Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Awards (Funded Travel to London and €50,000  Cash Award)

 Location: Cambridge, London, UK
Deadline: June 30, 2017 (23:59 BST)

​Fully funded to London and  €50,000  cash award  !!
Overview:

​​We are living in a world where temperatures are rising, water shortages are more frequent, food supplies are increasingly scarce and the gap between rich and poor is increasing. Populations are growing fast, making basic hygiene and sanitation even more of a challenge.

We can overcome these challenges and build a bright future for everyone, if we work together. But to do this, the world needs a plan. These Awards recognize 18 to 35 year olds who are putting ideas into action.

Why Unilever doing all this? Unilever  see a big opportunity: to support, inspire, reward and collaborate with a new generation of the world’s most brilliant young change makers; innovators who are the future of sustainability. Imagine what we can achieve together.

Unilever  is looking for innovative and scalable technologies or initiatives that are contributing to one or more of these four categories:

1. Farm to Table
2. Opportunities for Women
3. Waste
4. Water


Who can enter?

​Anyone from around the world, aged between 18 and 35 (as of 30 June 2017), who is working on an initiative in one of our four categories; Farm to Table, Opportunities for Women, Waste and Water. Your initiative must have already progressed beyond the idea stage and started making an impact.

​How to enter?

To submit your entry, you’ll need to create a  profile  and complete the application form. You’ll need to tell us all about your initiative’s story so far, and your vision for its future. The more you can share, the better.

​About the prizes

The Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Awards will recognise up to eight winners in 2017. Two finalists in each of the four categories will be selected from a video interview process and invited to an Accelerator Programme in Cambridge, where they will work with experts from the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, Unilever and other guest experts.

A winner will be selected out of each of the four categories.
