Empresa&Sociedad B2B

The Awards are an activity of Empresa&Sociedad, from which we offer external vision and entrepreneurial solutions for business priorities.

We start with this question for Companies: what are your business challenges?  Then we organize a tailor made session with solutions from selected entrepreneurs to propose solutions and develop them in collaboration with their teams (Open Challenge).

We rely on a Permanent Observatory (system of identification, analysis and selection) of B2B entrepreneurs with products of high growth potential. From it, Empresa&Sociedad provides companies with a complementary way of innovation to that of their internal teams and traditional consultants. On the other hand, we help B2B startus to accelerate customers, considering that they do not usually have business opportunities in their beginnings because they do not meet the usual requirements of the large companies’ purchasing processes.

370 B2B entrepreneurs, more than 550 business executives and 125 accelerators / programs / investors participated in our activities in 2016.

This is a unique niche in the entrepreneurial world, where forums focus on incubation and investment in the early stages but there are hardly any actors working to bring the entrepreneurial and business ecosystem closer together through products and services.
