What are the SEED Awards?
The SEED Awards for Entrepreneurship in Sustainable Development is an annual awards scheme designed to find the most promising, innovative and locally-led start-up eco-inclusive enterprises in countries with developing and emerging economies. The independent SEED International Jury of experts selects enterprises which have the potential to make real improvements in poverty eradication and environmental sustainability while contributing to a greener economy.
Is your enterprise in a start-up phase and does it integrate social and environmental benefits, solving pressing local issues?
Do you need support to help to establish and grow your eco-inclusive enterprise?
SEED has opened the Call for Applications for the 2016 SEED Awards in India.
