The Green Alley Award is Europe’s first start-up prize specifically for the circular economy. It fosters and promotes ground breaking digital circular economy solutions, recycling solutions or ideas for waste prevention in order to recover valuable resources from waste. All circular economy start-ups based in Europe and just entering the market, starting to grow or even expanding into new European markets, are welcome to apply.
This year’s most convincing candidates will be invited to the finals in Berlin (October/November) with great networking and learning opportunities for all. In workshops they will meet European circular economy experts and start-up mentors offering valuable advice as well as the opportunity to gain new business contacts. In the evening all finalists will present their business ideas in a live pitch to an international audience. An expert jury will then select the winner of the Green Alley Award 2020, who will be rewarded with a cash prize of € 25,000. Start-ups can apply by 10 June 2020.
