The Shell Springboard Awards programme 2009/10 is now open for entries. Shell Springboard is a programme that provides a financial boost to innovative, low carbon business ideas from across the UK. £40,000 is awarded every year, no strings attached, to eight businesses with an innovative product or service that will lead to greenhouse gas emission reductions and is commercially viable.
The deadline for applications is midnight on Friday 6 November 2009 and awards will be made in early 2010. Judging will be carried out by three regional panels of independent experts. Up to two businesses from each region will then meet a national judging panel prior to the announcement of an overall UK winner.
