The third edition of our Awards comes to an end. Throughout the entire competition, we have shared the enthusiasm and desire to change the world of the 27 participating projects. From these projects, three winners have been chosen. Let us introduce them to you.
The third edition of the Fundación MAPFRE Awards for Social Innovation took place in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, at a time when it is essential that we all work towards the wellbeing of our society. Social Innovation has proved to be a transformative tool for the world we live in, and today it is more necessary than ever. The projects that took part in the Awards are a fine example of this.
At this year’s edition, as in previous ones, the success of the call demonstrated the huge interest that social innovation arouses, and confirms that today’s entrepreneurs have understood that business and economy can also be of service to society. For everyone who has been with us throughout the selection process of the winning projects, we have been adapting to the different scenarios dictated by the current situation, making our format more flexible and using the resources offered by technology to ensure you could be with us at the grand final.
The third edition of the MAPFRE Awards for Social Innovation demonstrates our continued commitment to supporting dedicated entrepreneurship in order to multiply its positive and transformative impact in three areas: Improving Health and Digital Technology (e-Health), Innovation in Insurance, and Sustainable Mobility and Road Safety.
The three geographical regions around which the Awards were based in this third edition were Brazil, the rest of Latin America, and Europe.
We reinforce our commitment to social innovation and, despite the difficulties, we continue to move forward. We hereby present the nine finalists selected in the three semifinals of Latin America, Brazil and Madrid for the grand final of our awards.
Willingness to change things, certainty that the world and humans are the true engine of the economy, inspiration to generate innovative ideas. With enthusiasm and drive, 26 projects have positioned themselves on the starting line towards the semi-finals. We introduce you to them below.
