According to the report from the Startup Observatory in Spain, from the Bankinter Innovation Foundation, the first two quarters of 2022 had a positive trend in relation to the operations carried out. However, during the third quarter the interventions were reduced. Despite this fact, investment has been maintained over the years, reaching 738 million euros in the third quarter of this year.

In this sense, the Spanish ecosystem is attractive to foreign investors. The Bankinter Innovation Foundation report argues that the trends for the last quarter of 2022 show that the Foreign investment in Spain has reached 414 million, advancing both the mixed investment with 218 million and the local one with 106 million. Likewise, unicorn startups have increased notably in the economic sector. Specifically, in 2021, there was a record 540 tech startups with unicorn status, according to the 2022 Global Startup Ecosystem Analysis.

The outlook for tech startups for the year 2023 is mostly positive. IDC in its Worldwide Artificial Intelligence Software Forecast, 2022–2026 report states that those startups related to Hardware products will receive an estimated investment of more than 500,000 million dollars next year. “Startups are increasingly present in the life of the population, as they provide technological improvements and many facilities”, specifies Quino Fernández, CEO of AticcoLab.

What are the sectors where more startups have been developed this 2022?

The world of startups does not stop growing and, today, many of these companies lead the evolution of the economic sector. Precisely, at AticcoLab, they are in charge of promoting the innovative ecosystem for entrepreneurs and startups. For this reason, they have made a ranking taking into account the startups with which AticcoLab works, through its acceleration program and corporate programs that are developed in collaboration with other institutions such as DAS Seguros España, Fundación Cellnex or Barcelona Activa, and are programs that are aimed at specific sectors. With this, of the startups that have started or concluded any of the programs in 2022 (around 70), the top 5 sectors where the most startups have been developed in AticcoLab this last year would be:

Wellness and Health

Health is one of the main concerns of society and having a specialist within reach of your mobile helps to resolve your doubts quickly. In fact, 55% of Spaniards prefer to make medical consultations online, according to Cignasalud. Among the wellness and health startups, there is OROI, a platform with virtual reality therapeutic content aimed at generating emotional well-being and training cognitive functions in the elderly.

Next Generation EU 03

The third edition of the report has already been published “NextGenerationEU Guide, for the industry to better understand and take advantage of its opportunities”. As usual, it has been published by the EAIC (European Association of Innovation Consultants), of which FI Group is a part.

The report, which once again included the participation of the FI Group, explains how each of the 24 European countries distributes the almost 326 billion European aid granted in their National Recovery and Resilience Plans.

The latest update of the report highlights the maximum financial contribution that corresponds to each Member State, calculated taking into account the growth in real GDP in 2020 and the accumulated growth in real GDP in the period 2020-2021.

Most Member States saw their maximum financial contribution in the aid component of their Recovery plans decrease, due to changes in the calculations made in June 2022, based on real GDP growth data. The only countries that saw their funds increased were Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria Y Portugal.

Main updates and news reported by Member States

  • The implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Plans is in full swing: calls have been launched to receive proposals, projects are being evaluated and aid agreements are being signed.
  • Member States have started work on the review of plans, following the decision made on June 30, 2022 on the final distribution of funds; some of the new plans are still being evaluated (for example: more funds in Lithuania to boost energy independence, renewable energy and cybersecurity).
  • The report also highlights the main calls for proposals launched in each of the 24 Member States (for digitization, innovation, circular economy, etc.), both those active right now and those planned soon.
  • Some of the Member States (Finland for example) have already distributed all the funds allocated to them in their Recovery and Resilience Plans.

Alejandro Álvarez, Grants Director at FI Group, as well as a member of the EAIC Board and coordinator of this report, highlights that it is a unique initiative at a European level. “We have been following the development of the Recovery and Resilience Plans since the start of the negotiations and have managed to offer comprehensive information on the opportunities that are emerging across Europe. Building on the success of this pioneering initiative, we are looking to broaden the focus of the report to provide an even more valuable overview of the opportunities for all key players in the industry.” explains Alvarez.

OVHcloud has recently included the option to use Bring Your Own License or BYOL in its portfolio of Nutanix on OVHcloud solutions.

The Nutanix users they can now bring their existing Nutanix Cloud Platform licenses to dedicated OVHcloud Hosted Private Cloud infrastructures, making it easier for them to transition to the cloud. OVHcloud, which recently received the Nutanix EMEA Service Provider of the Year award, continues to expand its offer of Nutanix on OVHcloud solutions with the addition of the BYOL offer to complement the existing pack offer.

Existing Nutanix customers and partners can now bring their Nutanix Cloud Platform licenses to Nutanix-certified High Grade HCI Intel dedicated servers, benefiting from license portability and application migration transparency. Customers’ Nutanix hyper-converged environment (HCI) is pre-installed in just hours and ready to use with their custom infrastructure.

The Nutanix on OVHcloud solution enables a faster migration of on-premises applications to the cloud, while benefiting from OVHcloud infrastructures. With a low carbon footprint and best-in-class PUE and WUE indices, the OVHcloud infrastructure stands out for its global sustainability, thanks to a circular group approach that allows for maximum optimization of the server’s life cycle. In addition, OVHcloud data centers meet high data protection and security standards.

“We are delighted to continue our strong partnership with Nutanix, addressing new use cases and providing new business opportunities for our ecosystem partners”says Sylvain Rouri, Chief Sales Officer at OVHcloud.

User needs

This new offering allows OVHcloud to meet the needs of users, covering seasonal peaks in infrastructure demand and developing disaster recovery plans (DRPs), all while providing a cost-effective solution. Like the Nutanix on OVHcloud bundle offer, the BYOL offer consists of 27 variants of dedicated servers and Nutanix High Grade HCI certified servers based on Intel processors and includes inbound and outbound traffic, helping to improve OPEX for significant savings compared to non-hyperconverged infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

“As a company, we continually demonstrate the power of strong partnerships. OVHcloud already has an excellent understanding of our technology with its existing Nutanix on OVHcloud solution. For this reason, it makes sense for us to expand our relationship to include a BYOL offering.”says Dom Poloniecki, Worldwide Sales Chief of Staff and Head of Sales Strategy & Operations at Nutanix. “The real winners here are our common customers and partners who are looking for cost-effective ways to scale to an OPEX model in the cloud, but who, to date, have not yet made the switch from an on-premises environment. With OVHcloud and Nutanix, they have the best of both worlds.”

The Nutanix on OVHcloud solution is a scalable and ready HCI platform to use that is offered both as a pack and BYOL, and is based on a dedicated Hosted Private Cloud OVHcloud infrastructure certified by Nutanix. It is now available online in EMEA and Canada, with data centers located in Canada, France, Germany and the UK.
