Is your enterprise in a start-up phase and does it integrate social and  environmental benefits, solving pressing local issues?

Is it women-led?

Do you need support to help to establish and grow your enterprise?

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 social and environmental 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.

the SEEd initiative was co-founded by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
