About the program
One Young World Lead2030 Challenge is the world’s biggest prize fund for young leaders making an impact on the Sustainable Development Goals. Powered by some of the world’s leading businesses, the initiative finds, funds and accelerates SDG solutions created by founders under 30.

The programme is made possible by all the Lead2030 Challenge Partners who have together committed to making half a million dollars available to youth-led projects in its first year.
