Award programs

Description

A number of challenges and prizes have been launched as a way to showcase, identify, and promote innovative inclusive business models, which have potential for replication and expansion. Through these competitions, they stimulate innovation, showcase best practice cases for replication, generate support for acceleration or expansion, and build awareness around best case examples of inclusive businesses with high potential for further support.

Case writing competitions such as those organised annually by the European Foundation for Management Development and sponsored by the United Nations Development Programme Growing Inclusive Markets initiative serve to identify and share successful business models.

Innovar juntos - estrategia de fomento de los nuevos modelos de economía social e inclusiva a nivel internacional (Gobierno de Francia)

En los países del sur, los modos de desarrollo actuales debilitan el entorno social y ecológico. La pobreza, la exclusión, el trabajo precario, la sobreexplotación de los recursos naturales y la contaminación constituyen amenazas a la esperanza de una vida digna para cientos de millones de personas y ponen en peligro el futuro del planeta. Por ello, es urgente «actuar de otro modo».

Innover Ensemble - Stratégie de promotion des nouveaux modelés de l’économie sociale et inclusive à l’international (Gouvernement de la France)

Dans les pays du Sud, les modes de développement actuels fragilisent l’environnement social et écologique. La pauvreté, l’exclusion, le travail précaire, la surexploitation des ressources

naturelles et la pollution sont autant de menaces qui compromettent tout espoir de vie décente pour des centaines de millions de personnes et mettent en péril l’avenir de la planète. Il est

donc urgent d’« agir autrement ».
