17 june, 2020. – #StopCorona, the digital platform created by the ITC Vector group and the Samaipata venture capital fund to promote and disseminate technological initiatives that contribute to winning the health battle for COVID-19, has managed to bring together nearly 500 projects from more than 1,000 entrepreneurs in just two months since its launch at the end of March. In addition, the platform has achieved the collaboration of more than 60 large technological and digital companies (Amazon, IBM, Microsoft, Google, Telefónica, MásMóvil, Mindshare, etc.) and reference startups (Glovo, Bizum, Pompeii, ThePowerMBA, Bnext, etc.), which have offered them free services to boost their development and generate an impact in the long term.
The objective pursued by #StopCorona is to give visibility to all types of initiatives with a technological component originating in the context of the health crisis, and to promote their evolution, with the help provided by the services offered by leading companies in different digital environments. In addition, all the proposals of the platform participated in the competition #StopCoronaChallenge, to select the two best initiatives in each of these three categories: ‘Data Analysis’, ‘Technological Developments’ and ‘Other Projects’.
More than 30,000 people have participated with their votes in this selection. Finally, a committee of experts made up of representatives from the companies leading the project was responsible for choosing the winners. As a prize, they will all receive a package of 15 benefits offered by #StopCorona’s official Partners, including 100,000 euros in AWS credits, one-on-one consulting sessions with specialists from Google, Amazon or IBM, training and mentoring in design, marketing and communication with Designit, Bravent or Pompeii, or free software licenses from companies such as Carto or Genially, among others.
