Aid and recognition of innovation

El Business Angels o inversor privado son natural persons with extensive knowledge of certain sectors and with investment capacity, who promote the development of business projects with high growth potential in its early stages of life, providing capital and added value to management.

Los inversores privados ayudan a cubrir la falta de financiación con que se encuentran los emprendedores en las etapas iniciales (que se asocian a elevados niveles de riesgo y falta de liquidez); se diferencian de los inversores tradicionales y del capital riesgo, en su implicación en la gestión de la empresa.

Al igual que las entidades de capital riesgo, se trata de inversores que apuestan por un proyecto empresarial, sin involucrarse en el día a día, pero aportando un valor añadido. Además de disposición de capital, estos inversores privados suelen tener conocimientos elevados en los sectores en los que invierten. Estos conocimientos, su capacidad de gestión y su red de contactos, son muy valiosos para impulsar el desarrollo de proyectos empresariales que tienen alto potencial de crecimiento, a cambio de una rentabilidad a medio plazo.

As a legal form, they usually adopt that of a limited company. These investors usually organize themselves by forming networks. In some cases with the aim of converting in others as a form of cooperation in general.

Main features:

  • They invest their own money
  • It is invested in the initial stage of the life of a company
  • Your investment decisions may be other than strictly financial motivations (job satisfaction, etc.)
  • They invest in areas close to their place of residence
  • The amounts invested are much lower than the average dedicated by venture capital entities in each operation
  • Profitability is generally lower than that obtained by venture capital entities

El Sello de la Pyme Innovadora se crea en virtud de la Orden ECC/1087/2015, de 5 de junio, por la que se regula la obtención del sello de Pequeña y Mediana Empresa Innovadora y se crea y regula el Registro de la Pequeña y Mediana Empresa Innovadora (BOE de 11 de junio de 2015).

Es un reconocimiento que se concede a pequeñas y medianas empresas que cuentan con un gran carácter innovador para que estas pymes puedan aprovechar y combinar incentivos fiscales que, sin este sello, son incompatibles.

The objective is the development of an environment favorable to the I+D en las pymes so that innovation is systematically incorporated into the production model of our SMEs.

This new certification aims to expand the bonuses and tax benefits to these small and medium-sized companies, as well as to bring them closer to public procurement more easily.

How to get the stamp?

The application for the Seal can be made by SMEs that are in any of the following circumstances:

  • Haber recibido financiación pública en los últimos 3 años (sin revocación) a través de:
    • Convocatorias públicas del VI Plan Nacional de Investigación Científica, Desarrollo e Innovación Tecnológica o del Plan Estatal de Investigación Científica y Técnica y de Innovación.
    • Ayudas a la realización de proyectos I+D+i del CDTI
    • Ayudas del 7º Programa Marco de I+D+i o del Programa Horizonte 2020, de la Unión Europea.
  • Haber demostrado su carácter innovador con su actividad:
    • Porque posee una patente propia en explotación desde hace menos de 5 años
    • Porque haya obtenido en los 3 últimos años un Informe Motivado Vinculante o IMV favorable
  • Haber demostrado su capacidad de innovación con alguna de estas certificaciones:
    • Joven Empresa Innovadora (JEI), (AENOR EA0043)
    • Pequeña o microempresa Innovadora, (AENOR EA0047)
    • Sistemas de gestión de la I+D+i, (Norma UNE 166.002)

A Registry is created in which all innovative SMEs will be recorded. Registration will be carried out at the request of the interested SME, carrying out the procedures electronically. These are: declaration as SME; not having had total revocation of justified public financial aid; be up to date with the Administration (Treasury and SS) and justification of the condition of innovator.

Ventajas: ¿para qué sirve el sello?

Con el Sello, las pymes pueden obtener mejores ventajas fiscales por su inversión en I+D+i, como:

  1. Compatibilizar incentivos que no son compatibles para el resto de las empresas:
  2. Hacer uso del Sello con fines publicitarios y comerciales, ya que mejora la imagen de la marca
  3. Acceso a ciertas ayudas, financiación o mecanismos para los que es necesario el sello, como la participación en licitaciones de Compra Pública de Innovación, o la Línea de financiación ICO.

Cómo conseguir el Sello Pyme Innovadora

La solicitud de registro como se realiza desde la web del Ministerio de Innovación, de forma telemática y sin coste. La empresa debe estar dada de alta en el RUS (Registro Unificado de Solicitantes) para iniciar la solicitud del sello.
