The purpose of the Environmental Innovation Awards is to promote the goals and values of ONE CREATION as an investor by supporting young companies in the early stages of their existence and to integrate them into a community.
Deadline for applications: September 19th 2022
ONE CREATION is an investment company created in June 2010 to support the development of environmental technologies in a global and multisectoral approach. This commitment meets the conjunction of social, economic, and environmental needs.
Since 2010, the board of ONE CREATION has been successfully financing growth-stage private companies through its private equity allocation in the field of environmental innovation.
In 2022 it recognized the need to encourage entrepreneurship at an early stage in the field of environmental innovation. The board therefore decided to allocate a total amount of 50’000 CHF as awards to be shared between three companies at an earlier development stage than it would normally consider for its own portfolio.
After being selected by a jury out of a pool of 15 finalists, the three winning companies would not only benefit from the monetary contribution, but also from the visibility of being exposed to the community of investors of ONE CREATION. The winners will be invited to present on stage at the upcoming INNOCLIMATE event in Montreux (Switzerland) and receive their awards during the gala dinner.
All finalists will be joining the ENVIRONMENTAL INNOVATION AWARD alumni community.
