The IE Foundation celebrated the fourth edition of its Awards for Social Innovation. These awards, which are organized in collaboration with the MAPFRE Foundation, recognize innovative solutions for social impact in three categories: 1) health improvement and digital technology (e-Health), 2) innovation in insurance (Insurtech) and 3) sustainable mobility and road safety.
IE and the MAPFRE Foundation work together to identify promising projects in Europe, Brazil, and the rest of Latin America, giving them the support they need to fulfill their potential for social transformation.
The 4th edition got nine finalists and three winners. Although these last two editions were held in online format due to the pandemic, the profound impact of the projects continues to thrive.
The Grand Final of the fourth edition of the Awards took place on May 12th. Nine startups presented incredible projects to win 30,000 euros to take them to the next level. This edition witnessed startups offering outstanding projects. Some of the finalist startups provided solutions to improve health during pregnancy, improve accessibility for people with physical diversity, or create a non-invasive artificial pancreas for diabetes.
