If you have a valuable idea, here is a team willing to go the extra mile

SPRI is committed to innovation, entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship. It provides new business initiatives with the support they need, giving them comprehensive and flexible support tailored to their needs, so that they can successfully launch, grow and consolidate themselves in the market.

We prioritise technology-based and/or advanced innovation projects (Start-ups) in the industrial sectors, new industry 4.0 technologies (Big data, virtual/augmented reality, collaborative robotics, cybersecurity, Internet of things, 3D printing, etc.) and technologies applied to the fields of advanced manufacturing, energy and health.


The projects that pass through here end up being part of our daily life, and we could not be prouder when we see how they’re consolidated.

The challenges of entrepreneurship in the Basque Country

Promoting entrepreneurial culture and values at all levels of society and stages of life, ensuring that the population as a whole has a positive awareness of entrepreneurship as an attractive option for the future. Increasing the critical mass and quality of ideas and new initiatives arising from the different "fishing grounds" and sources, meeting the specific needs of each entrepreneurial group. Offering alternatives of access to financing and investment to projects with potential to be created, take off, grow and be consolidated. Offering market access opportunities and "first customers" to entrepreneurial projects, especially those with the greatest potential in future RIS3 sectors.
Adapting the existing processes, programmes and support services to the needs of the entrepreneurial population through inter-institutional and public-private coordination and collaboration

Updating tax and regulatory tools to eliminate barriers to entrepreneurial work, placing the Basque Country as a reference in tax and regulatory development.


Having "smart" infrastructures that contribute to the creation, maturation, growth and consolidation of new projects. Contar con infraestructuras “inteligentes” que contribuyan al nacimiento, maduración, crecimiento y consolidación de los
nuevos proyectos.
Positioning the Basque Country as a “good place to start” among its citizens and in other state and international environments—a place with an increasingly comprehensive, active, synergistic and well-known support ecosystem. 

The inter-institutional Plan

The Department of Economic Development and Infrastructure driving the Basque System of Entrepreneurship is supported by an inter-institutional plan signed by the Basque Government and the Provincial Councils to advance in the joint and coordinated improvement of the Basque entrepreneurship ecosystem.

A shared plan with our allies and partners to strengthen entrepreneurship in the Basque Country.
