Barcelona-based startup incubator Antai Venture Builder (AVB) is recruiting founders to launch two new companies. One will be an automotive brand called Insurtech, the other a yet-to-be-named proptech/fintech brand.
In a LinkedIn post, AVB chairman and co-founder Miguel Vicente (LinkedIn profile) wrote that Insurtech is seeking a chief executive officer (CEO), chief operating officer (COO) and chief product officer (CPO). Experience in consulting, insurance and/or high-growth startups is required.
The unnamed proptech/fintech project is looking for a CEO and COO. Consulting, real estate and/or startup experience is expected. Vicente did not respond to a request for further details.
This space is worth watching because AVB is brought significant classified brands and models to Spain. It birthed mobile marketplace Wallapop, reverse-auction auto portal CarNovo and property site ProntoPiso, among others.
Funds for these new ventures likely come from the €20 million ($23.3 million U.S.) funding AVB raised in September 2018. The digital venture capital arm of Banco Sabadell InnoCells and insurance firm Mutua Madrileña, each invested €5 million ($5.8million U.S.). At the time, digital news source Kippel01 reported Antai VB’s valuation as €100 million.
