A project that started in Silicon Valley
InvierteMe is an initiative that began in Silicon Valley. In the summer of 2011, the 14 winners of the Yuzz competition from Fundación Banesto, amongst those including Héctor M. Morell, were awarded with a training trip to San Francisco. There, they had the opportunity to get to know the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Silicon Valley, network with American entrepreneurs and investors, receive information at the universities of Berkeley and Stanford, as well as visit the large businesses established in Palo Alto: Google, Ideo, Intel amongst others.
It was there where a new idea started to develop with the aim of inspiring, motivating and shaping entrepreneurs of any age in order to help them to get their projects moving.
Héctor M. Morell, Juan Merodio – expert in digital marketing – and Carlos Ruíz Tapiador – entrepreneur/investor that founded EConta, the company that later purchased BBVA, and founder of TMClick or ContyGo, investee enterprises of the Venture Capital Fund DAD – are some of the professionals that have got together in order to launch InvierteMe.
Héctor M. Morell, InvierteMe’s CEO, states that “80% of entrepreneurs do not know very much about where to find financing or how to get a good team, whereas the 20% that is left saturate investors with very immature projects”.
With a team of more than 10 people and after having achieved financing from investors, InvierteMe is now one of the private online platforms for the encouragement of entrepreneurship with the most methods focused on motivation and helping the whole of the entrepreneurial ecosystem through talent retention, the management and maturing of ideas and projects and the search for new access paths in order to find the financing required to transform viable projects into business realities.
InvierteMe is a meeting place on the internet for entrepreneurs and investors that have already captured an interest in the sector and the specialized methods. It is an online community that facilitates the financing and development of the most innovative business ideas.
InvierteMe is a dynamic and simple platform that strengthens the cooperation between users and the forming of work groups, generating a more productive, creative ambiance.
InvierteMe is a place of reference for all entrepreneurs eager to transform their idea into a profitable reality, and it already has users from more than 40 countries. It is a meeting place to share thoughts and give way to new projects. It is a place to find financing and keep updated on everything that goes on in the entrepreneurial community.
