UNDP and World Bank SDGs and Her Grant for Women Entrepreneurs

SDGs&Her is an online competition for women entrepreneurs to showcase how they are supporting the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) through their business operations. The objectives of the initiative are to:

  • recognize women implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including women business owners of microenterprises;
  • increase knowledge about the SDGs and their potential impacts on women among non-traditional audiences; and
  • collaborate with private sector partners on all SDGs, but SDG5 in particular; to share best practices and innovative ideas.

Eligibility: The competition is open to women who own and/or lead microenterprises (1-9 employees; under USD $10,000 loan eligibility OR annual sales under $100,000).

To Enter: Applicants complete a short online template, describing their work and linking their initiative/product to 1 or more SDGs.

Judging: Entries will be screened by a university partner and then judged by an expert panel. Judges will determine the winners based on the impact on the SDGs, vision and purpose, and clarity of the entries.

PrizesThe top winners will be recognized in September, 2018 at an event on the margins of the 2018 UN General Assembly High-Level Week in New York. The stories of the winning women entrepreneur (and many other notable entries) will be shared through partners’ social media and websites.
