About Us

EKARPEN was established on July 28th, 2008 with the aim of supporting relatively large innovative industries of strategic interest to the Basque Country whose projects would result in the creation of value.  

The corporation was founded by the Government of the Basque Country, the Basque savings banks, and the three Provincial Governments. Our investment amounts to €100M, and we are studying the possibility of raising it to €400M.
