In an article discussing the increase of UK based businesses taking part in incubators, the Financial Times mention how John Lewis and Belron, partnering with LMarks are providing funding and know-how to startups.
The article says:
Belron, the company behind Autoglass, is working with five start-ups including “Sorry as a Service”, a British and Estonian group that allows businesses to automatically send bespoke gifts to valued or dissatisfied customers.
Nick Burton, head of digital and innovative technology at Belron, says “helping to change mindsets is the key benefit”. “We want to inspire our staff by seeing the pace at which a start-up can make decisions or change course and bring things to life.”
