Application for the Green Alley Award 2017 has just opened! Green Alley is on the hunt for great green ideas, new services, products and technologies that can turn waste into a resource. Business ideas can include products, services or technologies to help avoid, reduce, reuse, recycle or transform waste, or to revolutionise the management of resources. Additionally, ideas to raise awareness of recycling and waste challenges are also encouraged.
The Green Alley Award is an annual European prize for start-ups and entrepreneurs in the circular economy, initiated in 2014 by a group of strong partners in Germany’s entrepreneurial eco-system. It is Europe's first start-up competition focused on the circular economy, recognising promising business ideas that contribute to building a circular economy and improving the waste and recycling industry as we know it today.
Eco-entrepreneurs, green start-ups, and anyone with a good idea is encouraged to apply for the award. No matter what stage of development your business has reached, whether you are a founder with a rough idea or a small business just starting to grow, your application is welcomed. In return, strategic support, networking opportunities and expertise in entering the circular economy across Europe is provided.
