Startacus looks at the Shell Springboard Awards
by Startacus Admin
It seems like all awards, competitions and prizes at the moment are for the greater good! Just in the last few weeks we have highlighted the Vodafone Foundation - for socially conscious App Developers, The RAPTOR SME Small Grants Programme for Apps related to the Retail, Transport or the Urban Environment, and The Young Foundation have launched a new business support programme – aimed at social ventures that are looking to grow.
So, to round off this crusade, (we need to find some competitions that are just for the money!!) we thought we should highlight the Shell Springboard awards 2013 which is now open for entries. Going all green on us, these awards are to provide up to 40k to 9 innovative Green and environmentally conscious small companies based in the UK.
With every business now having to get serious about the environment, you are probably not going to win an award for getting your employers to turn off their computers at home time. These awards are to acknowledge the next big ideas in low carbon enterprise and innovation, rewarding innovative and commercially viable business ideas that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Applications are currently being accepted up until 5pm Friday, 18th January 2013.
Take a look at the Shell Springboard site for guidance, and good luck to all the applicants who apply this year.
