Created by Mr Karl Grotenfelt in 2013, the Famigro Award aims to reward the best European rural entrepreneurship project of the year. The Famigro Award rewards each year an innovative entrepreneurial project that answers to the current challenges of the rural sector.

Entrepreneurial projects contribute to the evolution of our rural countryside, while the respect of the environment and social responsibility is endorsed by each rural entrepreneur. The aim of the Famigro Award is to increase the chances of this kind of valuable projects to succeed and grow, letting them benefit from the support of the network of the Friends and Young Friends of the Countryside.
