Congratulation to all of you!
Hi Mark,
it would be great if you add the url to the list so if I would like to look for example on Mark Roberts (EasyPreOrders.com) - people can click on it and go to the video and information page...
It's just an idea... right now it's really hard to find what you are looking for.
Anyway, thank you and your team for the whole and great Shell Livewire! :)
All the best!

Well done, guys!

Impressive companies made it to the Final 8 stage this year.

The top 8 are amazing. I am most interested in the two renewable energy companies. Its great what we young people come up with all these solutions...

Also, Congratulations to all Hot 40 who made it this far. I hope this is just a stepping stone to all of you.
Looking forward to hearing more. If you want to see what we are trying to develop. Go to this month nominations under Sola Line.

Best of luck to the last 8!!!

A very well done to the final 8, a very impressive list of businesses and I can't wait to meet you all on the 9th! :)

And thanks to the SLW team for a really great awards process, I didnt get through to the final 8, but the experience was fab and I think the new process of entering is so much fairer and easier - great to see a brilliant formula for awards :)
