Apply: 2019 Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Awards

The Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Awards are back for 2019!

Unilever is on the hunt for inspiring young innovators who are tackling a social or environmental problem head-on. If you've got an initiative, product or service already in action that's tackling a sustainability problem, we want to hear from you.

This year, the Awards will recognise initiatives in three key areas:

  • Improving people's health and well-being
  • Improving the health of the planet
  • Contributing to a fairer and more socially inclusive world

Who can enter?

Anyone from around the world (excluding Russia), aged between 18 and 35 (as of 29 June 2019).


After several rounds of judging, eight winners are selected who will then go on to attend a three-day accelerator event in Cambridge. Following this, the “HRH Prince of Wales Young Sustainability Entrepreneur Prize” winner is selected during a pitch day at our offices in London and will receive a €50,000 cash award. The remaining seven winners will each receive a €8,500 cash award. All eight winners will also receive tailored business mentoring services for 12 months provided by experts from Unilever and The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.


The Awards are open now and are accepting entries until Sunday 30 June, 23:59 BST 2019.
