Where Big Meets small

Drugstore Start Up Accelerator

If you’re part of a start up that can provide what you think are innovative technology ideas for the local restaurant industry, submit your company bio today.

We’re looking at any and all South African based start ups – from mobile app developers to alternative payment solution vendors. You can be beacon junkies, Arduino fiends or even general IOT tinkerers – we don’t care if your core focus is something entirely unrelated to the restaurant industry – we’re keen to hear why you believe you’re the right partner for Publicis Machine at our inaugural Drugstore – we’re more about the people and thinking than your current product demo, so keep that in mind.

For the first phase, your application need only take the form of an email that provides us with a company bio and a short “one page” motivation of why you think you’d be a great partner as we aim to innovate the local restaurant industry. From there we’ll narrow things down.

Submit your application to drugstore@publicismachine.com to get the ball rolling or to find out more.


The Process

  1. Submit an application by the 16th of October 2015 and tell us why you’re the right tech partner for us. A simple email might suffice, but be as big & bold as you like.
  2. We’ll evaluate all the submissions and hold face to face interviews to determine our 3 finalists. We’ll announce these on the 19th of October 2015.
  3. On the 2nd of November 2015, finalists will be flown to johannesburg to attend a week long, expenses paid incubation session. This will include trade visits and brand inductions.
  4. The overall winners will be announced at a function on the 6th of November.
