Calling all entrepreneurs!
Today marks the opening of the Postcode Lottery Green Challenge. Are you ready for a competition that could change the world?
I have been involved in the Dutch Postcode Lottery challenge since 2007 and was fortunate enough to chair the sustainable competition jury last year.
Now in its eighth year, the challenge invites entrepreneurs to enter innovative, creative and sustainable ideas to be in with a chance of winning a massive €500.000.
The competition looks for products and services capable of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and that have the ability to be brought to market within two years.
With that in mind, this is the perfect competition for any sustainable start-up entrepreneurs looking for the opportunity to get their business ideas off the ground.
And after last year’s inspirational winners BioMASON and their use of bacteria to ‘grow’ bricks out of readily available materials, it will certainly be exciting to see what people come up with.
I have no doubt that this year will see the very best in emerging businesses and it is always encouraging to see people take their business hopes and dreams from paper to reality.
I am very excited to see who this year’s finalists will be and wish all entrants the very best of luck.
The jurors will choose the winner on September 11th at the final in Amsterdam. Find out more about the competition and be sure to submit your business plans by June 3rd.
