We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with IBM to launch our latest Innovation Challenge with European energy giant Enel.

This is a great opportunity for ambitious companies to help solve problems for one of Europe's household names who are looking to create positive changes within their industry.

A select few stand-out applicants will be chosen by Enel and IBM to take on their challenges. And the winners will get the opportunity to accelerate the development of their solutions via a paid Proof of Concept!

The Enel Innovation Challenge

Enel is aiming to improve employee well-being management while tracking anonymised employee data. Their primary areas of focus are activity & fitness, healthy workspaces, and stress management. So Enel is welcoming pitches from partners to help them improve employee wellbeing through the tracking of behaviours such as movement, activity, and mood – while looking for solutions using data to interact and deliver wellbeing recommendations.

The challenge holds huge wins for the best tech and those taking part could receive potential procurement of market-ready capability, ability to develop a PoC or trial implementation with the support of Enel’s Innovation team, the opportunity to showcase your solution to key stakeholders within Enel S.p.A (with the support of IBM and Whitespace) and a potential partnership with Enel and IBM to access new markets and accelerate product and/or service development.

This is now the 5th Innovation Challenge Whitespace has run alongside IBM and a global corporation. Since 2019, we have honed the process of running successful and engaging IC’s which drive innovative technology across various industries.
