Finpiemonte and the Giacomo Brodolini Foundation promote an accompanying path for the development of entrepreneurial projects with social impact in the rural and mountain areas.

Active organizations (companies, associations, cooperatives and community cooperatives, and in general organizations not registered in the business register) or potential future entrepreneurs (individual or group subjects) having a project idea to respond to social needs of rural and mountain areas can apply to this call.

The initiative will support projects that intervene in the territories of the Inner Areas of Biella, Cuneo and Turin (for a total of 293 municipalities), as identified by the SNAI national strategy, aimed at contrasting the demographic decline of the territories more distant from essential services (education , health, mobility).

The accompanying path that will be offered to 10 selected subjects will be aimed at promoting the creation or strengthening of the business project. It will develop in about 9 months (July 2020 – March 2021) and will include training sessions, individual assistance moments and practical exercises. It will require participants an average commitment of 3 days per month and will also include meetings at local offices and remote working arrangements.

Applications must be received by 30 June 2020.
