Tesco and Olio have been on a 5-year journey to create a groundbreaking national partnership which has enabled Tesco to be a market leader with regard to fulfilling its commitment to zero edible store waste. When the partnership first began at 2 stories in 2017, Olio was an early stage start-up with limited resources – and a lot of ambition.

In this talk you’ll learn what makes for a successful corporate start-up partnership, including: how to set clear success metrics, how to adopt an incremental approach to innovation, and how to engage employees and customers along the journey.
