Latest News / Shell LiveWIRE are on the hunt for their Top Ten Innovators


Today Shell LiveWIRE launch ‘Top Ten Innovators’, a new campaign to back the most innovative businesses to come through LiveWIRE programmes across the globe.

An invite only application process will allow LiveWIRE businesses who have been operational from 18 to 60 months to compete for up to $15,000, with three runners up receiving $10,000 and six shortlisted innovators receiving $5,000.

Innovation is a recognised tool to increase the sustainability, survivability and success of any business; the Shell LiveWIRE Top Ten Innovator initiative will highlight and reward LiveWIRE businesses that demonstrate excellence in innovation.  

Innovation is all about change – the act of making changes in your business via the introduction of new products (or improvements to existing ones), services, methods or processes.   These changes will make a significant positive difference, and that difference should be measurable in some way (e.g. an increase in jobs, turnover or customers; savings in time, cost or resource).  Real innovation will lead to sustainability, and growth.

The Top Ten Innovators Awards programme aims to accelerate entrepreneurial innovation in LiveWIRE businesses that meet the eligibility criteria (i.e. trading for between 18 months and 5 years, and have growth potential).  By creating a group of Top Ten Global Innovators the programme is supporting the creation of role models for other young entrepreneurs, and demonstrating clearly that introducing innovation supports growth and job creation.

Enterprise development is one of Shell’s three global Social Investment themes, which is why LiveWIRE programmes work hard to help young entrepreneurs turn bright ideas into a long-term source of income.  The Shell LiveWIRE programme was established over 30 years ago, and Shell is proud to have supported innovative young entrepreneurs, like the ones highlighted on this website, for so long.
