WHAT IS THE EY STARTUP CHALLENGE?

The EY Startup Challenge is a mentorship-driven programme designed to unlock new solutions, helping accelerate the product and business development of disruptive technology startups. The Challenge draws on EY’s extensive network, bringing together our people, leaders from our clients and other industry professionals to help startups refine their product, develop their business and foster their growth.

WHAT'S THE CHALLENGE?

For the next EY Startup Challenge we will work with six blockchain startups to explore how blockchain technology can be applied to tackle two specific industry challenges and to produce prototypes to pilot with us and our clients. We are looking for blockchain startups with the ambition to take on this challenge, in an area they may not have considered before.

Digital Rights Management
Today’s media world is characterised by more content, in more formats, consumed on an ever-changing mix of platforms. Blockchain technology could help media companies to improve their investments in content and better inform decisions about what rights to acquire and when, as well as where and how to use them. We are looking for startups to explore the following areas:
• Tracking and visibility of content rights as it is created and incorporated in works
• Access and control over content to ensure that the user has rights to view or use the content
• Making and receiving payments for use of proprietary content to content owners

Energy Trading
Energy trading is a highly complex sector, where transparency of the supply chain, liquidity and logistics is critical to a successful global marketplace. Blockchain has the potential to help energy trading organisations transform the way trades are created, executed, settled and fulfilled, driving down costs, increasing speed and reducing risks in the market. We will be exploring the following areas:
• Identity verification and management of counter-parties
• Creation and confirmation of transactions and deals
• Facilitation and execution of back-office processes

THE PROCESS

If your application is successful, you will be invited to a selection day with EY mentors and clients. If chosen as a winner, you will be required to base between 2 to 5 senior members of your team full-time at our innovation studio space in London for all of the programme.

What a great programme design. EY is bringing together traditional accelerator opportunities including a great curriculum, strong mentors, and investors with deep access to its client portfolio who are engaged significantly and taking direct roles with our team's development! What a great programme.
