GoBeyond: call for ideas

The contest conceived by Sisal was born in 2014 to encourage the development of new business ideas and to reward startups with a high impact on the community and the territory. The initiative was born with a pure purpose of social responsibility, aimed at generating value for the benefit of the community, young entrepreneurs and startups.

Over the years, the project has developed with the aim of offering continuous support to the startup ecosystem, transforming itself into an integrated platform in the company's business strategy. GoBeyond contributes to increasing and expanding the impact of ideas that respond to the problems and needs of the community and the environment.

In 2022 GoBeyond will award the winning startup with a grant (equity free) of 50,000 euros, while the six finalist startups will be able to benefit from an advisory program: each will be able to choose one of GoBeyond's partners with whom to undertake a path of support, comparison and sharing of skills and know-how. Finally, for the 20 best startups, some mentions are provided by GoBeyond Partners.
