The CRE100DO Foundation
Nine years ago, Fundación Innovación Bankinter, ICEX-Spain Export and Investments, and Círculo de Empresarios launched the CRE100DO program, which has now become a consolidated foundation. Its objective is to promote business excellence by bringing together and supporting excellent companies in what we call Intermediate-Sized Enterprises (ETI). These companies, due to their characteristics, are capable of improving the competitiveness of our productive model. The CRE100DO Foundation consists of a community of 135 excellent companies that have, among other things, had a clear vision, transformed themselves, internationalized, and innovated, serving as an example for smaller companies in their journey towards excellence.
The companies that are part of the CRE100DO Foundation have experienced a 28.3% growth in their turnover in the past year, surpassing the national average by 18 percentage points (10.3%).
