Bizkaia’s partnership with SOSA was created to leverage the strength of the Basque country’s ecosystem, and enhance the competitive edge of its corporations and startups into the world’s leading tech capitals.
“This program gave us the opportunity to get in touch and learn from one of the most dynamic, unique and innovative environments for startups.”
“Coming to Tel Aviv, is like coming to the Silicon Valley of the Middle East. It is a brilliant experience. You visit a new country, meet new startups, VCs, and people who want to help you. This is a great way to grow as a company. I would recommend it 100 percent.”
Beaz Bizkaia is a public company of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, which was created to support local enterprises and entrepreneurs in their efforts to create new projects, innovate, invest, and go global. The entity provides a wide range of services and grants both to the local companies and the ones willing to "land" in Biscay, having two clear targets: generation of new companies in the ecosystem and the acceleration of existing ones.
The territory of Biscay is one of the world´s best connected entrepreneurship hub through a global network of stakeholders. Beaz Bizkaia attracts and promotes foreign direct investment into the territory, being one of the regions with the best reputation of doing business.
Appreciating the distinct cultural, lingual, societal, and economic features that make up the Basque tech ecosystem, the Bizkaia-SOSA program allows Bizkaia members to undergo corporate tech transformations and for startups to scale and go global in their target market.
