intu Accelerate open for business

We're calling all start-ups with a passion for innovation and creativity to help shape the future of our industry

We're on the hunt for exciting start-ups to work with as part of our new innovation programme, intu Accelerate. The incubation programme aims to develop young businesses with innovative ideas that will help shape the next big thing for the retail and leisure market.

During the 10 week programme, start-ups will be fully immersed in intu receiving mentorship from senior leadership, as well as experts from across the business and tech worlds. Those selected will have unique opportunities to pilot and test their products whilst enjoying access to central London office space and potential investment.

At an exciting pitch day at Digital Catapult, London, start-ups presented their business solutions to an audience of experts.

The four categories :

Enhanced retail services: our retail services need to be as responsive and agile as possible to deliver the compelling experiences our customers and retailers expect. If your idea can juggle with predictive maintenance, knit together aspects of customer services, optimize waste management or looks at facilities management in an entirely different way, we want to hear from you.

The future of shopping: we create compelling experiences on and off line, delighting and surprising our customers wherever possible. We know customers’ wants and needs are changing and that new technologies and an innovative approach can help to meet and exceed these. If you know how to make our customers gasp with delight while they spend their valuable free time with us, then apply.

Boost retailer productivity: Helping our retailers flourish is key, so anything we can do to support and boost their productivity and sales is a must. If you’ve got that standout idea that makes it as easy as possible for our retailers to sell and the customers to buy, all whilst having a great time, we want to know about it!

Wildcard: We like looking for the new, creating something different and looking at things differently, so we had to include an open category for those who like to think out of the box. That’s what the wildcard is all about.
