Helena Torras
Founder & Managing Partner

Serial entrepreneur on tech startups, investor and member of the board on innovative companies.


Helena has always been thinking out of the box, looking for creative solutions to traditional issues with a scalability focus. When being a consultant, thinking on new ways to solve problems and then implementing her proposal to evidence it worked out. 12 years ago, she started bringing the same mindset to the tech startup ecosystem, where she has had several “hats” allowing her to experience it from different sides of the table.

Serial entrepreneur, involved on several startups as co-founder or member of the entrepreneur team, she has established operations in US, UK & Spain and been Board Director both in Spain and at the US.


Her passion for tech startups led her to invest on more than 9. She has also been Board Director/Advisory Board in some promising startups. Experiences like these, confirmed the importance of the governing bodies on companies, which led her to receive training through Executive Programs (UCLA, IESE, HARVARD) focused on how Board Directors can bring value to companies. She is now independent board director on a Fund of Funds of Venture Capital.

Eager and committed, Helena is always willing to share and contribute. She belongs to the Governing Board of BarcelonaTechCity, and to the Advisory Board of ISMA and Collider (Tech Transfer from MWC) and is speaker in tech events. Moreover, she is committed with diversity, which has led her to belong to Governing Bodies of associations with this mission. 

On weekends you’ll find her surrounded of nature, dedicating her time to her biggest Project: her family.
