The Sustainable Business Leadership Prize – LiderES – celebrates impact entrepreneurs who, through their businesses, create social or environmental value for their community. In order to create a culture around responsible businesses, it is essential to honor those impact entrepreneurs who deliver superior social and financial performance.
This Prize seeks to inspire a new generation of local impact entrepreneurs and investors. Winners receive capital, media exposure, and free strategy consulting to increase their impact.
The Prize was launched thanks to key partnerships with the Nicaraguan Association for Corporate Social Responsibility (UNIRSE) and the Cooperation Program of Germany (DED). The LiderES Prize is supported by Citi Foundation, PROPEMCE, and the Cooperation Program of Germany. The first annual prize dinner was held Wednesday, June 3rd where Dominique Ruegsegger of Finca Santa Clara and Paulo Reyes of Agro Eco Servicios were awarded the inaugural prizes.
