The Youth Ecopreneur Awards



    The Youth Ecopreneur Awards aim to activate youth entrepreneurship in the green economy.

    The Awards are a green business competition for young entrepreneurs (up to 35 years old) from the least developed and developing countries, whose companies offer innovative solutions to environmental challenges.

    They award young ecopreneurs in three categories:



    The prizes include a monetary prize for the winners (total of USD 15k) as well as technical assistance and coaching by ITC experts and our partners. Most importantly, the Awards offer a stage and sounding board for youth to showcase their sustainable and scalable solutions to accelerate the green economic transition.
