The economics and business magazine “Portafolio”, from the El Tiempo editorial group, annually awards the “Portafolio Prizes” with the goal of highlighting those Colombians that have contributed to building a better country through their entrepreneurial initiative and leadership capacities. These prizes highlight the efforts of Colombian companies and individuals in ten categories, focusing on those men, women and groups that make academic, ethical and creative contributions to the entrepreneurial, economic and social development of the country.
In September 2011 the Fundación Mundo Mejor was nominated for the 2011 Portafolio Prizes in the “Community Contribution” category, which recognizes the work of non-profit organizations in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the country.
The Portafolio Prizes are the most important entrepreneurial awards in the country. Year after year they recognize the existence of companies and people that are ready to surpass expectations in their industries and environments. The Foundation was extremely proud to receive this nomination.
