Tucumán, August 3, 2015. Banco Tucumán Grupo Macro and the university Universidad del Norte Santo Tomás de Aquino (UNSTA) awarded prizes under the "Entrepreneurship and Innovation First University Program", sponsored by the newspaper La Gaceta.

The program is the first of its kind in the Province and was conducted in three stages: 1° nomination and selection of the awardees, 2° training and 3° prizes to the best grades. The last stage involved the assessment by a specialized Committee that resolved to award prizes as follows: 1° prize (AR$25,000) "Tremera"; 2° prize (AR$20,000) "Nueva Pulpa"; and 3° prize (AR$15,000) "Regionales Los Alisos".

The prize awarding ceremony was held on Monday August 3 at 5:00 pm at the premises of Fundación Macro located at 24 de septiembre 719, San Miguel de Tucumán. The ceremony was attended by the director of Banco Tucumán Grupo Macro, Mr. Claudio Cerezo, and the Dean of UNSTA, Mr. José Luis Alcaide.

The goal of this contest is to foster the development, promotion and enlargement of micro ventures by means of the provision of training, economic support and mentorship so that beneficiaries may implement their own business projects and travel the road that will lead them to have their own small company (Pyme). Participants attended ten courses during a three-month term on subjects including communication, marketing, RSE, e-commerce and negotiations.

"We believe that being a financial institution we have great chances to collaborate with Argentina conducting our business in a sustainable manner and with a long term vision. Accordingly, we will continue supporting enterprises and entrepreneurs as engines for local growth", states Milagro Medrano, Manager of Institutional Relations of Banco Macro.
