Collaboration won’t just happen by putting different types of businesses in one room. So instead, we’re going to facilitate and manage relationships, like any matchmaker would. The Drugstore has a suite of different products and initiatives available, designed to take companies from first date through to potential marriage.
For those just starting out, first date initiatives include ‘Meet the Makers’ workshops and Supper Clubs, where you’ll get to interact with category relevant start-ups and talk about industry topics and opportunities. From there, hackdays, open innovation programmes and tech MBAs all strengthen the bond between big and small organisations. For those ready to commit, incubator programmes are available, allowing big and small companies to nurture radically innovative products together.
