European Social Innovation Competition
A competition by the European Commission for entrepreneurs who run innovative, social and sustainable initiatives (some non-EU countries are eligible)
Although this is a European Competition, it includes a variety of non-European countries in its eligibility requirements. The judges give out three 50.000 Euro Cash prizes for the implementation of innovative, social and sustainable initiatives.
Every year, this competition is opened up to entrepreneurs under a different theme. Previous years' themes have included integration of refugees and migrants, increasing job opportunities and using technology for economic development. The 2019 theme was reducing plastic waste.
