An exciting new competition is launching soon – The Good Entrepreneur. The competition aims to identify entrepreneurs across Europe with environmentally responsible business concepts. These should be concepts that are based on making a contribution to the protection of the environment.

The competition has been created in a partnership between CNBC, the leading business and financial news television channel and Allianz, one of the leading integrated financial services providers worldwide.

The competition kicks off at the beginning of June and the individual named “The Good Entrepreneur of 2009″ will receive a prize package worth more than €250,000. The package includes exposure on CNBC as well as comprehensive business support from Allianz.

From 8 June, anyone who is based in Europe can enter through the website,  You’ll be asked fill out an application form and submit a 60 second video pitching your idea.  The video doesn’t have to be fancy – you could film it on your mobile phone – it’s the idea that counts.

Applications close on 31 July 2009, and the three finalists will be announced in August 2009.

The finalists will then be filmed to feature in a four-part televised series on CNBC, documenting the progress of each person.  In the series finale, a panel of high profile judges will reveal the winner of the competition.  The series will be broadcast across Europe, the Middle East and Africa and in Asia during the autumn of 2009.

If you’d like more information about entering the competition or how you can get involved as an organisation, please visit us online at or get in touch with someone from The Good Entrepreneur production team at CNBC.
