  • The 9 selected initiatives now begin their incubation process in an itinerary that will run for four months.
  • The most mature projects with growth potential will be able to continue their development with the support of the municipal company Las Rozas Innova.

Madrid, November 2021 – The City Council of Las Rozas has launched the 1st edition of “Incuba Las Rozas”, the business project incubation program that aims to promote entrepreneurship and innovation by supporting and accompanying the initiatives of technological and innovative entrepreneurs, while promoting a labor market that generates quality employment. An initiative promoted by the Department of Economy, Employment and Innovation and Education, through Las Rozas Next, and especially aimed at the potential talent of the city, but also to those who intend to link and develop their projects in Las Rozas.

This first edition has had a successful reception, with a total of 49 projects registered, highlighting both the entrepreneurial potential of Las Rozas as well as its attractiveness as a pole of innovation and technological development of reference in the Madrid West area. Therefore, the selection of the 9 projects that will finally be part of the incubation program has not been easy, due to the quality and potential of the proposals submitted.

The program began last Thursday, November 11th and will last for the next 4 months, during which the selected projects will receive:

o Specialized training adapted to the development needs of the projects.
o Personalized mentoring in the areas that each project requires.
o Networking with entrepreneurs and business people with whom to exchange knowledge and establish synergies.
o Demoday at the end of the program with feedback from investors who will evaluate each project.
o Post-incubation follow-up at the end of the program.

The most mature projects with growth potential will be able to continue their development with the support of the municipal company Las Rozas Innova. This is the case of some of the projects presented in which, due to their degree of maturity, present specific needs different from those foreseen by the incubation program and which will be analyzed by Las Rozas Innova in order to provide them with other forms of support.

Among the 9 selected projects are innovative business proposals based on technology with a very high potential for impact, focused on solving problems in different sectors, such as agriculture, health, technology, mobility, education, payment methods, distribution, HORECA or human resources.

“With this first edition of “Incuba Las Rozas” we add one more initiative in our strategic objective of turning the municipality into a benchmark for innovation,” said the mayor of Las Rozas and president of Las Rozas Innova, José de la Uz.

“Incuba Las Rozas” comes to complete the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Las Rozas that the City Council has launched: on the one hand, Las Rozas Next, an initiative of the Department of Economy, Employment and Innovation and Education, directed by Mercedes Piera, which encompasses programs that encourage entrepreneurship and the development of ideas and projects from early school age to adulthood; and on the other, the acceleration and financing of more mature projects through the municipal company Las Rozas Innova.
