4.The Green Alley Award
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 the waste and recycling industries.
The theme of the Awards is about connecting green ideas across Europe. 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.
All competition finalists will be invited to Berlin later in the year to participate in a one-day event with networking and learning opportunities. In individual workshops the start-ups will learn how to start, finance and boost a green business. All finalists are expected to pitch their business idea to an expert jury who will then select the winner of the Green Alley Award 2016.
The winner receives a cash prize of €7,000 and a package of additional benefits, including rent-free space in a co-working environment in Berlin for six months, coupled with the opportunity to pitch for an investment or crowdfunding.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 27 July 2016.
