Invest in Basque Valley

To invest in Basque Valley is to bet on the future of one territory : Euskadi (Basque Country).

You can participate in the development of your region by investing in the real economy close to home.
Basque Valley is part of a wider ecosystem that we’ve been building brick by brick for the past 4 years, in 3 areas : Talents, Capital & Lifestyle.

Talents :, the school for startup professions.

Capital : Basque Valley, the Startup Studio and Venture Capital.

Lifestyle : a Pottok Club clothing brand, our Startups eta Pintxoak events and a newsletter for learning Basque.

Basque Valley was the missing link, born of two complementary areas of expertise :

Private equity via Rudolphe Michau of Positive Capital. Growth & Go to market via myself LOL. x

We are convinced that this combination is our strength, and our investment thesis represents a real opportunity.

We invest in startups based in the Basque Country (north & south), a region that attracts talent, the threshold between France and Spain. We are convinced that this territory will see the birth of many market-leading companies in the years to come.

We’re involved from pre-seed to Series A, because there’s a total void in the investment offer at these stages. What’s more, the existing funds are very traditional in their operation and not suited to startups.

Our secret sauce lies in our ability to support them via concrete levers :

1. Build equity story fairness for entrepreneurs.

2. Operational support in the form of advisory services, with a focus on profitability rather than uncontrolled growth.

3. Crossing borders and sharing our European network.
