FOCO and Next-Tech Funds in Spain: Opportunities for Foreign Venture Capital Funds

In the dynamic context of international investment, Spain emerges as a strategic and appealing destination for foreign investment funds. With a favourable business environment, a robust legal infrastructure, and sustained economic growth, the Spanish market provides promising opportunities for investors looking to diversify their portfolios and achieve significant returns.

In this context, the public funds FOCO and Next-Tech stand out as prominent investment opportunities for investors looking to explore the Spanish market. These funds, focused on specific sectors such as technology, innovation, and startups, offer promising return potential and productive portfolio diversification.

In this regard, to assure foreign investment funds, the FOCO and Next-Tech Funds invest jointly with a foreign co-investor in the Spanish territory, as well as with technological, innovative, and sustainable companies.
