Building the future of social change

Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Change
Cuanimen wishes to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth. We also wish to accompany innovative companies in the development of applications to improve the banking sector. Consequently, the fund aims to influence certain key sectors of Spain’s social ecosystem:
Companies that employ undermined sectors of the population, or that offer products and services that can improve the quality of life of these collectives.
Small and medium companies that hold the potential of achieving large-scale growth and generating significant employment.
Companies that improve the effectiveness and inclusiveness of our education sector, improving school performance, developing methods por special needs students or making quality education accessible to underprivileged sectors of society.
Companies that allow consumers to eat more healthily, including those that improve the methods of food production.
Companies that generate a positive impact in the development of local and sustainable agriculture.
Companies that promote reutilization of resources and recycling, clean energy sources, or reduction of pollution and waste.
The Cuanimen team is convinced that by promoting the growth of innovative social and environmental business models we will contribute to modernize our economy and to generate large scale positive impact.
Our team is formed by a unique combination of professionals within the FinTech, Private Equity / Venture Capital and Entrepreneurship sectors, with a successful investment track record in the last decade.
