We are a group of companies making an impact made up of a team of more than 150 people committed to solving social and environmental challenges.
We come up with and create projects that flourish, sharing the economic value created with the teams that make it all possible and allow us to reinvest the profits in new and evermore ambitious projects. This is the virtuous circle we work in each and every day. Plus, we operate as catalytical capital by financing the first steps of different projects, taking on the initial risk to later add other co-investors along the way. Likewise, we work as the initial anchor investor in the investment vehicles we create and manage, mobilizing ours and third-party capital towards the impact.
We focus on entrepreneurship, the development of sustainable urban environments, investment, education and consultancy, accompanying organisations towards positive impact.
a Story of Impact
Zubi Group is the result of the evolution and growth of Zubi Labs, an impact venture builder founded in 2014 with the goal of creating companies making an impact to solve social and environmental challenges.
Our founder and President is outstanding entrepreneur Iker Marcaide, who also founded Flywire, the first company of Spanish origin to be listed on Nasdaq.
2014 - Zubi Labs was created
Iker Marcaide founded Zubi Labs in 2014 with the aim of being able to create companies making an impact along with co-founding managers and finance these companies in areas such as the fight against climate change, the circular economy, talent development and solutions for groups at risk of exclusion.
2016 - First adventure: Imagine Montessori School
The Imagine Montessori School in Valencia was created to nourish talent for a better world. It combines the complete content of the British curriculum and the benefits of Montessori teaching methods with a special focus on sustainability.
2017 - The La Pinada Neighborhood project began
The first eco-neighborhood which is being co-created along with its future residents. Currently in the design and approval process, it has been acknowledged by Europe as a pioneer in the fight against climate change.

2021 - Zubi Capital is created
Following COVID, we expanded our business creation activity to begin investing in third-party companies. And that’s how Zubi Capital came along. It created the very first impact fund aimed at Venture Debt in Europe and earmarked to finance the growth of companies making a social and environmental impact, mobilizing capital to invest in third-party companies that help build a better future.
2022 - Zubi Group is founded
The growth of all the companies led to the creation of Zubi Group, which is structured into five areas of business with a firm purpose: solving challenges for a better future.
