The Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards 2015
Deadline: November 18, 2015 | Views: 52
The Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards are one significant way they want to inspire action—that is why the search is on for young innovators aged 35 or under that have already begun to address the challenges at the heart of the Global Goals.
In partnership with the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), and in collaboration with Ashoka, they are looking for innovative and scaleable technologies or initiatives that are contributing to one or more of the eight Global Goals they’ve identified as most relevant to their business and entrepreneurs.
- Six finalists will each receive cash prizes of €10,000, along with support and mentorship (worth €10,000).
- One winner will receive a €50,000 cash prize and will be awarded the HRH The Prince of Wales Young Sustainability Entrepreneur Prize at an event in London in Spring 2016 and €25,000 worth of support and mentoring.
All entrants will benefit from exposure to a range of leading sustainability experts, entrepreneurs and investors during the process, along with recognition via Unilever’s global channels and the networks of the University of Cambridge and Ashoka.
