During each of the virtual pitch sessions, up to three specially selected startup finalists of the Safety Accelerator programme will pitch their solutions addressing one of our three Innovation Challenges set in collaboration with Shell, Benugo and Wallenius Wilhelmsen, to a panel of expert judges, investors and key Safetytech stakeholders.
Virtual Pitch Sessions Format:
