Renfe, with its Trenlab acceleration program, opens the doors to innovation in the mobility, transport and logistics sector. Its portfolio is configured with more than 1,000 startups presented, 22 participating startups, and 325 jobs created.

The BIGBAN awards were created with the aim of providing visibility, transparency and excellence to the investment ecosystem. They are developed in two phases, a previous nomination of three candidates by an expert committee and a subsequent open vote of the innovative ecosystem that selects the winner in each of the categories.

BIGBAN Investors Congress is a private investment event with the objective of creating a meeting point between the main actors of the investment ecosystem, such as Business Angels, entrepreneurs, Family Offices,
