About NEOTEC

NEOTEC initiative is aiming to support the creation and consolidation of new technology-based companies in Spain. Every year approximately 50 projects of technological innovation are approved in this initiative and receive funds from CDTI to carry out their execution. Moreover, the designation as a NEOTEC company is the highest distinction for corporate technological innovation in Spain due to the high levels of quality and innovation required. This way, in the IT field, where eBox project has been submitted, for every proposal approved CDTI rejects at least ten that do not match the level of excellency required.
