A great opportunity for startups, since Shell is not only opening up its network and awarding a great prize, but is truly looking for startups to collaborate with.

Bright Energy Ideas Challenge

On the 26th of May, Shell launched the Challenge during EnergyFest. The goal of this Challenge is to find startups with relevant solutions for smart mobility innovation and willing to implement these together with Shell in the coming years.

Why? Because the world is changing, and technology and innovation are at the heart of that change. The amount of cars on the road is predicted to triple by 2050, not to mention to growth in freight and flight.

Shell is looking for innovative solutions in the following four areas:

  • smart products - products that reduce CO2-output and minimize energy consumption
  • smart usage - solutions to improve fuel usage efficiency
  • smarter infrastructure - technology to deal with the increasing demand for mobility and inefficiencies in the current transportation systems
  • smart models - disruptive business models to reinvent the old or introduce the new within smart mobility

How does it work?

Startups participate by applying online at www.GetintheRing.co/Shell. The deadline for applications is August 20th. In September, 5 finalists will be selected for a final pitch. The winner will be chosen during the event on October 4th, in the Hague, the Netherlands.
