“Te damos voz” is an opportunity by BioGuia, Efecto Colibrí, ES2 Latam and LeFil Consulting for 15 social entrepreneurs from Latin America and the Caribbean to create a wave of impact stories and make their brands known to all the corners of the region.
– The price has a value of US$ 30.000 in outreach and promotion –

What are the prizes?

We are interested in telling the impact story behind your products and/or services, and indirectly making your social enterprise known throughout Latin America and the Caribbean! Social entrepreneurs can win the following prizes:

  • A 1-minute video-capsule for 10 social entrepreneurs, produced and distributed on the Bioguia Website and Social Networks, whose audience is 18M + fans on Facebook, 1.5M on Instagram and 8M monthly visits to the Website. People reached per 100,000 publication, 80% consumed by a Latin American audience.
  • 1 podcast interview for 5 social entrepreneurs produced and distributed by Efecto Colibrí on 3 digital platforms with 75K impressions on their website and an average of 5K downloads per episode, as well as broadcast on their social networks.
  • All the winners will have access to a Communication Kit created by LeFil Consulting and ES2 Latam, with which they will have the visual and communication resources to spread their stories from this campaign, in addition to having a permanent space on the ES2 Latam platform.

This competition closes a communication and promotion gap that many social entrepreneurship brands need to scale their solutions to new audiences and regions. By giving them this recognition, we seek to increase their visibility and reach.
