Here is a short excerpt from one of the articles: Lanzadera, the startup accelerator of Marina de Empresas – the ecosystem created by Juan Roig, owner of Mercadona – has selected nearly one hundred new companies innovating in health, logistics, marketing , talent and human resources, food, fintech or fashion, among others. Altogether, they amassed a turnover of more than 18 million euros last year.
"This selection of companies somewhat reflects the considerable innovation that entrepreneurs are bringing in areas such as human resources or logistics, as well as the growth potential of SaaS models. We observe greater scalability of projects, which is very motivating for our work" says Javier Jiménez, managing director of Lanzadera.
