A jury of experts nominated the winners of "Welfare, che Impresa!", the call for startups to present innovative community welfare projects capable of creating networks and generating social and employment impacts.
Fondazione Snam, which promotes the competition together with Fondazione Italiana Accenture, Fondazione Bracco, UBI Banca and Fondazione CON IL SUD, has awarded Play ReCH with a donation of € 20,000 and Taller delle Terre with a contribution of € 5,000. The other winners are Mammacult, Cartiera, Il Convento delle Idee and ReCreo – “rete di rigenerazione rurale”. The awards also include funding and incubation and acceleration routes.
Marco Alverà, CEO of Snam and Vice President of Fondazione Snam, said: “The social commitment of companies and their ability to create connections with the territories in which they operate are crucial factors for the sustainable development of our country. By supporting highly successful initiatives such as Welfare, che Impresa! we want to encourage the birth of new companies and new forms of youth entrepreneurship capable of generating a social impact”.

Of the 94 ideas eligible for the first phase, 61% come from North and Central Italy, and 39% from Southern regions.
