Siqens, with its innovative Ecoport 800 fuel cell and its market approach, was selected for the TOP 500 Deeptech Startups of the Hello Tomorrow Challenge. A total of 4500 worldwide applications were received in the renowned science and technology competition.

Possible effects: The company must have the potential to exert a significant long-term influence on the economy and/or society.
Leadership: The company must show visionary leadership with the ability to lead the company to success.

Contenders for the Hello Tomorrow Challenge can win a variety of prizes. Above all, it is crucial for us to increase the visibility of our technology solution and to enter into direct discussions with exciting partners and customers. Both the Investor Day on 13 March 2019 and the Global Summit on 14 and 15 March 2019 are ideal locations for presenting, exchanging and developing sustainable partnerships. With strong partners we are getting one step closer to our vision of a diesel-free power supply in the off-grid markets.
