What are the EXXI Awards?
For more than 12 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 CaixaBank via DayOne, the service for tech companies and investors, that seeks 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.
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 its creation in 2007, around 5.2m of euros have been invested in prizes and we have accompanied more than 360 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:
- 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.
Outside of the regional prize, companies whose activity is linked to one of the following industries may also opt for the following prizes:
- Award to the companies with the greatest growth potential in their sector: Agro Tech, Tourism Tech, Fin&Insur Tech, Commerce Tech, Health Tech and Impact Tech.
In addition, the Embassy of Israel in Spain grants access to innovation to a Spanish company and the Agência Nacional da Inovaçao, a Portuguese company, through BFKawards.
