How long is the whole application and evaluation process?

The application process comprises several steps, and the length depends on the level and quality of information you have available at hand. To successfully complete the application process the applicant must:

  • Become a member of the World Alliance, by creating the account and completing the company profile here (5 min) & Read the Submission Rules and Conditions text and sign the Agreement (5 min);

  • Click on “Create a Solution” and fill in the first part of the Solution Submission form via the online platform (20-40 minutes) and submit it.

  • Our team then comes back to you with the outcome of your Submission: if your Solution is validated, it will already be displayed on the Solution Explorer as a Featured Solution, and you will be able to advance to the labeling process.

  • Fill the second part of the Solution Submission Form, by going to your “Solution Manager” in your Dashboard, and selecting your Featured Solution. This part of the submission form requires more detailed information than the first part and is expected to be filed in a few hours (depending on the availability of the specific information within your organization).

  • Obtain validation after “pre-screening” performed by the Solar Impulse Foundation’s team (3-7 days).

  • Modify or improve the quality of the application based on the feedback received.

Following the success of the application process, the Solution is then assigned to three independent Experts based on their expertise (online profile completed at registration) as well as the areas of application, sectors, and tags selected by the Member when submitting the Solution online. The speed of this process is dependent on many factors including Expert's availability, range of expertise available at the time, requirements for additional information/communication (chatbox) - overall ranging from 4-8 weeks.  As a result, we expect the whole process to last a maximum of 14 weeks.
