We are delighted to announce that GKinetic has been selected as one of Hello Tomorrow’s Deep Tech Pioneers!
Every year, the Hello Tomorrow team receive thousands of applications to their deep tech startup competition, the Global Challenge. This year was no exception, beating all previous records, with 5,176 applications coming from 128 countries. The Hello Tomorrow team and network of experts carefully judged and selected the best 750 startups from the pack, based on the following 4 criteria: technological innovation, economic viability, leadership & team and potential impact on industry and society. For full details on the judging process check out the latest blog post from Hello Tomorrow: https://medium.com/@Hello_Tomorrow/what-does-breakthrough-innovation-look-like-today-34a8a76ccbbe. These shortlisted startups are called ‘Deep Tech Pioneers’ and it is a huge honour and great boost for all the team at GKinetic and DesignPro Renewables to have made the cut for this prestigious list.
Being a Deep Tech Pioneer means that we’ve been recognised by Hello Tomorrow as one of the most promising projects in deep tech to date and have also been invited to the exclusive Business and Investor Days on March 10-11th, 2020 and the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit on March 12-13th, 2020 in Paris!
Making the Deep Tech shortlist also means that our application is now in the 2nd round of evaluation and we still have a shot at being selected as a Finalist. We will be notified in January if we’re selected to pitch at the Finals for a chance to win one of the fourteen €10K Track Prizes, or even the overall €100K Prize for the Grand Winner of the Challenge so please keep your fingers crossed for us. To be named as a finalist and have a chance to pitch on the incredible Global Summit stage would be a dream come true!

Thank you to all the team and panel of judges at Hello Tomorrow for believing in our vision, we can’t wait to see you all in March.
