Abstract: This paper presents My SuperGrandparent, a successful Spanish NGO example of intergenerational cooperation. During the years between 2013 and 2017, and for the research of my doctoral thesis, I have identified, collected, codified, compared and analysed thousands of data related to social innovation and social innovation in Spain. From this qualitative analysis, conducted following the concepts of Grounded Theory, hundreds of case studies emerged allowing me, among other things, to determine the Relevant Social Challenges (hereinafter RSCH) of the Spanish social innovation, i.e. the inclusion of groups at risk of exclusion, the opening to new partnerships hitherto unknown, the conservation and diffusion of culture, etc. Indeed, through a comparative study of five cases of Spanish intergenerational cooperation it is inferred that My SuperGrandparent is a social entrepreneurship initiative, sustainable, replicable and scalable, that connects modernity and tradition, elders and young people, through ICT and promotes the cooperation in terms of parity and mutual enrichment. My SuperGrandparent represents an innovative and creative management model that integrates in a balanced way a social and technological approach at the same time.
