SEED is calling for applications for the 2016 SEED Awards. The awards will focus on start-up enterprises working at the grassroots level. Enterprises that incorporate social and environmental benefits in their business models, including women-led or owned organizations are encouraged to apply. In deciding winners, the jury will look for enterprises that have developed innovative products or services and intend to become financially sustainable.
Winners will be honored at the 2016 SEED Africa Symposium in Nairobi, Kenya, 28-29 September 2016. The ceremony will be combined with an expo for the winners to display their goods and services to a large audience. Winners will also receive capacity building and opportunities to link to other eco-enterprises and SEED Partners and network. Applications can be filled online and the deadline is 31 March 2016, 23:59 Central European Time (CET).
