The INVIERTE PCT Cartuja programme, which was launched in 2012, aims to make it easier for entrepreneurs to gain access to capital financing for their start-ups. To that end, group training sessions and individualised mentoring activities are organised to enable them to get their company ready as far as communication (how to prepare the pitch), finance, legal, operational, etc. matters are concerned, and each edition is closed with an investor forum.
In the eight editions held from 2012 to 2019, this programme has enabled the Cartuja STP to train and assess 165 entrepreneurs. 8 Investor Forums have been organised in which 78 start-ups have been presented and more than 80 investors have attended consisting of business angels and venture capital companies. In total, in the seven editions of the Programme, capital financing amounting to €3m was raised.
Projects that succeed in completing funding rounds achieved an average of EUR 150,000. Here are some examples of companies that managed to get funding through the Invierte PCT Cartuja programme:
