I hope some young social-entrepreneur sees this and applies just in time! Sometimes the most deserving are simply not connected enough to even know about these resources.

What we need to do is break down the walls of information access and give more young people a chance to see opportunities like these.

What’s the Unilever Young Entrepreneur Award? This is a cash & mentoring award for a young entrepreneur who is solving an environmental or social problem. To be specific, they want people who have solutions/ideas to address people’s health & well-being/ health of the planet/build a socially inclusive world.

Last date: 30th Jun, 2019 so better rush!

Criteria for applicants: showcase a product/service or initiative that tackles a sustainability challenge. Also, you need to be young (18-35 years). (Sadly, young-at-hearts like myself are disqualified)

Prizes: While 1 winner gets the 50K Euro HRH Prince of Wales cash award, 8 finalists get to go on a 3-day accelerator event at Cambridge. The other finalists get 8,500 Euro cash award. All 8 finalists get 12 months of mentorship from Unilever & The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability. It couldn’t get any sweeter!

Get Inspired! Here’s a list of the previous finalists/winners of this award

Hi! I write on sustainability, books and simply lying fallow. I've worked for 14 years in various industries, but nothing will mean as much as making a real difference through the advocacy of Sustainability. This is a topic that I think is critical in developing economies like India/South Asia.
