EWA's final ceremony was held between the Scuderia, FFI headquarters, and Palazzo Re Enzo, a historic palace in the center of Bologna. Together, the EWA award ceremony was also held at 'C'è Più Gusto', a major event dedicated to the world of food organized by one of Italy's largest publishing groups (gruppo GEDI).
This day was attended by about a hundred people who saw the female entrepreneurs pitch and receive the awards.
During the day, all the EWA entrepreneurs had the opportunity to show what they had learnt and implemented during the 6 months of the programme.
Once the entrepreneurs had presented their pitches and after the jury's deliberation, the awarded participants of this year's edition were presented.
The first prize was won by Diana Zagarella, founder of Olivair, a startup that produces a drone dedicated to harvesting hanging fruit.
The wind produced by the drone's propellers acts by imposing vibrations on the branches that cause the fruit to fall.
The second prize, on the other hand, went to Martina Riolino, founder of Zoé Food Evolution, a fast food concept of vegan cuisine.
Zoé focuses on the in-store processing of fresh pasta and condiments, resulting in curated, fresh, healthy, organic (where possible), and zero-mile food.
