Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards

In 2013 Unilever launched the annual Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards in partnership with the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) and in collaboration with Ashoka. It is a Program which celebrates and supports people under the age of 35 who are working on a unique product, service or application that will help create a brighter future for those in need. Unilever is looking for innovative and scalable technologies or initiatives that are contributing to one or more of the eight UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development that they have identified as most relevant to their business and entrepreneurs. The next round of Awards opens in May 2017.
