Y/STARTUP

ENGINE

We go beyond and bring creative minds together 

Welcome to our 2022 global startup engine to solve your problems you do not have a solution for!

where does your shoe pinch? 

Offering fashion-as-a-service, creating omni experiences and aiming for selling to produce - while the climate and business goals are pressing. Do you feel the thrill? Because we do. 

 

In 2022, we will launch globally an open call for innovators & startups to match our challenges with fresh minds. A selected number of H&M Group teams will have the chance to pilot solutions.

Tell us your biggest pain points within your business area and on the path to H&M Group's direction. We will activate a global community of startups & entrepreneurs to ideate, develop and test prototypes that make an impact on your every day.  

 

Take 5 minutes now to tell us, where your shoe pinches. If your problem is selected, you can participate in the global innovation challenge as a mentor who guides with a business perspective, a sponsor who supports with resources - or both.
