Do you have an innovative idea that can make a difference in your community?
Then get registered and you could be next the “Startupper of the Year”.
Startupper of the Year by Total is aimed to support social enterprises that are addressing social issues in the country.
Whether you are providing educational opportunities, trying to reduce child mortality, working to provide access to electricity to rural areas, building homes with eco-friendly materials, or anything that is improving the life of the people around you; if you have a feasible and innovative idea that has the potential to benefit the society at large, then you are eligible to participate in the challenge. However, you need to be between the age 18 to 35 years and your start-up enterprise should be less than 2 years old.
So glad to know, one of my friends has submitted her business idea for the #TotalStartUpperChallenge – her idea is community service based and (if selected) will really help boost some action in the domain of mental health. All the best to @AlizaMoiz
