Unilever Sustainable Solutions Young Entrepreneurs Awards for Young People Worldwide (Over €100,000 Cash Award)

If you’ve got an initiative, product or service already in action that’s tackling a sustainability problem, or you know someone else whose brilliant work deserves recognition, we want to hear from you. You can enter the competition or nominate someone who merits it.The Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Awards can help you take your sustainability initiative, product or service to the next level. We are on the hunt for solutions that are tackling some of the planet’s social and environmental challenges. This year, the Awards will recognise initiatives in eight key areas. Young entrepreneurs are invited to submit ground-breaking initiatives that tackle the challenge of sustainable living. Are you a young entrepreneur with a product, service, or application to enable sustainable living? Enter your solution before the deadline. Enter your initiative today!

The competition is open to founders or co-founders, aged between 18 and 35 (as of 29 June 2018), of initiatives from any part of the world with the exception of those based in Russia, due to local data protection laws.
Initiatives must relate to one or more of the categories: Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water and Sanitation, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Responsible Consumption and Production and Climate Action.
Entries must have grown beyond the idea stage to include actions the applicant has already taken – whether through informal networks, via an existing institution, or by creating a new enterprise.
Entries cannot be accepted from current Unilever employees, nor can entries promote Unilever or its products. However, the entrepreneur may have worked with Unilever in the past or may be working with Unilever currently as a third-party supplier.
Entries must be submitted in English.

Entries will also be evaluated on:

·                    How the Awards process and prizes would impact the success of the initiative.
