Our origins speak for us

Founded in 2010 by Xavier Pladellorens (CEO) and Àngel Corcuera (CPO and Co-founder), we received the definitive push by winning the SeedRocket competition, bringing in backing from some of the most recognised business angels in the country, such as François Derbaix (Toprural), Luis Martin Cabiedes (Cabiedes & Partners), David Tomás (Cyberclick).

In 2015, thanks to the excellent future prospects of the company, important venture capital companies such as Samaipata (Spain) and P101 (Italy) as well as Grupo Mediaset were added to our list of shareholders. The total amount invested in the company is 7 million euros.

As friends and shareholders, Xavier Pladellorens and Àngel Corcuera continue developing Deporvillage successfully in Europe, having already established themselves in Italy, France and Portugal. In 2017, we reached 35 million euros, strengthening our leadership in Spain and increasing sales overseas. In 2018, we will open our doors to more than 200 countries worldwide, with the launch of our English and German websites.
