2019 Google Cloud and SAP Circular Economy 2030 Contest for Social Entrepreneurs

Deadline: March 17, 2019.

In 2018, global demand for resources was 1.7 times what the earth can support in one year and is only expected to rise.1 Google Cloud and SAP are coming together to help address this challenge and host a social entrepreneurship contest for a sustainable future.If you believe business can catalyze positive change, this is your opportunity to spark a sustainable revolution.

In 2015, the United Nations established the 2030 Agenda that’s comprised of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each goal proposes how people and the planet can prosper together. Our contest focuses on SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, which includes establishing green jobs, promoting resource regeneration, and building a circular economy by 2030.



1. To apply, you must be at least 18 years old and a social entrepreneur.

2. This can be an owner or a leader of a social enterprise, or someone who’s looking to jumpstart their idea.

3. Members of nonprofits or community-based organizations are welcome to apply too.



1. Original idea: Creativity is key. We want to see new ideas with the potential to impact any aspect of the global economy — from efficient resources and energy use to sustainable infrastructure and green job creation.

2. Viable business model: We like the nitty-gritty details. Submit a well-researched proposal that describes the problem, proposes a solution, and demonstrates a clear capability for generating revenue.
