Call for ideas

Ideas that go far

Our call for ideas was created to support business ideas that innovate in a responsible and sustainable way, transforming society and improving people's lives.


We use an innovative approach that connects startups with a network of established entrepreneurial realities. This guarantees the selected projects access to continuous and qualified support and also engage with successful realities.

Sisal rewards the winning startup a grant of 50,000 euros (equity free).
The six startup finalists access an advisory program: each one will be paired with one of GoBeyond's partners and will be challenged and supported through the partner’s know-how and network.
The 20 best startups will be able to receive a special mention from the Enabling Partners and access personalized activities to enhance their project, led by the partners. On the 7th edition of the Call for ideas we also offer an online incubation program to the best concept-only startups, in collaboration with Startup Geeks.

Call for Ideas has ended, the eighth edition will be back in 2024
