General Information to the SEA submission
What is the SEA?
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.
Independent from size, industry or country everybody is invited to submit his idea, project or business model linked to sustainable entrepreneurship.
We are deliberately not looking for any kind of Non-Profit-Organizations!
