Welcome Spring 2022 Batch!!

Welcome Spring 2022 Batch!!

We would like to welcome the incredible fellows and founders from our Spring 2022 Batch of Startup Shell this semester!

Many would agree that COVID-19 posed a challenge for many entrepreneurs in the startup space. However, we are proud to say that our new batch of founders persevered despite all challenges and proved that their passions and dedication to leave a positive impact can overcome any obstacle thrown their way.

After deliberating over 30 founder and 55 fellow applications this semester, we narrowed down our selection to 12 impressive ventures that were working on innovative solutions to some of the most prevalent issues we face and 28 talented fellows with diverse skill sets!

While our new batch is definitely professionally talented, we also have a few fun facts we want to share about our new Shellers. We have a Sheller who placed Top 16 in the Midwest Beatbox Battle (2017), co-created a YouTube channel with over 96K subscribers, was published in Nature magazine, and specializes in pogo sticking.

As we say to every new batch, Startup Shell looks for entrepreneurs who reflect the ideals and culture of Shell; we are: "a community of highly driven people, passionate about building projects and tackling solutions head on." We truly are confident that our Spring 2022 batch will carry on this culture and are thrilled to welcome them to the Shell community!
