Third edition of the Fundación MAPFRE Awards for Social Innovation

We reaffirm our commitment to promoting social innovation

A new opportunity to launch transformational projects A new opportunity to launch transformational projects


Our Awards for Social Innovation have become an unstoppable force. 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.

We have opened the third edition of the Fundación MAPFRE Awards for Social Innovation as proof of our support for entrepreneurship and in order to boost the transformative impact of their work.

If you believe in social innovation as a tool for change and you are developing a transformative and socially responsible initiative in which technology provides a game-changing boost, why not submit it to us. You have until 29 November 2019 to enter.

The projects that can take part in the competition must come from the three geographical regions which form part of the awards in this third edition: Brazil, Latin America (except Brazil) and Europe.

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. For this competition, these aspects have been concentrated into three categories:

  • Health Improvement and digital technology (e-Health).
  • Innovation in insurance.
  • Sustainable Mobility and road safety.

In this third edition of the Awards, once again, out of all the projects submitted only 27 will be chosen for their clear impact and viability, 9 in each of the three geographical regions included. 3 projects per region will be chosen from the 27 semi-finalists, and they will go on 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 initiative.

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 to help the project leaders successfully demonstrate how their initiatives could have an impact, they will receive support during the competition in the form of online mentoring and expert coaching.
