SPECIALISTS IN ENERGY TRANSITION, CLEAN ENERGY & E-MOBILITY
Our mission is to propel the entrepreneurs and leaders scaling game-changing solutions to the world's biggest energy, climate, and transportation challenges.
We partner with the mavericks and trailblazers trying to solve humanity's BHP's (Big Hairy Problems). Through our partnerships, we support fast-paced scale-up companies to build high-performing diverse teams as part of an empowered organizational culture. We are passionate advocates of equitable organizations - diversity and inclusion increases creativity, productivity, innovation and ultimately positive impact.
It all began in early 2017 with four entrepreneurs and a crazy idea.
Concerned by the challenges facing the energy industry and the global need to accelerate energy transition, we launched the Energy Disruptors: UNITE event series.
The summits were designed to boldly address the opportunities and challenges presented by the energy transition. Global thought-leaders took to the stage to discuss breakthrough technologies, new business models, emerging global trends, policy, and the opportunity for multi-stakeholder and diverse collaborations.
After only three years and two award-winning summits, what was once an audacious goal to unite the world's boldest energy trailblazers quickly became the fastest-growing future energy and mobility event in the world.
