Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore

ZeroPerCento

Zeropercento is the food market of the Namasté cooperative, which promotes the work placement of people who have long been unemployed and with intellectual disabilities. The project is active in Milan through 2 shops whose peculiarity is to sell all loose products: fruit and vegetables, but also bread, pasta, grains, juices, beer and wine, strictly coming from an ethical supply chain, attentive to the environment and work of man. In ZeroPerCento stores you will find only products from Italian farms and social cooperatives: one of the objectives pursued, in fact, is the enhancement of ethical producers who guarantee a supply of excellent quality.

In 2019 Zeropercento applied to the Call For Impact of Get it! on Education & Job Opportunities. After completing an acceleration path with Impact Hub and mentorship with Stefano Rovelli, it is among the first start-ups to be awarded by the Investor Day of Get it! with a investment of 25.000 eurofrom the Foundation Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore, strategic and operational branch of Fondazione Cariplo in the field ofimpact investing and promoter of the program, in partnership with Cariplo Factory.

Impatto sociale

ZeroPerCento represents a transitory moment in the working life of the beneficiaries of the project: during the months of work carried out in the shops, the subjects only learn the trade of sales but are helped during the search for a job in external contests, often in large-scale distribution. The project aims at training ground that allows you to become an active part of a more structured working context. The impact generated in the last 3 years of the activity of ZeroPerCento is considerable: it involved 15 people who had been excluded from the world of work and 10 of them while working in the shop, managed to find another job in large companies (often GDO and retail).
