Green Alley Award Supports Europe's Eco-entrepreneurs

| Return|

The Green Alley Award is a start-up competition focused on the green economy, dealing specifically with the challenges of the throwaway society, the scarcity of resources and the recovery of raw materials. It is targeted at 'green' entrepreneurs from across Europe with business ideas for the circular economy and new ways of improving waste and recycling industries.

The theme of the awards is around connecting green ideas. Green Alley is looking for ideas, new services, products and technologies that can turn waste into a resource. In return, it offers strategic support, networking opportunities and financing to boost business across Europe.

Finalists are invited to a one-day event with workshops and live pitches in Berlin where they will meet circular economy experts and benefit from networking and learning opportunities. The Green Alley Award winner receives up to €25,000 in cash.

By taking part in the contest entrepreneurs will profit from a network of green economy experts and valuable new business contacts.

Entrepreneurs and start-ups operating in the green economy, from across Europe, with business ideas and digital solutions for the circular economy and new ways of looking at waste prevention can apply.
