Sustainability and Responsible Banking

Sustainability and Responsible Banking

It’s been around for just two or three generations, but plastic has become a pervasive part, not only of our lives but, as researcher Andrés Cózar confirmed in a study sponsored by BBVA Foundation, of our oceans, too. This includes, paradoxically, the one that washes the shores of one of the least populated places on earth: the Arctic Ocean.

The 'millenials' are defying all the stereotypes: they are more careful with their savings and more cautious with their finances than most people might think.  The latest studies show that young people between the ages of 18 and 35 are concerned about the future, in spite of the obstacles they face in the present.

BBVA Compass is putting out the call to social entrepreneurs in Texas who are eager to scale up so that they can have greater impact on people’s lives. The bank will select up to 20 to participate in BBVA Momentum, an intensive seven-month training program for entrepreneurs who want to change the world through their work.

The submission period for the sixth edition of BBVA Momentum, BBVA’s social entrepreneurship program, expired last Friday, March 31st. The number of companies that have registered has exceeded all expectations. Given this great response, the organizers have decided to push back deadline until April 16.

No matter how good an idea or wonderfully designed a project are, without relying on the right collaborators, mentors and entrepreneurs, success is likely to remain elusive for entrepreneurs. Five years ago, Momentum started nurturing an ecosystem that has continued to grow ever since, bringing participants together and promoting collaboration and synergies.
