Calling all early-stage UK entrepreneurs: eAwards!
The Global eAwards are in its twentieth year, running across 11 countries to find start-ups that are leading the way in taking technology to those who need it the most. Last year saw a number of exciting projects take home accolades. This is the first year that UK participants are being invited to take part in this prestigious competition.
For example, ArgentinasMindcotinewas awarded for its technology that helps change addictive behaviours through digital therapy solutions combining virtual reality, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy. ChilesEcoFuelswas also recognised for its portable and scalable equipment that processes plastic waste and transforms it into diesel-type fuels, mitigating the environmental impact of plastic on soil and water.
What the eAwards are looking for
For this years eAwards, we are looking for projects based on high-impact, innovative, scalable, sustainable technologies that contribute to improving the quality of life and/or solve environmental problems through digital business models and/or the intensive use of technology. The everis foundation encourages talent that, through technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation, promotes quality of life and environmental care.
What’s in it for me?
The winning UK project in the eAwards will receive 10,000 and a mentoring programme. But it doesn’t stop there. They will then represent the UK in the international final of the Global eAwards 2021, with a chance to win a further 60,000 investment and an exclusive acceleration programme.
Closing date for applications: 12 September
