Venture Investments

Dedicated to providing equity to digital technology early-stage startups across Spain and the rest of Europe.

We invest in exceptional entrepreneurs who manage early-stage tech companies, with a focus on disrupting the finance, insurance and banking sector.

We focus on projects that aim to change the status quo in banking,  insurance and financial services, with a broad investment scope.

We seek to invest in companies that have created an innovative product or technology, and do so with a business-oriented mentality, simple terms and processes, offering the necessary resources to scale up the business.

We invest in early stage, with the capacity to follow-on in the next rounds. In certain occasions, we are also able to invest in the seed stage.

Together with other divisions of the Gala Capital group, we are currently extending our scope within the ventures division to the industries of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

PHILOSOPHY

We Work for Entrepreneurs

We become close partners with our portfolio companies while allowing the entrepreneurs to lead their businesses. In this way, we tailor our investment resources to fit the needs of our portfolio companies, giving them the tools they need to launch and grow their businesses.

Long-Term Relationship

Startups go through ups and downs and time is needed to build a profitable and stable company. We believe in creating strong and lasting relationships with our portfolio companies based on trust, because we invest with a purpose of staying for the long run.

We are able to invest through all the venture capital stages, with the capacity to follow-on in the subsequent rounds, either directly, or through other investment divisions of the Gala Capital group.

Strong Vision with Market Orientation

We partner with entrepreneurs who have founded a company following a strong strategic vision and a clear market orientation, and that are now looking to grow their companies. We invest in startups that are managed by teams with complementary profiles and areas of expertise that are able to create results.

Focus on Innovation and Technology

We look for opportunities to build businesses through innovation, a clear technological advantage or an innovative proposal that could result in the digital transformation of the financial sector.

Reducing the Risk of Venture Capital

We aim to reduce the venture capital early-stage investment risk by leading funding rounds for exceptional startups, at times entering at the earliest venture capital stages. We follow a long-term approach and use investment models that faithfully reflect our investment philosophy.

Ecosystem Creation

We are an active player in the development of the Spanish startup ecosystem by backing early-stage tech companies, and connecting these startups to corporate players such as clients or industrial partners that are looking for digital transformation and innovation.
