Startup Olé

For the second year in a row, Repsol has participated in Startup Olé, an international event for emerging technology companies.

The Fundación Repsol Entrepreneurs Fund team travelled to Salamanca to attend the latest edition of Startup Olé. Over 400 startups participated in this two-day event, where they interacted with other key players in the entrepreneurial ecosystem including investors, accelerators, and representatives from government bodies, universities, and specialized media.

Five startups accelerated by the Entrepreneurs Fund also attended the event: Energy Harvesting, Plactherm, Aladyn System, Gnanomat, and Siterm.

The participants had the opportunity to attend conferences given by renowned experts from the entrepreneurship and technology sector. Furthermore, the event provided a setting for entrepreneurs to connect and exchange ideas, and also meet potential investors.

Startup Olé is organized by the University of Salamanca, the regional government of Castilla y León, and the European Commission's Startup Europe initiative. Multiple public and private entities also sponsor the event.
