SEB Next Award – Celebrating Sustainable Entrepreneurship

In a world increasingly driven by innovation and sustainable practices, initiatives like The Next Awards play a pivotal role in recognizing and promoting the individuals and organizations making a lasting impact.

Last week Services We Trust got invited to this great annual competition that celebrates sustainable entrepreneurship and those driving it forward.

This prestigious award is divided into three categories, each contributing to a better world in unique ways.

The Three Categories:

  1. New Ideas: This category seeks to identify and honor budding entrepreneurs with groundbreaking ideas and initiatives that have the potential to create a more sustainable world, either on a climate or societal level. Entrants in this category are typically startups with innovative approaches and proven business models poised to become industry benchmarks.
  2. Transformation: The Transformation category recognizes companies that have made significant changes over recent years, either through internal transformations, external collaborations, or industry-wide impact. These changes should have resulted in measurable effects that contribute to a more sustainable society, whether in terms of the environment or society.
  3. Community: In this category, those who have made a substantial difference in society are celebrated. Applicants here can be associations or organizations that have devised creative solutions or approaches to significant societal issues, resulting in clear societal benefits and enhanced sustainability from either a social or environmental perspective.

As the grand finale, Danny Saucedo performed one on his most popular songs Amazing, together with Stockholm Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which was absolutely an experience to remember.

"Our vision for WatotoArt is simple yet profound: every child should have a doll that represents them. This means that our dolls should reflect the diverse backgrounds, skin colours, hair types, abilities, and family structures of all children. When kids play with dolls that look like them, they can envision themselves as the central characters in their stories, fostering a sense of importance and representation. Our mission is to spread this vision worldwide."
