French oil giant launches startup competition for young entrepreneurs in 60 countries including Romania

Synthetic oil producer Total Romania, part of Total Group, the fourth largest oil company in the world, has launched the Startupper of the Year Challenge. The project will be carried out in 60 countries including Romania and will support and reward young local entrepreneurs in any business less than two years old, according to Business-Review.eu.

This is the second Startupper of the Year Challenge. The first edition was held in 2015 in more than 30 African countries.

“Among the winners of the last Challenge there was an app that taught pregnant women what to do and when to do it, a guide throughout their pregnancy,” says Marco Pannunzio, managing director at Total Romania.

The 2018-2019 Startupper of the Year by Total Challenge will support and reward young local entrepreneurs in any business sector with a project or business less than two years old. In each participating country, a local jury comprised of experts from Total, specialists from incubators and accelerators, business leaders and local community stakeholders will select three winners.

The projects will be assessed based on their:

  • Innovative nature.
  • Social and community impact.
  • Feasibility and development potential.
