We will work with the selected startup for a period of three months up to two years, depending on which track the startup is selected for and provide them with access to Shell’s capability in technology development and product commercialization, along with mentorship and a fixed sum investment. Startups must fulfil the following criteria:

  • Operate in an Indian city (or are based overseas and looking for 'soft-landing' facilities in India)
  • Be post lab PoC (typically TRL level 4-7)
  • All tracks require some physical presence ranging from 1-3 days per month depending on the track. We understand you have a startup to run and wish to support, not disrupt, those efforts.
  • Business must be in a relevant field or activity (see Our Themes)
