We proudly present the 25 start-ups that are still in the running to win €500,000 in the Postcode Lottery Green Challenge 2018. These innovative businesses have been chosen by our preliminary jury out of 845 applications from 100 countries, and we are delighted to see entrepreneurs from all over the world making it into the top 25.

The diverse group of start-ups that have made it into the list of this year’s nominations include plans to stop plastic reaching the sea, to make storage of renewable energy more efficient and to combat water scarcity around the world. They show the broad range of ways businesses can have a positive impact on the planet, while also being successful.

The five finalists will be announced on 15 August and will then present their pitches to a jury on 13 September in Amsterdam, where the winner will be announced. Along with the grand prize of €500,000 for the winner, there will be a €200,000 prize for the runner-up and €100,000 up for grabs for each of the other finalists. In addition to the prize money, all finalists will receive over six months of expert coaching to optimise their business opportunities. Curious?
