The New Energy Challenge consists of two distinct tracks: a track for start-ups in TRL 2-5 stage, up until and including seed stage and a track for scale-ups in TRL 6-9 stage with early revenues, market validation by pilot(s), Series A and higher.
Track 1 – Start-ups
Track One offers early-stage start-ups an intensive programme designed by YES!Delft for finalists to validate their business plans and exchange ideas with coaches and experts. The winning finalist will receive €100,000 towards a proof of concept within the Shell GameChanger programme, giving them a quick and cost-effective way to test the technical and commercial viability of their solution.
Track 2 – Scale-ups
Track Two offers scale-ups the opportunity to engage with experts from Rockstart and exchange knowledge and ideas as well the opportunity to design a pilot proposal. The winner will further develop and potentially execute the pilot, together with Shell Ventures and Shell’s Hydrogen, New Fuels or Chemicals business.
