Through our startup accelerator program, we are promoting innovative projects aimed at the energy industries, mobility and the circular economy, contributing to a more sustainable energy transition.
The Fundación Repsol Entrepreneurs Fund is a business accelerator that supports the talent of innovative start-ups in the fields of energy industry and advanced mobility.
Fundación Repsol selects 6 - 8 (seed or preseed stage) proposals in each edition, which receive for a year-long period financial support; technical and legal mentoring, training and, when possible, we try to facilitate pilot trials with the company.
There are two categories of support depending on the proposals' level of development: Ideas and Projects. Projects receive up to 144.000 euros per year, and Ideas receive 24.000 euros over 12 months.
