Highly innovative start-ups and SMEs from Spain and Portugal are invited to apply for the EntrepreneurXXI Awards until 12 December. The awards aim to identify, recognise and accompany young companies with great potential for growth.

There will be two types of prizes. Sector Prizes are open to companies within the areas of Health Tech, Agro Tech, Tourism Tech, Fin&Insur Tech, Commerce Tech, and Impact Tech. The winner from each category will take away a prize of €25,000. Within Health Tech, companies that are involved in therapeutics, diagnosis, and development of medical technologies will be considered.

Applicants from all sectors can also compete for Regional Prizes of €5,000. These will recognise the companies with the highest growth potential in their regions. There will be 17 such prizes awarded to Spanish companies and two to Portuguese companies.

The winners from each sector and region, as well as two finalists from each sector, will have access to an international guidance programme. The Awards are an initiative of CaixaBank via DayOne, and they are co-awarded and supported by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism through ENISA in Spain and Banco BPI in Portugal.
