The teams will begin this week the Pre-Consolidation process together with the Social Innovation Laboratory of ColungaHUB.
From the regions of Tarapacá, Valparaíso, Metropolitana, O'Higgins and Araucanía are the projects that have been chosen to live the learning process of the Innovative Fund of Fundación Colunga.
The call "Emprende El Viaje: Discover the heart of your project", opened in September of this year, invited social and functional organizations to participate with projects whose target population is children and young people in contexts of vulnerability in the Chilean territory. Of the 150 applications received, 20 went to the next stage of Pre-consolidation, where they will be given tools of social innovation to enhance their initiatives.
"The meaning of this call has to do with opening possibilities to organizations at an early stage, which have tested how their initiative works but need to improve it. What interests us most is the potential for innovation of the project and Colunga's commitment is training, "he said. Paulina Rojas, Director of the Foundation's Social Investment Fund.
The teams can improve their projects and have the possibility of accessing a maximum of 25 million pesos in financing. Those who are awarded the support will go to the Consolidation stage next to the ColungaHUB Laboratory, which seeks to strengthen and support the teams in the development of their projects.
Fe Sánchez, Director of ColungaHUB, emphasized the potential of the selected organizations. "We are very happy with the applications we receive because they are projects that have a good understanding of the need they are working with. In the days of Pre-Consolidation, which we will work with the Innovation and Research Laboratory Yuken, organizations will focus on the relevance between the problems detected, the reading of the contexts, and innovative solutions, "he said, and He noted that "next year we will work with the winners in the Consolidation program that will strengthen the project."
