The SEA – Sustainable Entrepreneurship Award is a European initiative, looking for businesses/projects/ideas, who have recognized a social problem and linked its solution with an innovative, profitable business idea.

Irrespective of size, industry or country, everybody is invited to submit his/her idea, project or business model linked to sustainable entrepreneurship.

Sustainable Entrepreneurship is the keyword here, so Non-Profit-Organizations may not apply!
