What is ENERGYx?
Shell GameChanger and The Idea Village have teamed up again for an accelerator program, ENERGYx, in NOLA, to support startups and innovators with the potential to impact the future of Louisiana and coastal areas around the world. The 16-week, intensive accelerator focuses on companies with highly scalable technologies for coastal construction and water management.
The following criteria is applied for acceptance into ENERGYx:
- Novelty: is your technology fundamentally unique and unproven?
- Value: could your technology create substantial new value if it works?
- “Why Shell?”: is your technology relevant to Shell and the energy future?
- Testing: can the concept be proven quickly and affordably? Is the right team in place to deliver this?
ENERGYx kicks off with a week-long bootcamp in New Orleans during which up to 6 companies will be selected to move into the official accelerator program. Through a series of pitch events, one will be chosen to receive Shell GameChanger funding – up to $250,000 – to take their company to the next level!
