Public Value Wins: Looking for Startups With More Value

Don’t miss the opportunity to discover what’s in your startup. The EY Public Value Award for startups will be awarded for the third time on October 11, 2018 by HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management in cooperation with the auditing and consulting firm Ernst & Young. Young companies are invited to align their business models with courageous solutions to the challenges of our time.

That’s why you should apply: An innovative product and good profits alone are not enough. Rather, a change of perspective is required. Including society in business thinking opens the way for decisions that are valuable for society and that will last for a longer time. This approach is fully in line with HHL’s Leipzig Leadership Model. It’s certainly worth to think again, to explore the values of your start-up and make them visible to the outside world. Young companies from all sectors, whether IT, food, medical technology or in the social sector, are invited to participate.

“There are good reasons for startups to look at their contribution to the greater good right from the start. The result is a mixture of courage and humility that is so important for the success of a company. The common good is not an old-fashioned idea, but rather an attractive way of growing together in a meaningful way. The enormous response to the award shows the growing relevance of the topic.”
Member of the Jury Prof. Timo Meynhardt, HHL

Applications can be submitted online via the website until 23 July 2018.
