The Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards are one significant way to inspire action—that is why the search is on for young innovators aged 35 or under 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, we are looking for innovative and scaleable technologies or initiatives that are contributing to one or more of the eight Global Goals we have identified as most relevant to our business and entrepreneurs.
Seven (7) young entrepreneurs will receive a total of €200,000 in funding and support to help take their sustainable solutions to the next level. The prize package includes funding, customized expert mentoring support, access to an online business development program, a two-day accelerator workshop at the University of Cambridge, and networking with senior executives and sustainability leaders at Unilever’s headquarters.
- Six (6) 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.
