“The Big Energy Idea” - launches

 “The Big Energy Idea”, launches backed by Centrica plc and Telefonica respectively.

Energy entrepreneurs with digital ideas or businesses that create social impact have until 28 February to put them forward in order to secure a Big Energy Idea place and the chance for their business to be accelerated in the Wayra Academy in London.

They’re looking for businesses that make the most of digital and new technologies to innovate in the energy space, which also have a social impact. After passing a selection process, the three best digital projects will take part in an acceleration programme which provides them with:

·         Mentors
·         A space for the team to work at the Wayra Academy in the heart of London
·         Potential to access minimum £50k investment from Ignite Social Enterprise LP
·         Potential access to the Centrica and Telefonica Groups’ businesses, employees and customers

If you have an idea that you think fits our criteria, apply before 28 February. If your business isn’t digital but is energy focussed and has a social impact then we still want to hear from you as there are seven non Wayra places available on the Big Energy Idea, all receiving tailored support from Centrica and potential investment from Ignite Social Enterprise LP.
