"Banco Macro - Fundación Impulsar Entrepreneurship Competition" Award Stage (Misiones)

Posadas, June 16, 2014. Banco Macro and Fundación Impulsar announced the winners of the Second Entrepreneurship Competition. The authorities of both entities attended the awarding ceremony held on Friday June 13, 2014 on 5:00pm at the Salón Auditorium of IPESMI, located at Salta 1968, Posadas. The competition 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 "Doña Rogelia" engaged in the production of pickles and home-made jam, that received the amount of ARS$ 20,000 and one year tutorship. The second Prize Project was awarded to "ViverArte", a plant nursery that produces native, exotic and other trees, the amount of ARS$ 18,000 and one year tutorship. Third Prize Project was awarded to "Las Déboras, Guerreras del tejido", engaged in clothing design, received the amount of ARS$12,000 and one year tutorship.

The evaluation board, which was composed of Jorge Romero (Universidad Gaton Dachary); Eleonora Nobile and María Inés Khoury (Fundación Impulsar); Silvia Celano and Diego Rabolini (Banco Macro), 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 was 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.
