The EY PUBLIC VALUE AWARD FOR START-UPs 2018 is not just about having a solid business plan for your startup or a cutting-edge product. It is also not solely dependent on if (or when) your start-up makes a profit and/or how measurable it is.
The focus of this award is the social benefit, and thus the public welfare contribution that arises from your business model, your product, or your service. This can happen in very different ways. No matter what industry you belong to, no matter what your purpose. Public value is not just created in Social Entrepreneurship, but also in companies that are profit and competition oriented.
Participation in the award is also interesting for you and your start-up. After all, your contribution to society through your products or services essentially determines how your start-up is perceived and recognized by the public. Through this change of perspective, you may discover values in your start-up that you were not aware of before, but that should also be emphasized.
