On the 19th of June, the annual Kering Foundation Award Ceremony took place in Paris to support social entrepreneurs and innovative ideas to end violence against women.
First prize went to Colori Vivi, tailor’s shop project promoted by Turin ONG Articolo 10. For this 2018 edition, the Foundation awards seven social entrepreneurs from three continents, up from three winners in previous editions. For the first time, in addition to a financial grant ranging from €5,000 to €10,000 and two years of mentorship under the guidance of Kering experts, each winner benefits from a six-month incubation program with a social innovation expert. This new start-up collaboration is designed to focus each organization’s needs, in order to maximize impact on the lives of the women and men they support.
