What are the Entrepreneur XXI Awards?
More than a decade identifying companies with high potential and guide them on the road to success.
The EntrepreneurXXI Awards are an initiative promoted by CaixaBank through DayOne, the service for technological companies and investors, which aims to identify, recognise and guide young companies with a high growth potential. These awards are co-granted with the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, and Tourism 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 the development of innovative companies.
The Entrepreneur XXI Awards aim to drive companies that have taken their first steps, allowing them to accelerate their growth process and global expansion.
Since the awards were created in 2007, around 5.2 million Euros have been invested in awards and we have helped more than 360 companies. Apart from the awards themselves, winning this award provides the winners with visibility, prestige, and access to contacts as the principal values.
All candidate companies may choose from among the following awards:
- Awards to companies with high impact in their territory. All companies in a territory compete for this award regardless of their sector.
Outside of the regional award, companies whose activity is linked to one of the following industries may also opt for the following awards:
- Award to companies with high growth potential in their sector: AgroFood, Health, Senior, Mobility, Impact and PropTech.
Additionally, the awards rely on the support of the Embassy of Israel in Spain and the Agência Nacional da Inovaçao which awards a second prize for innovation to a Portuguese company through the BFK Awards.
