Despunte is a coop based in Galicia (Spain) dedicated to design and engineering. Formed by two engineers who decided to launch their own business in 2021 after collaborating on a variety of projects together.

We are a social economy cooperative society advocating for collaboration, continuous improvement, social responsibility, transparency, and proximity.

We actively engage in various entrepreneurship and innovation initiatives, utilizing creative design as our primary tool to evolve alongside our collaborators and clients.
