To achieve this, the company launched the second edition of a start up challenge, called “New Energy Challenge”, aiming at being more creative in terms of media outreach and activation. Through this initiative, Shell wanted to prove its involvement in the energy transition, radiate its commitment to open innovation, support start-ups to scale up and provide a platform to facilitate the collaboration between startup initiatives in the Netherlands.
