The Scaleups

Desafía San Francisco is a public partnership between ICEX and that facilitates the successful landing of Spanish technology companies in Silicon Valley and the US. Our success metrics matter: ~75% of the companies of our Immersion Program have US customers while ~40% opened an office or redomesticated to the United States.

The program is designed to fostering networking and collaboration opportunities between spanish startups and US based organizations. The Desafia project also includes an intense training and mentorship schedule. With both 1to1 and public sessions on Entrepreneurship, Fundraising, Product Management etc.

Spanish Founders were exposed to a network of selected investors (Business Angels, Venture Capital Funds, Corporate Venture Capitalists, Accelerators) that are in line with their growth stage and financial needs.
