  • Top 10 Innovators Awards 2018

    Josh Burton, co-founder of Metronome Energy, won Twenty thousand USD in the Shell LiveWIRE Top Ten Innovators Awards last week, an annual competition that rewards innovative entrepreneurs from around the globe. Josh won the top award in the Energy Solutions category and was presented with the award in Kuching, Malaysia. The winners in the other categories were WormingUp from Malaysia (Retail Supply Chain), Greena from Indonesia (Social Enterprises) and De-Rabacon Plastics from Nigeria (Outstanding Achievement).

    UK-based Metronome Energy balances demands on the national energy grid during peak times using low-cost technology. Josh said that the funding, and the accompanying support, will help the company to scale-up and reach more customers in the farming industry, the initial target group for the innovation.

    In an interview prior to the awards, Josh said that his top tip for delivering a good elevator pitch was to be genuinely passionate. Having won the top award following an intense business pitch competition, you could say that this is sound advice!

    Do you have an innovative idea that you are genuinely passionate about?
