The new hub is consolidating its presence in Spain, following the opening of an office in Madrid in 2017. In Spain, the company has carried out many transactions and investments for companies such as Glovo, Wallapop, Ravenpack, Lingokids and Cooltra.
As Moreno pointed out, "In our more than 20 years on the tech scene, we’ve advised and invested in some of the world's most visionary entrepreneurs and successful companies such as Spotify, Klarna, Patreon, Slack and Revolut, to name a few. We are now on a mission to help technology leaders build a better future, and to take the tech industry by storm with our new centre in Malaga.
