Our mission

As a business development company, EKARPEN is an investment channel considered to be a referent in the Basque region. We contribute to the consolidation and activation of the industrial fabric by supporting sound business projects in their concentration, growth, internationalisation, innovation, and family continuity processes. We thus facilitate the positioning of Basque companies in the face of economic globalisation by encouraging business cooperation and strategic alliances, maximising companies’ funding capacity, and fostering professional management.

We contribute financial resources to companies buying minority shares and/or through loan stock. For as long as we take part in a business project, our team share their experience and know-how and we are part of the company’s administrative bodies.
