New Energy Challenge finals at the Web Summit in Lisbon

Written on November 22, 2022

This year, the hot topic of the New Energy Challenge was the energy system and the #CCUS proving that this is one of the main challenges to address climate change and that Qaptis has a key role to play with its carbon capture solution.

After being selected as one of the 10 finalists in the #NEC2022 program, an extensive network of incredible experts coached our team for several weeks on critical topics such as product-market fit and leadership. We gained valuable insights and feedback that will help us further develop and refine our solution to better meet the needs of the market.

The final showstopper was presenting our startup to a high-level panel of judges at the New Energy Challenge finals, alongside nine other outstanding entrepreneurs. This year, the finals were held during the Web Summit 2022 in Lisbon, the largest gathering of entrepreneurs in the world, which brought together over 70,000 people and companies that are disrupting the tech industry and reshaping the world!
