Berlin Investment GmbH, Green Alley, is inviting young entrepreneurs from across Europe to apply for its start-up investment competition before the 27 July 2016 deadline.
The competition is designed for applications from innovative business models related to resource preservation, resource recovery, circular economy and recycling. The final of the Green Alley Award is going to take place in Berlin at the end of October.
Successful applicants will be invited to Green Alley’s pitch in Berlin at the end of October 2016. All finalists will receive valuable expert advice on how to establish successful business models and how to enter the market through individual workshops.
The chosen start-ups will present their ideas in a live-pitch to a broad audience of industry specialists. The final winner of the Green Alley Award 2016 will be selected by a jury of experts from the start-up and circular economy sector and will receive a prize package of cash and services worth up to €30,000.
In addition, the winner will have the opportunity to raise funds through crowdfunding or investments and to participate in an accelerator-programme.
In 2015, the Green Alley Award received 100 applications from all over Europe, including ideas from Germany, Israel, Bulgaria, Ireland, South America, Canada and the UK. The winner of the final pitch was the British start-up Adaptavate with its product “Breathaboard”, an alternative wall panelling, made out of 75% agricultural bio composite and therefore entirely decomposable.
