Our interest in promoting any initiative that can add to and address this unprecedented situation, is united with our passion for technology and its capacity to transform the world. That is why we have joined this platform that has been conceived from the technological ecosystem, from the start-up investment fund Samaipata and the technological company Vector ITC, to give visibility to projects in the field of technology and data analysis that have originated as a consequence of the coronavirus crisis.
The initiative #StopCorona seeks to give them visibility and demonstrate, always from a solidarity perspective, that ICTs are also useful in this fight, for example to stop the number of infections, to raise awareness or to predict the evolution of the virus.
The projects that have joined #StopCorona are led by start-ups and digital companies, and from a solidarity perspective, they aim at providing their knowledge and experience with the intention of contributing to winning the health battle against COVID-19.
To publicize the different initiatives #StopCorona proposes a non-for-profit, nationwide challenge open to projects in one of the three categories: data analysis, technological solutions and other solidarity projects.
Through a public vote, the 100 most voted projects will be chosen, giving them access to a basic package of #StopCoronaChallenge advantages. Among these, a committee of experts will choose the 6 winners (2 per category) who will receive a package of advantages offered by the partners exclusively to development their projects.
From Fundación MAPFRE, as partners, we offer:
- Visibility and dissemination through our innovation and media networks.
- Visibility to potential sources of finance.
- Participation with our social volunteers if required by any of the winning initiatives and always within the Fundación MAPFRE's groups and lines of action.
- Mentoring the winning projects with the intention of promoting and strengthening their proposals.
- And a Fundación MAPFRE Award valued at 3,000 euros to the project that best represents the values and objectives of Fundación MAPFRE.
This crisis has emphasized the importance of merging solidarity and technology to offer new solutions that contribute to containing the virus. At Fundación MAPFRE we believe in this path and we are promoting this union also aiming towards recovery. That's why we encourage you to vote, propose or present your project to fight against the coronavirus before June 15th. Find out more at www.stopcorona.es and submit your application at.
