We back the creation of products and businesses to generate value for society in the field of life and health sciences

CaixaImpulse, a programme promoted by the ”la Caixa” Foundation and Caixa Capital Risc, aims to drive the creation of businesses in the scientific field.

If knowledge is transferred from research centres to the market, society as a whole can benefit from advances and discoveries.

The CaixaImpulse programme is aimed at research centres working on projects they wish to transfer to society. They are primarily universities, hospitals and other research centres, or non-profit bodies working in research.

CaixaImpulse offers them all a programme of expert support and financial assistance to draw up and implement a business plan to make their project a reality:

  • Giving a grant of up to €70,000 to carry out approved exploitation plans.

  • Assuring the support of top mentors from the field of industry to help define the right plans for exploitation and marketing.

  • Providing contacts with companies, entrepreneurs and investors to assess exploitation and marketing plans, and also to generate opportunities for collaboration and business.

  • Providing specialist training and expert support in the fields of project management, exploiting technology, financing and marketing tools and team building.

  • CaixaImpulse Innovation for society
