Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Programme

Do you have a smart business idea that will help meet the needs of our growing population?

By 2050, our planet could be home to more than 9 billion people with 75% living in cities – up from 50% today. More people will enjoy higher living standards, gaining access to modern transportation, reliable energy, cleaner water, or buy their first mobile, refrigerator or car.

How will society manage this? Ensuring sufficient supply of resources will pose considerable challenges.  At the same time it presents a fantastic opportunity for the next generation of UK entrepreneurs.

The Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future programme consists of:

  • Start-up funding of £5,000 to one monthly winner
  • Mentoring sessions with Shell business leaders and Shell LiveWIRE alumni
  • The opportunity to participate in the Shell LiveWIRE International Let’s Go Trade Programme
  • The opportunity to be considered for the annual £25,000 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
