The second phase of B-Value, the programme aimed at leaders in the third sector that seeks to transform the social sector through innovation, starts with the announcement of the 10 finalists. Throughout the first phase, the 40 participating institutions received training on various topics by experts and took part in mentorships with 40 volunteers from Banco Sabadell, with whom they worked together to define and enhance their value proposition.

From this point onwards, the 10 finalists will participate in an intense Bootcamp Week, with workshops in which to work and fiercely develop their proposals, and will have the support of a large number of expert mentors from the Bank and partner companies individually selected according to the challenges identified. After this week, which will take place in September, the mentorships will continue until the Demo Day, an event that takes place at the end of the year where the winning institutions will be announced, once the Selection Committee has reviewed the projects from the 10 institutions.
