BELOW

The Lafayette Plug and Play innovation platform - an accelerator dedicated to retail and fashion created by the partnership between the Galeries Lafayette Group and Plug and Play Tech Center - and Carrefour France - the French largest food retailer - announce the signature of a new partnership with the aim of uniting their expertise and strengthening open innovation in retail.

With this collaboration, Carrefour will accelerate its open innovation approach, already well established within its businesses, thanks to the accelerator’s best French and international startups specialized in retail.

Carrefour will benefit from close relationships with startups and the setting up of pilots addressing various topics of robotics, supply chain and digital in order to support the French retailer’s e-commerce projects.

Lafayette Plug and Play will enable the acceleration of Carrefour’s open innovation initiatives thanks to various assets; for example, by setting up meetings on specific issues such as the analysis and use of data in the store. The Carrefour Innovation Department will also be involved in the entire selection process of Lafayette Plug and Play startups.


Lafayette Plug and Play’s startups will benefit from the sharing of experiences and an expanded network within the Carrefour Group.
