This joint initiative of Fundación Impulsar and Banco Tucumán Grupo 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 a plant that manufactures artisanal floors, that received the amount of ARS$ 20,000 and a one year mentorship. The second Prize Project was awarded to Bagpan, an enterprise engaged in the production of ecological and recyclable paper advertising bags, the amount of ARS$ 18,000 a one year mentorship, and the Third Prize Project was awarded to Granja San Rafael, egg production plant, that received the amount of ARS$12,000 and a one year mentorship.

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