Venture capital is Sodena’s main financial instrument when undertaking investment projects. Sodena is an active venture capital partner that supports the management of the companies it participates in. It gets involved in decision-making on the Board of Directors and puts its wide network of contacts at the company’s disposal.
Sodena has initiated a proactive strategy to capture business investment, with the aim of attracting projects and facilitating their implementation in the region. To do this it concentrates on the sectors with the greatest potential for creating wealth for the region, either due to the strong points of the productive fabric or for its pull effect on other sectors. These are Agrifood, Automotive, Biotechnology, Energy and the Environment, Information and Communication Technologies and the emerging Audivisual Sector. Sodena also offers investors interested in the region a wide range of consultancy and support services that cover all their needs during the process of taking decisions on setting up in the region. These services are personalised, free-of-charge and confidential, include the provision of information on the quality and costs of the business environment of Navarra, the organisation of visits to the region and support during the implementation phase.
The Smart Specialisation Strategy - S3 Navarra – is a medium and long term plan promoted by the Government of Navarra with support from Sodena, along with other economic and knowledge stakeholders, which sets to improve socio-economic conditions in Navarra by specialising its economy where it has competitive advantages and the potential for technological excellence. Sodena also collaborates with the Government of Navarra in implementing the policy to develop and promote clusters, which is a tool designed to encourage business cooperation and so improve the competitiveness of associated companies in the high priority areas of the S3.
