(UK)

The owner of some of the UK’s biggest shopping centres has launched a startup competition to find the innovations that can “create the perfect shopping experience”.

It is a great opportunity for UK startups to spearhead a retail revolution and shape the future of shopping.

The Intu Accelerate 10 week programme – in central London – will give startups access to Intu‘s experienced team, as well as leaders from the worlds of tech and business.

“We have a history of spotting and introducing new ideas to the UK and through intu Accelerate we want to add a new level of drive and dynamism to the evolution of our shopping centre business, whether physical or digital. We’re also hoping to identify start-ups for potential investment which in turn will help us deliver a healthy return.”

There are four entry categories: enhanced retail services, the future of shopping, boost retailer productivity, wildcard. Visit the Intu Accelerate website for more details on each.

Applications are open until 2 July.
