Eligibility Criteria

  • Being a company/startup, that is to say you have at least one product on the market and have made sales.
  • Be in one of these items:-
    • Orange Economy *
    • Food
    • Circular Economy * *

*Orange economy: For us, a company is part of the orange economy if it takes creativity, art and culture as a raw material.

** Circular economy: We understand the circular economy as one that promotes the reuse and recycling of materials. These companies promote a circular vision, where the “undone” of an industry are used as inputs in another.

*** Social Impact: For example, if you work in a company that promotes access to markets to small artisans, the impact of your company is not only given by the number of employees/suppliers you have, but also by the employees/suppliers of the companies you work with
