Sisal launch program in support of startups
GoBeyond, the Sisal program, developed in collaboration with CVC Capital Partners, to support the ecosystem of innovation and startups with a social impact.
Now in its fifth edition, GoBeyond has rapidly evolved as a real innovation platform for the Company: in this edition the startup competition is enriched with new contents to support young entrepreneurs: an acceleration path will be made available to a startup for women and, starting from 2022, a digital hub will be created, in collaboration with Feltrinelli Education, to develop the mindset to create new sustainable entrepreneurs with a social vocation.
The opening of applications through the gobeyond.info portal was commented by Francesco Durante, CEO of Sisal: “Every year I experience the start of a new edition of GoBeyond as a moment of great value, because I firmly believe that support for young people and their ideas is essential to look with more optimism at the economic and social progress of our country. To build a more responsible future, it is time to go further, enhancing those innovative ideas that help society to improve. I believe that companies like Sisal must actively and constantly commit themselves to the progress of society and to do so it is necessary to anticipate the needs of the community. With this spirit, this year, we have decided to look beyond and support the development of female businesses to further reduce the gender gap and actively contribute to the development of new business ideas “.
The concept behind the 2021 edition of Gobeyond was designed to actively contribute to the improvement and well-being of the community using cutting-edge technologies.
