Spain

Blazing the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Spain and cementing the region’s role as an international hub for growing early stage startups.

Startup Wise Guys Spain

The Spanish market, with its flourishing startup ecosystem and lack of early-stage investors, provides promising opportunities for international investment players. Spain is becoming a serious contender in the European startup market, with its continual growth, fertile research connections and government backing, making it the perfect destination to kickstart a startup. 

The Startup Wise Guys team, based in Bilbao and Malaga, facilitate the connection between international investors and entrepreneurial founders within the region. Their local know-how and years of experience provide early stage startups with everything they need to scale up and unlock their potential. 

The Startup Wise Guys may have been located in Spain for only one year but we are thriving. We have set up  XR programs, invested into over 20 companies, strengthened local partnerships…  and this is just the beginning… Spain is one to watch this year!

Who is it for?

Our Spain programs are designed for local early stage startups who are looking for a launchpad into the global startup community, and also international teams who want to adopt Spain as a strategic destination to grow in. We are seeking enthusiastic founders who are ambitious, strategically minded and committed to making a difference with their companies

We are also looking for investors, both local and international, who seek to join forces with The Startup Wise Guys to set up tomorrow’s talent for global success. Spain provides an opportunity for diverse investment pipelines and we also want additional partners to support us accelerating startups in Spain.
