Gender Smart Investing and Innovability. Energy is everywhere
On the occasion of the Social Enterprise Open Camp, Enel – strategic partner and supporter of the start-up and social enterprise ecosystem – launched a challenge: (1) 20 scholarships for the participation in Social Enterprise Open Camp and (2) a possibility for a collaboration agreement with Enel.
The purpose of the challenge “Gender Smart Investing and Innovability. Energy is everywhere” was to find innovative and scalable solutions with the potential to promote radical changes in the energy sector, amplifying the social impact, and achieving gender equality and empowerment.
With the challenge, 20 social entrepreneurs had the possibility to both participate in the Social Enterprise Open Camp and to present their business idea to a jury composed by representatives from Enel (Chaired by Maria Cristina Papetti together with Fabrizio Furbini, Silvia Saddi, and Maurizio Macera).
