One weekend to start an ENERGY REVOLUTION

There's no more time to be wasted, climate change has become a global urgency. Given the key role of Energy sector for the issue, we believe that the transition towards cleaner and optimised energy production, transport & distribution, consumption needs to take place now. Participate in out 54-hour event where people come together to find innovative solutions to the world's most urgent issue!
About the event?  Over 54h (Friday to Sunday evening), you will be challenged to pitch ideas, form teams, develop products and business models. To maximize your learning potential, current energy leaders will be by your side to mentor through this challenging weekend and prepare for launching your own company! 

What do you need to bring?   Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.   Your idea should be something related to energy transition and  something you have not previously worked on. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have previously worked on your idea.
