Walgreens Boots Alliance is the first global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise. Their vision is to be the first choice for pharmacy, wellbeing and beauty – caring for people and communities around the world and helping everyone to lead healthier and happier lives.
We live in a time of incredible challenge and opportunities for our health and wellbeing – the world of pharmacy and healthcare is constantly changing. WBA’s ambitions are to continue to grow their research and innovation partnerships and search for innovative products in consumer healthcare (OTC) categories such as Allergy.
It is estimated that one in four people will suffer from an allergy at some point in their lives.
Walgreens Boots Alliance are looking for technologies, insights and expertise which are relevant to their continued development of products and services which either can treat, help prevent or identify susceptibility to Allergic Rhinitis (Hayfever).
The solutions may be relevant to topical or systemic products, consumer devices, diagnostic services, educational programmes, or otherwise. They should be relevant to consumers globally and suitable for sale through WBA's retail channels.
What’s in it for you?
The opportunity to work with and partner WBA, who can offer their knowledge, expertise and networks in research, development and retail. WBA can provide global market and consumer insight, and the capability, to take an idea or innovation and develop it into a consumer relevant proposition to sell in their retail stores or online.
WBA are open to propositions from individuals, consultants, universities, spinout companies and SMEs. A successful application could lead to partnerships/joint ventures to co-develop and bring an idea to market, exclusive licensing of technologies or IP, or potentially the opportunity to become a part of the wider WBA business.
Ideally solutions will have some proof of concept evidence. However, WBA are open to solutions at any stage if the opportunity is great enough.
