Summary

Background

Logitech designs products that have an everyday place in people's lives, connecting them to the digital experiences they care about. More than 35 years ago, Logitech started connecting people through computers, and now it’s a multi-brand company designing products that bring people together through music, gaming, video, and computing.

The Future Positive Challenge is for disruptive companies, startups and pioneering engineers who want to drive change in a multi-billion dollar industry. As a sustainability-minded partner looking to make an impact on the world, you understand that the consumer electronics industry needs to balance available resources with environmental impact. Apply if you are in the pre seed or early series funding stages and looking to find meaningful connections to scale your business. 

Challenge

Have an answer to safer, scalable, cost effective electronics for high capacity batteries and energy storage? We're looking for solutions featuring alternative materials to lithium or cobalt and techniques for battery recycling. Submit your ideas.

Logitech are looking for applications in the following areas, but all relevant applications are welcome.

Novel technologies and processes for energy harvesting and storage in consumer electronics

  • Alkaline or Li-ion recharge battery
  • Novel battery chemistry
  • Alternative constructions
  • Recycled / Low footprint materials
  • Low energy process
  • Electrode coating process
  • Electrode design 
  • Solid state battery
  • Lower power wireless communications ICs, incl. audio
  • Energy harvesting on products (KERS, high efficiency solar, etc)

What's in it for you?

A successful proposal would mean either working directly with Logitech or one of their supplier partners in implementing the solution and working as a collective team to bring the innovation to market.
