The Broccoli Project, the rewards programme for the poor that I wrote about recently, walked away with the 2nd prize in Hit Barcelona’s Global Entrepreneurship Competition this past week. Spanish company Bmat won first prize.
The Broccoli Project also won the award for “best social value” walking away with total prize money of 25 000 euros to fund their activities. Whether they attracted support from venture capitalists attending the event remains to be seen.
Launching their updated website last week (http://broccoliproject.org), Marc Anthony Zimmerman, founder and CEO of the project thanked the numerous supporters that had enabled them to get to Barcelona and to win the award.
