The best projects and ideas will be honored within a festive Gala in Vienna, in November 2015. You can present your idea in one of these eight categories.

This is the business model of the future. It is all about using sustainability (the entrepreneurial contribution to sustainable action) in a targeted way in business, and anchoring the concept deeply within the structure of companies. It is about picking up on the social problems of our time and linking them with innovative business models, so that added value is created for both society and business at once – that’s the basic principle behind it. Sustainable Entrepreneurship is about usefully linking entrepreneurial success with sustainable action, and understanding sustainability as an engine for innovation, economic growth and profit by doing so. The concept provides a huge opportunity for all entrepreneurs (small and medium-sized enterprises in particular) to pull away from the competition in future, generate clear competitive advantage in the market, strengthen economic success and reinvigorate their power of innovation. It is a modern attitude to life a lifestyle revolution.


SEA is oriented towards companies and individuals around the world who live and understand “Sustainable Entrepreneurship” in its best sense. Irrespective of the size of the company, the industry or country involved, anybody is welcome to submit their ideas, projects and business models in the sense of Sustainable Entrepreneurship.
