The adventure of our Awards for Social Innovation is unstoppable. Since we launched this initiative, the response from the community of social entrepreneurs has been unprecedented and the impact of the finalist projects has been so significant that it has encouraged us to continue moving forward on this path.
During the first two editions we have seen how social entrepreneurship combined with digital technologies can provide simple solutions to real-life problems. The overwhelming interest in our previous calls for applications demonstrates the major interest that social innovation awakens in us and confirms that today's entrepreneurs understand that the economy and the business world can be at the service of society.
With this third edition of the Fundación MAPFRE Awards for Social Innovation we continue to support a committed entrepreneurship in order to boost its impact towards transformation.
The objective of the Fundación MAPFRE Awards for Social Innovation is to facilitate the development of proposals that, by their very nature, address and improve specific aspects of the world in which we live. In this edition, these aspects focus on three categories:
- Health Improvement and digital technology (e-Health).
- Innovation in insurance.
- Sustainable Mobility and road safety.
The three geographical regions which the awards for this third edition are organized into are: Brazil, Latin America (except Brazil) and Europe.
Out of all the semi-finalists 3 per region will be chosen to compete in the grand final. Among the 9 finalists, only 3 will be chosen as the winners, with one per category. The three winning projects will receive a €30,000 euro cash prize to help boost their initiatives.
As well as the funding for the winners, the semi-finalist, finalist and winning projects will receive promotion and exposure. Throughout the competition they will be given publicity to help boost their visibility to potential investors. In addition, in order for the project leaders to successfully demonstrate how their initiatives will have an impact, they will receive online mentoring and expert coaching during the competition process.
All of us share in writing the future. Social innovation unites technology with objectives that directly affect people's wellbeing and improves their quality of life. To find out about the areas in which we want to work with you, click here and carry on reading.
