SHV Energy Colleagues 'Dare to Innovate' During Hackathon 2023

Bringing together SHV Energy’s most passionate and innovative problem-solvers.
For three exciting days in October, 30 brilliant minds came together in SHV Energy’s head office in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands, to collaborate and co-create new solutions to real-world commercial challenges.

SHV Energy colleagues from across the company’s global brands partnered with specialists from our vendor community who were invited to join our first-ever Hackathon. Together, six teams explored specific topics and developed proposals, which were then pitched to the management team. 

The high-energy event tapped into the power of teamwork while demonstrating our people’s curiosity and their passion for our mission: Advancing Energy Together. The teams approached the commercial challenges by harnessing their diverse knowledge, expertise and creative problem-solving skills. 

Thanks to the efforts of everyone involved, the Hackathon resulted in several innovative proposals, which could provide inspiration for future projects across SHV Energy’s business units around the world. 

SHV Energy is grateful to all participants who contributed to the success of the event, and for demonstrating their entrepreneurial mindset in line with our values. On behalf of the event team, SHV Energy would also like to thank the following organisations for mentoring and advising our  Hackathon participants: Adaptfy, Board of Innovation, Conclusion, Linden-IT, Mendix, Metyis, Michael Koenka, Microsoft, and NEWCRAFT
