Investment vehicles

BStartup10

Every year we invest in 10 companies during their initial phases, 100,000 euros per project, in exchange for an interest in the share capital. The companies receive capital and highly personalised guidance to help them develop their market and enter the following rounds.

Companies during the seed phase eligible for BStartup10 investment must, in addition to the general investment criteria, satisfy the following points:

  • The company must be incorporated and have at least one product or service developed; having the initial metrics of market validation is an asset.
  • A team of entrepreneurs who possess the majority shareholding in the company and are 100% committed to the project.

In the Aula BStartup10 you can see videos on group guidance sessions, although they are generally individual and carried out by the serial entrepreneur Dídac Lee and his team.

SYNERGIES with the Bank

Banco Sabadell will study the potential synergies between the products submitted by the startups and the innovation processes of the bank to include them in our Open Innovation strategy, if it is in the interests of both parties.

The Bank may also become a client, as it is for many other startups.

Co-investment and collaboration

The Banco Sabadell philosophy is collaboration. This philosophy is present in the BStartup initiative and for this reason, co-investment is encouraged with the different players in the national and international investment eco-system.

We also collaborate with the entire eco-system that encourages the creation and growth of these companies: incubators, accelerators, business angels networks, development agencies, universities and technology parks.
