The CEMEX-Tec Award is an annual recognition of entrepreneurs and students that develop high-impact proposals and projects around sustainable development, innovation and social entrepreneurship.
The award, coordinated by CEMEX-Tecnologico de Monterrey Center for Sustainable Development, welcomes projects from all over the world. It offers winners funding, specialised workshops and networking opportunities.
The CEMEX-Tec Award features four categories with global scope, two of which are new for 2019: Transforming Communities, aimed at undergraduate and graduate students with proposals for the sustainable transformation of a community; Social Entrepreneurs, aimed at entrepreneurs with projects that solve social problems and encourage systemic change, with the potential of becoming a social business; Communitarian Entrepreneurship, aimed at organisations, foundations, cooperatives or civil associations with productive projects of social transformation; and Collaborative Action, aimed at organisations with social impact projects implemented through multisectoral partnerships.
In order to participate, teams should sign up and upload their projects to the CEMEX-Tec Center website (www.cdcs.com.mx), indicating the appropriate category for their proposals. The deadline to submit projects is Friday 31st May 2019.
