Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge, one of the world’s largest competitions in sustainable entrepreneurship, is now open for entries! Green start-ups and entrepreneurs based in Britain have until 1st April to apply online for the chance to win up to €500,000 and six months of bespoke support to help grow their business and take it to the next stage.

Since the competition was founded in 2007, it has rewarded a variety of businesses, including bio-bean, a UK company that recycles coffee for consumer and industrial markets, in 2014. Former jury members include Sir Richard Branson and Dame Ellen MacArthur.

To increase the chance of your application succeeding, Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge is also hosting a 30-minute webinar on 25th March at 11am. The webinar will outline the competition in more detail alongside the requirements for stage one of the competition and will be an opportunity for applicants to ask any questions they may have.
