Santander X aims to support people running their own business and help small enterprises create opportunity, take root and grow. 32 entrepreneurs and Santander X 100 members joined the six winners of the ‘Santander X Global Challenge | Cyberprotect the future’ at the Web Summit 2023 in Lisbon.
Today’s challenges require ardent, proactive and innovative solutions. With that in mind, Santander X once again took part in what is considered Europe's top entrepreneurship event, Web Summit.
At the Summit, Santander-backed entrepreneurs enjoyed breakout skills and other high-quality sessions. What's more, they made the most of the networking that comes with being a member of Santander X 100, an exclusive and global entrepreneurship community for top Santander X projects that connects them with the resources they need to grow, such as advice and training, capital, clients, talent and others.
Lisbon was also the setting for the awards ceremony of the cyber security challenge, a global competition that Santander launched last year for startups and scaleups that want to bolster the cyber security ecosystem. The six Santander X Global Challenge | Cyberprotect the Future winners stood out for their innovative solutions to help people stay safe in an ever-growing, digitalized world.
At Santander, our purpose is to help people and businesses prosper. Santander Universities has been playing a key role in fulfilling that purpose for over 27 years through support to education, entrepreneurship and employment. Because together we can build a more diverse, inclusive and sustainable future.
