How we help our winners expand their work

Our winners are inspiring a brighter future: including creating low-carbon buildings, increasing energy access in off-grid communities, promoting more sustainable ways of travel and helping people get smarter in how they use energy. Their inspiring stories show how, with ingenuity and determination, even the toughest problems can be overcome.

  • Business, technical and financial advice from our partners
  • Media exposure and help with communications
  • Introductions to investors and finance
  • Networking opportunities and brokering new partnerships
