Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Award
Compete for 50.000 USD
If you are looking for an award where you may have the greatest chance of benefitting from, this award is what you are looking for. While the winner receives 50.000 USD, they also provide seven other teams with funding. These eight teams are also invited to an Accelerator Programme run by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, as well as one year of mentoring support.
Whereas it doesn't matter at what stage your initiative/technology is (just an idea or already implemented), it has to fall into one of the following categories:
Improve people’s health and well-being
Improve the health of the planet
Contribute to a fairer and more socially inclusive world
As you can see the categories are fairly vague so this prize really has a lot of potential.
I also need to note that applications are welcome from all around the world except for Russia. Yeah. I have no clue why.
