Today, we start walking again the route of the ideas contest of more traditional ideas; those that are born to support the creation of new companies basing their activity on an innovative and / or creative idea. Maybe this kind of contests are today more important than ever, due to the crisis, that may cause that an entrepreneurial decision –which is already risky by itself – becomes impossible.
During the presentation of the contest, the registration of which was open until September, 22nd of last year, the so much feared crisis is mentioned.
The III Contest for Entrepreneurial Ideas has been organized by FER (Federación de Empresarios de La Rioja); it has also the support of the Servicio Riojano de Empleo and the ADER (Agencia de Desarrollo Económico de La Rioja).
This year, the first prize, with 10.000 Euro in cash, (without any doubt, a good help for any idea to become real), the prize has been awarded to José Ignacio Pérez Moneo, Alberto Pérez García y Eva Sáenz Plaza). The team presented a project called Hot Innovation Proyecto Cierzo, consisting in a managing system that forecasts the demand for touristic accommodation by analyzing and researching the habits of tourists.
The second prize, with 4.500 Euro, has been awarded to the project Vidar Consultoría y Servicios Agrarios-Precisión XXI, a biotechnology and I+D+i projects consultancy. The third prize was awarded to the leaders of Dercetius. This company is active in the fields of archaeology and management of the Cultural Heritage. They will receive 2.500 Euro in total.
