The beginnings

Inova was founded in 2003 with the aim of providing our clients with cutting-edge solutions capable of generating value.

We began by focusing on understanding innovation and how it could be systematised and optimised.

We later collaborated in the implementation of Lean Manufacturing process optimisation methodologies in automotive companies.

We then moved into the world of sustainability, tackling projects to reduce polluting emissions linked to maritime and port traffic and electric mobility initiatives.

 

 

Inova grows

We help hundreds of SMEs to transform their business models, generate collaborative networks, digitise, find funding, innovate and improve.

We play a decisive role in the origin of the Galician entrepreneurial ecosystem and we design and manage acceleration programmes for innovative projects.

However, learning is the main thing, what really makes the project experience significant progress and go in the right direction.

That is our approach. And that is how we approach our work with entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship programmes, accelerators, institutions and specialised investors.

By the way, our services do not include a coffee machine, table football and motivational posters, but everything else.

Inova nowadays

Proposals to meet the challenges of the market

El auge de la innovación y el emprendimiento, la necesidad de transferir conocimiento y tecnología, la urgencia de la sostenibilidad y de la economía circular, y la aceleración de la transformación digital nos han llevado a incorporar a nuestro equipo nuevos conocimientos y talento, y a reorganizar y ampliar las propuestas que ofrecemos a nuestros clientes.

We like what we do and that is our main asset

We are twenty professionals surrounded by an extensive ecosystem of partners and collaborators, so we have a rich diversity of knowledge and skills that allow us to have a comprehensive understanding of our clients’ problems and offer them global solutions. And we love what we do. 

GALICIAN WITH AN UNIVERSAL VOCATION

    • Inova is a company born and based in Galicia, but it works with a global perspective to serve national and international clients.
    • Its clients include SMEs, large companies and conglomerates, sectoral associations and clusters, national, regional and municipal public administrations, port authorities, technology centres and research centres.

INDUSTRY, PART OF OUR DNA

    • Alberto Casal, founding partner of Inova, came from developing his professional career as a manager in different companies in the Galician automotive sector.
    • Inova itself collaborated in the creation of CEAGA, the sector’s cluster, and BFAuto, its vertical accelerator for innovative startups.
    • Throughout its existence and until today, Inova has maintained a close link with the automotive industry and has been opening up to other industrial sectors such as metalworking, food and shipbuilding.

INNOVATION, OUR IDENTITY

ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND TRANSFER

Proof of this is the balanced composition of our staff between men and women, a circumstance that has helped us to receive the recognition that highlights the companies committed to Gender Equality awarded by the Vigo Free Trade Zone.
