  • 2017's Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award Announcement!

    2017 was a fantastic year for Shell LiveWIRE with 12 outstanding entrepreneurs winning a Smarter Future Award and joining our alumni network. These entrepreneurs are now on the longlist for 2017 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award!

    Although each longlisted entrepreneur has a unique business model, product or service they all have one thing in common – they are all helping accelerate a smarter, more sustainable future.

    Combatting water pollution
