October 17, 2016
Communications Colunga Foundation

On Sunday, October 16, applications for "Emprende el Viaje" were closed, a call that opened its registration on August 30 and that managed to gather 229 innovative initiatives focused on children and adolescents.

The Colunga Foundation team and the external evaluating jury will review each of these initiatives and on Thursday 20 will notify the 30 teams that will be selected to participate in the learning workshops.

After that, the coordination will be done so that participants from regions can travel to the learning workshops.

What are the workshops?

The aim of the workshops is to provide tools to the selected teams, so that they can improve their proposals and are better prepared to apply for the final financing table that will take place on January 12 and 13. Remember that the Innovative Fund will deliver up to 25 million pesos per project, to a maximum of 8 winners.

From October 25 to 27 and from November 22 to 24, these two days of theoretical and practical practical work will take place between 9:00 am and 6:30 pm. In addition, between both days the selected teams will be able to meet with different leaders of the Colunga Network, with the aim of sharing learnings and experiences in the field of social entrepreneurship.

Scholarship for regional projects

The selected projects, which have regional teams, will be supported with a scholarship that covers accommodation and transfer, to participate in the workshops and also for the subsequent stages. Additionally, the workshops include the delivery of work materials and complete food for all attendees.

This Thursday do not forget to be attentive to the email and phone, because if your project is selected, coordination will be made so that two people from the team travel to Santiago to the workshops.
