We have one £5,000 Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award to give away each month to new businesses in the UK (in their first 12 months of trading).
Does your business service the UK market? (i.e. Is your business based in the UK) Are you, and all business partners, UK residents? Will you, and all business partners, be between the ages of 16-30 (inclusive) on the last day of the month you are applying for funding? Have you been trading for less than 12 months, or, are you a pre-start that is 6 months (maximum) away from starting to trade? Our definition of trading is classed as the date you first receive payment for goods or services. (Please note, the business idea must be your own. As such, franchises or subsidiaries of other companies are not eligible.)
Do you have an innovative business idea that will provide a solution to the UK's future transport, food, energy, or natural resource challenges, or make our urban environments cleaner and more sustainable places to work and live in?
If you answered ‘yes’ to the above questions, then you are eligible for a Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award. However, please download and read through the Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Awards Scoring Criteria, and read the details on the judging process and full Terms and Conditions.
