This joint initiative of Fundación Impulsar and Banco Macro began in 2013 and is composed of three stages: 1° Training of entrepreneurs in the formulation of business plans; 2° Selection and award of monetary prices to the three best business plans; and 3° One-year free mentorship to ten entrepreneur projects.

The First Prize Project was awarded the amount of ARS$ 20,000 and a one-year mentorship. The second Prize Project was awarded the amount of ARS$ 18,000 and the Third Prize Project the amount of ARS$12,000, both being also awarded a one-year mentorship.

The evaluation board took into account the different aspects of each of the entrepreneurships: business plan feasibility, its innovation and capacity to generate future employment, the qualities of the entrepreneur and skills to develop the project. These tools will allow them to formalize their own Small Company (PYME).

This is the second time that Banco Macro and Fundación Impulsar joined efforts to support and promote entrepreneurship through the "Banco Macro - Fundación Impulsar Entrepreneurship Competition" in nine provinces.
