    Social and environmental entrepreneurs can now submit applications for the annual SEED Awards.

    The SEED Awards for Entrepreneurship in Sustainable Development are an annual awards program. The awards are designed to recognize the most promising and innovative social and environmental entrepreneurs in countries with developing and emerging economies. The program is administered by the SEED Initiative.

    SEED Awards do not carry a cash prize. Rather, SEED offers winners a range of business services and support. The support package is tailored to suit individual needs. It may include assistance with business plans, high-level profiling of the initiative, and access to relevant institutions, organizations and businesses.

    This year, the SEED Awards have a special focus on Africa. While SEED is inaugurating its first country program in South Africa, it will also concentrate on Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda and Senegal.

    Detailed eligibility criteria are available at: http://seedinit.org/en/awards/about-the-seed-awards/eligibility-criteria.html. Send applications before August 16, 2010.
