Loyal Guru named “one to watch” in Seedtable’s high-growth tech list

The Barcelona tech sector in Europe booming. In 2022, Barcelona raised $1.7 Billion in capital (after raising $1.6 Billion in 2021).

Barcelona, [Thursday 4th May, 2023] Loyal Guru, the leading retail-specific loyalty platfom, has been lauded in Seedtable’s 69 Barcelona Startups to Watch (and Work for) in 2023 list.

Defined as an “eclectic mix of companies experiencing rapid growth to smaller, creative startups”, the revered list is a who’s-who of Barcelonas’s disruptive tech sector.

The list is based on public and proprietary data. We look at thousands of different companies in Europe and multiple data points; funding amount, team size, etc, and assign a score to them we call SeedScore.

Close to half of those mentioned on the list, specifically 28 of the 69, are SaaS organisations, with 25 of the 29 tackling the B2B market. Marketplaces get 12 mentions, whilst AI shows up in 5 of the industry descriptions across a series of sectors.

Nauta Capital, which invested in Loyal Guru’s series A, are invested in 5 other companies from the list, specifically Holded, Lodgify, Scytl, Landbot and Emjoy.

I’m proud that Loyal Guru has been recognized amongst so many of its peers in the tech industry. The companies represented on the list are all unique, but we have at least 3 things in common: we’re challenging the status quo, we are tackling problems from fresh angles with the power of technology, and we’re doing it out of Barcelona.

Borja Sanfeliu, co-founder & CEO at Loyal Guru

The Barcelona tech sector in Europe is booming. In 2022, Barcelona raised $1.7 Billion in capital (after raising $1.6 Billion in 2021).

Barcelona’s emergence as a tech hub can be traced back to 2012, according to research from Harvard. The 2,000 startups here already up and running make Barcelona one of the top startup hubs in Europe. Barcelona is the 2nd best place to establish a startup in Europe and 5th EU startup hub.

Seedtable compiles startup lists across Europe, by country and city.
