Preparing for the future: work with us to identify your high potential innovation opportunities and design prototypes you will be able to test in the market.

We think the future's going to come from start-ups. We know that the answers aren't in our industry right now and so for us these partnerships, they're not something that's on the side or fun, they are core to the future of the industry and of Unilever.

Startups are really pushing the envelope when it comes to what is the next thing in advertising and we want to make sure we're keeping our ear to the ground.

I get dozens of emails a week from companies I’ve never heard about, who want to meet with me next week because they say it's really important. Figuring out who are the best players in the space is critical to our business.
