The authorities of both entities attended the awarding ceremony held on May 28, 2014 on 6:00 pm at the Salón Auditorium of Diario Los Andes, located at Primitivo de La Reta 1042, City of Mendoza. The competition, which was broadcasted by Channel 9 of Mendoza and announced by Diario Los Andres, was fully funded by Banco Macro and implemented by Fundación Impulsar.

This joint initiative of Fundación Impulsar and Banco Macro began in 2013 and is composed of three stages: 1° Training of entrepreneurs in the formulation of business plans; 2° Selection and award of monetary prices to the three best business plans; and 3° One-year free mentorship to ten entrepreneur projects.

The First Prize Project was awarded to Malva bolsos y carteras, that received the amount of ARS$ 20,000. The second Prize Project was awarded to Limón Glasé, a bakery entrepreneurship, the amount of ARS$ 18,000 and the Third Prize Project was awarded to Luny-Decoración Infantil that received the amount of ARS$12,000.

The evaluation board took into account the different aspects of each of the entrepreneurships: business plan feasibility, its innovation and capacity to generate future employment, the qualities of the entrepreneur and skills to develop the project. These tools will allow them to formalize their own Small Company (PYME).

This is the second time that Banco Macro and Fundación Impulsar joined efforts to support and promote entrepreneurship through the "Banco Macro - Fundación Impulsar Entrepreneurship Competition" in nine provinces.
