Personae is the welfare accelerator of the CDP National Network, established in conjunction with SocialFare and Avanzi a|cube, to support the growth of start-ups that develop welfare services and technologies. You can submit an application for your start-up from today until 2 October.
CDP Venture Capital Sgr has just announced the opening of the Personae call for proposals, a start-up accelerator set up for the purpose of developing new welfare solutions and services for individuals, the community and businesses.
The programme enjoys the support of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo as one of its main partners, and is part of the CDP National Accelerators Network, a network covering the whole of Italy and designed to help the growth of young enterprises specialising in high-potential markets.
The specific aim of the Personae call for proposals is to support the development of start-ups that take an innovative approach to the latest challenges in the welfare arena, such as:
- Demographic imbalances;
- fragmentation of family structures;
- emergence of new relational models;
- rising numbers of people at risk of social vulnerability;
The proposed solutions must be accessible, personalised, flexible, inclusive and innovative, and fall within the scope of individual, work-related, economic, family or community welfare.
The best projects will be rewarded with additional investments of up to 300,000 euros per start-up.
To take part in the call, you need to register with the idea360 platform, read the regulations and complete your application by 2 October 2022.
