Bankia Escolta València
The Bankia Escolta València programme promotes music education and the fight against school failure through music.

In 2017, Bankia reinforced its sponsorship of activities related to innovation, such as the Atípics programme and the Digitalizadora. .

The Digitalizadora deserves special mention. It consisted of a digital immersion programme started by Bankia and Insomnia that gave business owners and managers insight, through 10 training sessions, into the main technological verticals that are expected to affect companies in the near future. Robotics, 3D printing and artificial intelligence were among the subjects addressed during the programme.

These actions manifest the bank’s support for activities aimed at developing new ways of doing things that involve technology and that have a positive impact on society.

All this is without neglecting its support for purely solidarity activities. For several years now, Bankia has been sponsoring activities that help improve the environment in the spheres of culture, sport and business.
