CP/RAC's endorsing technical and funding tools for Green entrepreneurs: Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards

13th September 2013 | Updated: 4th October 2013

The Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards, developed by Unilever in partnership with the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership, are looking for innovative yet practical, tangible solutions created by young people that help make sustainable living commonplace.

Young entrepreneurs (aged 30 or under) are invited to submit groundbreaking initiatives that tackle the challenge of sustainable living. More than 200.000 € in financial support and individually tailored mentoring is on offer to help entrepreneurs develop and scale up their initiatives during the competition.

Seven finalists will take part in a four-week, online development program followed by a two –day accelerator workshop in Cambridge, UK, at which experts help and professional guidance will be provided to help them develop their ideas. This will be followed by a pitch to a panel of judges in London, drawn from the worlds of business, sustainability and entrepreneurs.

The awards are looking for scalable and sustainable solutions in the form of products, services or applications that enable changes in practices or behaviors in one or more of seven categories:

  • Water, sanitation and hygiene
  • Nutrition
  • Water scarcity
  • Greenhouse gases
  • Waste
  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Helping smallholder farmers

Applications must be submitted online via the Ashoka Changemakers Platform by 1 November. Finalists will be announced in December 2013, with the Cambridge Accelerator Workshop and final judging taking place in January 2014.
