Difference between Launch and Pivot programme

One Purpose, Two Approaches

Shell IdeaRefinery aims to increase the mix of energy startups in Singapore. The previous cohorts were based on two programme types: Launch and Pivot.

Launch programme: Aids the growth of early stage startups already focused on the energy sector but are struggling to bring their innovations to market.

Pivot Programme: Educate startups with proven technology on the energy industry, and explore opportunities to pivot their existing business models and expertise to address problems within the energy sector.
