The EntrepreneurXXI Awards is an annual competition for Spanish and Portuguese startups with high impact potential. Companies can enter the competition online until 4 December. Open to new companies that launched no earlier than 2016, startups can apply in one of six sectors: AgroFood, Health, Senior, Mobility, Impact and PropTech.

Within the Health category, the competition invites companies that develop solutions in the field of therapeutics, diagnoses, medical technologies, and e-health.

The awards aim to provide financial support—as well as crucial exposure and access to key contacts—to aid the expansion of ambitious companies that have already taken their first steps.

Each sector winner will receive €15,000, while the entrants selected as the best companies in their geographical region will be granted €5,000.

Furthermore, all winners and certain finalists will be invited to take part in an international business development programme organised by ESADE in collaboration with Singularity University, or an international business development course, Ignite Fast Track, from the University of Cambridge.

This competition is an initiative of CaixaBank through DayOne, and the 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.
