The Spindle Award for Best Innovation

The Spindle rewards the best innovative concepts in the field of international development. We welcome innovative applications from all over the world and from all types of actors and organisations. Will you win The Spindle Award for ‘Best Innovation 2018’? Apply before July 31st 2018!

 

What are we looking for?
In short: we are looking for new solutions that work for inclusive and sustainable development. New projects, programmes, policies, business models or approaches within the existing realm of NGOs. But we also target new products, ventures or services that emerge from start-ups, social entrepreneurs, business or knowledge workers outside the development sector. These could be initiatives that have already proven to be effective or have just passed the first test pilot phase. Are you, or do you know, someone who works on such an initiative? Then this innovation might win The Spindle Award for ‘Best Innovation 2018’.
