There is a total of €1 million in combined prize money available for the five best start-ups, of which €500,000 is intended for the winner. The competition has expanded to become one of the largest annual sustainability competitions in the world.

Marieke van Schaik, Managing Director of the National Postcode Lottery, jury member and co-founder of the competition: “We are being confronted with the consequences of climate change around the world. At the Postcode Lottery, we are working towards a green and just world. We do so by supporting charities, but also by giving start-ups with amazing green innovations a boost. The drive and the creativity of these entrepreneurs is admirable, and very much needed to make our lifestyle more sustainable. With the prize money and our global platform, we want to help them move forward. I look forward to this year’s entries.”
