GoBeyond: call for ideas

GoBeyond was created in 2014 as a call for ideas that enables projects with a high potential for innovation to transform into high-value ventures, through a network of successful businesses. The initiative was developed with the sole aim of promoting social responsibility, in order to generate value for the benefit of local communities, young entrepreneurs and start-ups.

The project is targeted at students, entrepreneurs and anyone with a drive to push the boundaries. It is supported every year by first-in-class partners. Since 2018, there have been two prize categories and we award the best projects with two equity-free grants and an advisory pathway organised by our partners.

Over the years, GoBeyond has evolved rapidly and has established itself as a genuine innovation platform for the Company. In 2021, we restructured the project to introduce a new, original Acceleration Program in partnership with the Impact Hub, in addition to the two grants, which is awarded to start-ups with female leadership.
