Shell Springboard 2017 is now open for applications!
Do you have a bright solution to reduce carbon emissions? Why not enter the Shell Springboard programme, which supports UK businesses who are working on innovative solutions to reduce carbon emissions. One national winner will receive £150,000 and a further five regional winners will each get £40,000 of equity-free funding, as well as feedback from leading academics, investors and policymakers, to help scale-up their enterprises.
Since launching in 2005, the programme has awarded over £3.5 million to 92 enterprises at the cutting edge of the low-carbon economy. Almost 80% of supported companies remain in operation five years after starting-up, in contrast to a national average of about 45%. The big ideas coming out of these businesses are not only helping to create a lower carbon future – they are also supporting job creation and green growth.
