The Challenge, developed by Shell’s New Energies Research and Technology group, asks Net Impact member participants to ideate novel business models, technologies and supply chains that promote and strengthen integrated energy systems today and in the future.
In the first round of the competition, participants will submit a proposal with broad business ideas or a system solution in response to their choice of problem statement in the Challenge brief.
Top submissions will move on to a second, comprising engagement and mentorship opportunities with Shell experts from different lines of business.
Last year’s three finalist teams won an opportunity to attend and participate in Powering Progress Together and Make the Future California 2018. This year, the finalists, chosen at the end of round two, will be flown to an Accelerator workshop at Make the Future California 2019, to develop their proposals into market-ready pitches.
