The Rolex Awards for Enterprise supports inspiring individuals who carry out innovative projects that advance human knowledge or well-being. At Young Future Shapers, we applaud Rolex’s efforts to promote young innovators and their vision. As Rolex states about their Award:
If you are between 18 and 30 years old with vision and a ground-breaking proposal that will help to expand knowledge of our world and improve the quality of life on the planet, apply for a Rolex Award in 2018.
Five inspiring Young Leaders will receive 100,000 francs each, double the previous amount offered to winners in this age group. They will also benefit from worldwide publicity and receive a Rolex chronometer.
Applications must be broadly in the areas of the environment, applied science and technology, or exploration.
In addition to demonstrating a spirit of enterprise and leadership, candidates must put forward projects or work plans that have a clear purpose, are original and have the potential for significant impact.
Candidates must be between 18–30 years old at the end of the application period, on 30 June 2017.
Our goal at Young Future Shapers is to enable those young entrepreneurs with the potential to unleash it and bring their enterprising ideas to life. We hope to enable individuals who would be candidates for winning this award next year with our team of experts and mentors to guide them towards success.
