What are the EXXI Awards?
For more than 10 years, we’ve been identifying companies with greater potential and accompanying them on the path to success.
The EntrepreneurXXI Awards are an initiative promoted by “la Caixa” which aims to identify, recognise and accompany young companies with greater growth potential. These Awards are co-granted with the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness through Empresa Nacional de Innovación, S.A. (ENISA) in Spain and Banco BPI in Portugal and have the support of more than 130 leading entities involved in supporting the development of innovative companies.
Since its creation in 2007, around €4,280,000 have been invested in prizes and we have accompanied 289 companies. Apart from the prizes awarded, the winners gain visibility, prestige and access to contacts as the principal values that this recognition provides.
All candidate companies may choose from among the following awards:
- Award to the companies with the greatest growth potential in their sector: Life Sciences, Information Technologies, Digital Businesses, Industrial Technologies and Agricultural-Food Production.
- Awards to companies with the greatest impact in their territory. This award is competed for by all companies in a territory regardless of their sector.
In addition to these prizes, the Israeli Embassy in Spain awards a second place prize for innovation.
