“In a period of crisis the know-how or having an entrepreneurial spirit is not enough. You must dare to think and innovate not only to build the future but also to guarantee the present we are meant to live and to be the counterpoint to bad times.

These people, institutions and companies have taken the plunge and with their example and tenacity are encouraging change, they have become the ethical reference in an era of lack of values”.
