Our decade-long commitment to open innovation has enabled us to form close bonds with entrepreneurs to find solutions that not only allow us to transform the current energy model, but will also contribute to the economic recovery of the country.
During the three days of South Summit 2020 , from 6 to 8 October, experts and innovation leaders from around the world will address different themes or "tracks" in this years “televised” event. Our experts will participate in four of the tracks:
- Mobility & Smartcities
- Energy & Sustainability
- Consumer Trends
As always, at this edition 100 finalist startups will have the opportunity to present their ideas in the hope of winning one of the categories. At Endesa, we will be part on the jury that selects the winning startups in different tracks, and we will present the finalists in the Energy & Sustainability category of the competition, following criteria such as innovation, scalability, economic viability, the team of professionals the project is comprised of, and the investment interest shown in the project. Finally, the winners of each themed areas will compete to decide who is the overall winner of South Summit Madrid 2020, where we will also serve on the jury.
