Walgreens Boots Alliance


Walgreens Boots Alliance is the first global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise.  Our vision is to be the first choice for pharmacy, wellbeing and beauty, caring for people and communities around the world.  Our purpose is to help people across the world lead healthier and happier lives.

We are looking for technologies and partners in the following areas;

Skincare Health and Ageing
Novel ways to protect, repair, and restore the skin and offer our consumers a step change in performance and benefits.

Consumer Healthcare
Vitamins, Minerals and Supplements leading to greater efficacy and convenience.
First aid.  Including new ways to treat or care for consumers wounds.
Incontinence.  Technologies as alternatives to non-wovens.  Diagnostics and devices to help with the management of this condition.

Diagnostics and Devices
Advanced personalisation through diagnosis of skin and healthcare needs.  Skin Therapy Devices to complement traditional skin creams bringing the clinic into the home.
All technologies should be relevant to consumers globally and suitable for sale through the WBA's retail outlets.  They could be applicable in a new product or service.


What’s in it for you?

The opportunity to work with and partner WBA, and to access our knowledge, expertise and networks in research, development and retail. We can provide global market and consumer insight.  We have the capability to take a technology, develop it with the consumer relevant proposition, scale it and sell in our retail stores or online.  We can quickly test new technologies with a large number of consumers.

A new technology 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, we are open to solutions at any stage if the opportunity is great enough.


If you have a technology which you think could be of interest and want to discuss further, please contact Paul Ellis, Head of Scouting and Partnerships at paul.ellis@boots.co.uk
