We apologize for the unfortunate delay, but we are now finally prepared to announce the winners of the second edition of the economical tender for business activities hit by the earthquake.
We are satisfied and profoundly convinced that initiatives like this will lead the territory towards a new beginning. We received many emails; actually more than thirty companies, situated in the entire earthquake area, wanted the chance to participate in this initiative.
These grants require the presentation of a concrete project to realize with the offered economical support. This explains our great satisfaction: thirty among men and women who still have hope and believe in the future of this devastated land.
The project of each company were analyzed and evaluated using impartial and objective methods, published at the same moment as the launch of the bidding respecting the principle of equity and transparency (see chart).
