18-Nov-2019

The world-leading startup accelerator, Startupbootcamp (SBC), is excited to announce their newest partnership with Shell as well as the launch of the Shell StartUp Engine Program. 

The Shell StartUp Engine is a global innovation program for early to mid-stage energy startups looking to develop their capabilities and power business growth within the smart energy landscape. Designed together with Startupbootcamp and Shell, the innovation program is focused on empowering smart energy startups to disrupt the current status quo in the energy sector. 

As an energy company leading the transition to a low carbon future, Shell provides startups that take part in the program with the credibility needed to build trust with customers, partners and investors globally. The program also leverages the global network of Startupbootcamp and Shell, which includes mentors, subject matter experts, coaches, program alumni, and other ecosystem partners. 

The Shell StartUp Engine program is looking to partner with startups working in areas such as renewables, energy storage, smart grids, electric mobility, energy trading, smart cities and smart homes. 

CEO of Startupbootcamp Australia, Trevor Townsend, said, 

“The Shell StartUp Engine Program offers startups a new form of collaboration with corporates, and with that, a new opportunity to facilitate innovation. We at SBC are extremely excited to be working with Shell on this initiative and helping them transition to a sustainable future.”

CEO of Startupbootcamp, Innoleaps and The Talent Institute The Netherlands, Peter van Grinsven, also said:

“Innovation is at the core of what we do at SBC. We are thrilled to be bringing the global energy community together on one program and we are really proud to launch this new innovative accelerator model we’ve co-created with Shell.”

The Shell StartUp Engine Program is scheduled to be announced during the week of Entrepreneurship, which takes place from 18 to 22 November. The program will be open for applications from startups early next year.
