Shell Origination & Investments Team – Lagos February 13th
Join us to learn more about Shell Trading & Supply and it’s Origination & Investments team. We will share the work we are doing at the cutting edge of the industry and data. Also come to meet a new project we are launching called NEO, with the mission of launching new business models at scale and how NEO interacts with startups and industry. Just as importantly, come to meet with other local influencers and the startups they are dedicating their time and energy to. We hope this group will spawn thought provoking conversation and lead to many new connections.
Introduction to O&I and NEO:
The Origination and Investment team’s role is the origination and implementation of transformational business models and the delivery of integrated physical deals across Shell Trading & Supply at scale. It is commodity-agnostic and provides long and medium term, customer-pulled options for Shell. Both activities are enabled by new partnerships:
Integrating from within T&S and collaborating with downstream / upstream and external partners to unlock value and compete
Bringing strategic partners of scale and addressing customers’ increasing need for a cross-product value proposition
Launching transformational business models at scale that re-engineer the core of T&S and the industry for profit
Meet our newest initiative NEO. NEO, is a planned independent co-creation and investment vehicle. Its aim is to play a unique role in helping data, digital technology innovators and start-ups to understand and monetize core needs and opportunities for some of the world’s largest industries. Starting with Shell and energy, Neo’s approach to demand-led venturing and innovation is geared toward creating game-changing new business ventures that help make a better future.
NEO is designed to engage the broader industry, business leaders, start-ups and tech entrepreneurs like yourselves to partner with NEO in identifying and accelerating new revolutionary ventures. We look forward to hosting and meeting you and hope this will kick off many new relationships as we explore possible areas of collaboration.
Nigeria is NEO’s inaugural launch and a testament to the the history and importance of Nigeria to Shell. We could not be more excited to share our vision for the future of energy while exploring unlikely partnerships, diving deep into thought provoking conversation from startups and entrepreneurs at the forefront of innovation and forging new lasting relationships with you.
