“If you’re going to San Francisco…” Five years ago, a 19-year-old entered our office on the outskirts of Amsterdam with some big ideas. What began as a profile paper, took shape as a TEDx Talk, and then developed into a fully-fledged business plan, all before winter ended in 2013. Boyan Slat’s plan inspired us
In the past half year, we have worked on great projects for clients including Coca-Cola European Partners, Hudson’s Bay Company and NN Group. We also supported The Ocean Cleanup with a new technological milestone: founder and CEO Boyan Slat presented an improved design and concept of his project that will allow him to start the actual extraction of plastics from the oceans two years earlier than planned. Great work by Boyan and his team!
On 11 May, Boyan Slat, founder and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup Foundation, revealed to the world an improved design and concept of his project that will allow him to start the actual extraction of plastics from the oceans two years earlier than planned. As a proud supporter of The Ocean Cleanup, we managed media relations and public relations running up to and during the event, just as we have done for previous milestones.
