In addition, Mora de la Orden will also inform EMERGE about companies with good growth potential that have not yet joined MAPA, according to a statement. Following its investment, the EMERGE Fund then registers those companies with MAPA, in order to obtain additional financing or to realise a sale. Companies that the EMERGE Fund has invested in and that could benefit from joining the MAPA market, either from securing new financing or from a sale to other investors, will be referred to MAPA.
