Top Ten Innovators

Let’s Go Trade is an initiative of Shell LiveWIRE global to support LiveWIRE entrepreneurs to establish routes to international trade.

Currently, fifteen nominated businesses from eight Shell LiveWIRE countries are exploring business opportunities outside their country boundaries, thanks to Shell LiveWIRE global funding. Businesses undertaking international trade visits cover a wide range of sectors, from solar energy to mushroom farming and waste management to medical products.

The aim of Let’s Go Trade is to stimulate international learning and innovation to drive business development, deliver competitive advantage, and provide opportunities for business expansion.

Top Ten Innovators awards programme is another exciting initiative of Shell LiveWIRE global to recognise and reward the most innovative businesses that have benefited from Shell LiveWIRE country programmes within the past five years.

Innovation is a key way in which entrepreneurs can increase the sustainability, survivability and success of their business. The window for nominated applications is now open and closes on 11 August, and there will be a public vote from 1 – 8 September, where visitors to the website can choose their favourite innovator. The Top Ten Winners will be announced during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2017.

We are pleased to announce that Mark Gainsborough (EVP New Energies, Shell) will chair the Top Ten judging panel. All entrepreneurs making it through to the Top Ten will be receive awards, based on the judges’ ranking, with funding ranging from $5,000 to $15,000. Watch this space for more news!
