Jun 28, 2018

HENRi@Nestlé, Nestlé’s open innovation platform, is celebrating two years of innovative solutions to business challenges.

Over the last two years the platform has launched 12 projects, with over 400 applications from start-ups. Henri@Nestlé is connecting on a global scale as it continues to tackle meaningful and challenging projects across sustainability, nutrition, health and wellness.

For example, the 'Nespresso Sustainability Challenge' created an online platform so consumers can experience and participate in Nespresso’s global sustainability efforts and their positive impact on social and environmental sustainability.

The latest two challenges are no exception. 'How do you measure wellness?' is looking for partners to define wellness and measure how our mood, state of mind and enjoyment of life can be affected by the food we eat and how we experience it. 'Engaging patients for better skin health' is looking for partners to develop an innovative way to promote adherence to acne treatments, encouraging people to stick to their course of treatment and see real outcomes.

The goal of HENRi@Nestlé is to partner with the best and brightest start-ups and entrepreneurs to create innovative, high-potential solutions across Nestlé businesses. This allows the company to deliver on its purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future.
