Hello Tomorrow visionaries vote Teraloop to global Top 500

Humanity’s big challenges need big solutions, attract big ideas and innovative approaches. Our challenge is to enable the up-scaling of renewable energy sources of electrical energy, with energy storage as the critical enabling technology. The urgent need for a breakthrough technology in energy storage is not in question; technical commentators and analysts such as the Bank of America have declared large scale storage as the “holy grail” of the energy industry. But pursuing this challenge is not enough: for Teraloop to develop this disruptive technology, we must demonstrate excellence, ingenuity, and we must position ourselves as thought leaders in our field.

This is why we are honoured to announce that we were selected amongst the Top 500 startups list of Hello Tomorrow, the world’s pre-eminent early-stage startup competition for science and deep technology. The competition is due to take place at the Hello Tomorrow Summit in Paris, October 2016. We will be competing with the world’s top researchers, inventors and entrepreneurs for recognition and prizes. You can read more on the competition here.

Beyond the challenge, going to the conference further gives us the opportunity to meet prolific investors in each sector, industrial leaders (Airbus, Google[x], IBM, Roche, Air Liquide, Cisco,etc.), international media (Bloomberg, BBC, Wired, etc.) and influencers.

Teraloop is proud to add this distinctive award to its current honorific portfolio. Indeed, we have previously been selected as Top 30 Most Promising Energy Startups of Europe at the 2015 Vaasa Energy Week, while acting as keynote speaker in their 2016 edition. We are also featured by many public institutions such as Finpro and Cleantech Finland, Tekes, and have received substantial media coverage.
