Apply for the Start-up for Good Award!

Sustainability is “big” and becoming bigger!
Sustainable practices – which can be loosely defined as “improving our quality of life without borrowing from the future” – are gaining ground among businesses and investors. This is particularly true for start-ups: many of them are keen to ensure they achieve a proper investment return in three critical dimensions: financial, social and environmental.

To celebrate these start-ups and how they are changing the world for the better, the Monthly Barometer and OneRagtime have partnered to launch the “The Startup For Good Award”. This annual award will be presented at the Summit of Minds, awarded to the start-up which demonstrates the highest financial, social and environmental impact.

We are looking for a start-up whose revenues are driven by sustainable practices and whose products or services are socially and environmentally responsible. We will be considering the start-up’s net contribution to society through their social and environmental impact, while maintaining an effective business model and achieving financial success.

What’s the prize?
A jury composed of a diverse group of outstanding business leaders and investors will evaluate the start-ups. The winner will receive a learning expedition with Mountain-Path & 1 year of coaching and mentoring with senior business leaders drawn from the network of the Monthly Barometer and OneRagtime.

1. Application: Apply filling the form below. Applications open on the 18th June and close at midnight on the 18th July 2018

Every September, the Summit of Minds brings together 300 exceptional individuals (drawn from the Monthly Barometer’s exclusive global network) in a place of outstanding natural beauty to:
• Better understand today’s world and our place in it
• Get a sense of what tomorrow’s world will be
• Enhance our capacity to make better personal, investment and strategic decisions

Favoured by an exceptional and energizing environment, the gathering combines thinking and learning with
mindfulness and discovery in an atmosphere of trust, friendliness and informality.

This year Summit of Minds will take place from 21 to 23 September
