First edition of the #SubvencionsActua

In September 2018, Actua presented the first edition of the subsidies programme for small and medium-sized companies with an initial amount of 190,000 euros. Due to the large volume of requests, the budget was expanded with a new allocation of 90,000 euros. Of the 141 applications, 88 were approved and 53 were rejected due to non-compliance with the rules or due to the exhaustion of the financial allocation. 24% of the projects presented were related to the commerce and hotel sector, and 10% to companies with their own products and distribution.

The goal of this program is to finance those services that facilitate the access of the company to digitalization, Innovation, internationalization processes and entrepreneurship.
