As we approach Christmas, Shell LiveWIRE enters its final few weeks for applications. Shell LiveWIRE supports young, innovative UK entrepreneurs with ideas to meet the energy and resource needs of a fast-growing population.
The programme offers grants of up to £5,000 for each monthly winner, and the opportunity to be named the 2015 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the year. Winners also receive mentoring sessions with programme alumni, Shell senior business leaders, and the opportunity to participate in the Shell Let’s Go Trade Programme.
Former winners include Caventou, a unique company which uses solar energy to create energy storing furniture; and Aqua Power Technologies, which uses a unique design allowing wave energy to be harnessed from any axis and will be establishing a wave power farm in 2016.
The eligibility criteria is simple: The award is open to any UK-based entrepreneur aged 16-30 who has been trading for less than a year, or is looking to start trading in the next 6 months, and has an innovative idea that addresses the UK’s future transport, energy, or natural resource challenges, or makes our urban environments cleaner and more sustainable places to live in.
