiménez, general manager of Lanzadera.
The selected companies are assigned to one of the 4 phases that make up the program: the Scale Up phase is aimed at mature companies that have a proven and profitable model but need help to reach new goals; the Growth phase boosts companies with potential but that are pursuing faster growth; the Traction phase is focused on startups in the early stages; and the Start phase is assigned to entrepreneurs who are still shaping their project.
Teams can receive grants ranging from 1,000 euros to 500,000 euros, depending on their needs. In addition, several of them can collaborate with large companies through the Corporate agreements currently active in Lanzadera.
Since its founding in 2013, Lanzadera has boosted more than 1,100 companies that have generated more than 10,000 jobs, providing 21.8 million euros in loans. Currently, around 300 companies are receiving support from Lanzadera at its facilities.
