Closed the call for proposals to participate in the new edition of the Green Alley Award (GAA), an European competition for which Consortium ERP Italia is a partner.

The Green Alley Award 2019 is aimed at all start-ups and young entrepreneurs who have developed a business model in the areas of digital circular economy, recycling and waste prevention.

In the 2019 edition, 274 entries were collected from different European countries.

From the incoming applications, six finalists will be selected to take part in GAA and will be notified in early September. The finalists are then invited to Berlin on October 17th, where they will work on their business models in individual rounds of talks with LBG professionals as well as external experts on the circular economy and start-up industry. At the end of the day, the finalists present their projects on stage in front of an expert jury and an international audience in a five-minute pitch. The jury is made up of representatives from the Landbell Group as well as external experts including Alexis Figeac, originator of the EU project R2Pi on Circular Economy Business Models, and Elena Dieckmann, CEO and co-founder of the start-up Aeropowder which won the 2018 Green Alley Award.

The finalists will have the opportunity to win the Seedmatch Crowd Award, a prize that includes a day of workshops on how to collect money through online platforms and the possibility of creating an individual crowdfunding campaign.

The winner of the 2019 Green Alley Award can look forward to €25,000 in prize money.
