New venture capital funds
In addition to the programme CaixImpulse, as we discussed in a post last week, the Botín Foundation also intends to reform its commitment to the sector.
Thanks to CaixImpulse, 15 projects in the field of health will receive the necessary financial support for the preparation and implementation of their value creation and marketing plans for their assets.
The Botín Foundation is working on the creation of a fund to attract external capital and place it in the biotech sector. The fund, which is expected to be set up before the end of the year, will have a minority shareholding from the Foundation.
