The Battery Challenge by LG Chem

There are presently no open calls for applications.

A new generation of battery technologies is upon us.

The Battery Challenge by LG Chem is a startup innovation competition that will award up to eight startups that present breakthrough battery solutions.

Up to five participants will win cash prizes ranging from $10k to $40k with no strings attached. On top of that, finalists will have the opportunity to develop a commercial partnership with LG Chem and spend a week in Seoul.

While early stage ventures are preferred, we encourage all battery companies who are interested in partnering with LG Chem to apply. 

We have extended the application deadline until next Friday November 9, 11:59pm Pacific Time due to high interest from many promising innovators.

If you have any questions, email Andrew at We’ll do our best to reply within 24 hours.
