If this isn’t in your line of work but you do know of a small business or green entrepreneur that may be interested then let them know about the Shell Springboard Awards. If they win they could invite you along to the celebrations!
Previous winner Bryn Richards, CEO of Aeristech, said of the awards:
“Winning Shell Springboard was a big help to our fundraising round. It enhanced our brand and helped us build momentum. It was also an excellent opportunity for peer review of our technology and business model. I would urge anyone out there with a good idea for tackling the climate challenge to enter the awards.”
Aeristech won £40,000 of funding from the Shell Springboard Awards for their innovative hybrid turbocharger which eliminates "turbo lag" and can reduce energy by as much as 25% over conventional petrol engines thus allowing smaller engines to do that work of bigger ones but at greater levels of efficiency.
