Innovating the competition
Every year, Schneider Electric hosts its global student competition, Schneider Go Green, inviting students to submit their innovative and bold ideas on energy management and automation for a smarter and more sustainable future from around the globe.
Usually, by this time of the year, students would be together at the innovation summit networking with business leaders and presenting their projects in front of global judges. This year, however, will be the first time Schneider Go Green’s global finals will be hosted digitally.
2020’s uncertain scenario has pushed everyone into adaptability mode- our capacity to re-think, be creative, and adapt ourselves and do business as “unusual”. Luckily enough, Schneider Electric has been always one step ahead in digital, always encouraging all #SEGreatPeople to dare to disrupt. Therefore, we announced the top 8 teams in August, and now, to close the final chapter, they will present their ideas and compete against each other virtually during the digital finals on September 10th, 2020 in a private session.
To keep the excitement, we will be joined by special guests for our first-ever live stream of the Schneider Go Green pre-show on September 8th!
Together with Charise Le, Tina Mylon, and Sonali Satpathy, they will talk about early career opportunities, empowerment, and what it is like to work with us. We’ll also have special guests from business incubation, Edison Almeida and Prashanthi Sudhakar, to talk about how Schneider sees innovation and looks for in an entrepreneur profile. This stream is open to all students worldwide- you can join us by clicking here.
At the end of the stream, we’ll announce the launch of the 2021 edition of Schneider Go Green! Registrations will be open and also, for the 1st time, a partnership with another company: AVEVA! Want to know more? Click here and let us know you’ll be attending the Pre-Show on September 8th.
As you see, game changers and innovators are at the core of Schneider. Are you a student that can re-shape the future with us? Let’s stay connected!
