s are limited because of time constraints we want to give each speed-dater the chance to meet as many Tesco people as possibleso please apply for a place here. Our T-Jam event gives technology start-ups an opportunity to pitch their ideas to people from around Tesco in a fun speed-dating format.

T-Jam gives technology start-ups an opportunity to pitch their ideas to people from around Tesco in a speed-dating format. Everyone gets five minutes to pitch before moving on to the next table and doing it all over again. The events are great for colleagues at Tesco as they can meet a lot of interesting and diverse companies in a short space of time.

Not just in their area of expertise but in a broad of areas. One of the start-ups said it gives them an opportunity to refine and practise their pitch as well as get a good variety of questions and feedback from the mixed background audience.

Some wanted to talk about our developer APIs Application Programme Interface and ask about our IFTTT channel If This Then That and how they might be able to build apps that link into the Tesco ecosystem — this is really exciting as it gives us an opportunity to explore new ways of making the shopping trip that little bit easier and fun!

On my trip I was ed by some of our IT leadership team, who — like me — were keen to visit this huge and thriving area.

The aim of the trip was to engage with some of the vast amounts of innovation going on and to figure out how we can best tap into it, in the future. One company organises rewards for customers based on their achievements. This has led to really high rates of engagement and people love the surprise. The other concept I want to mention, is a way of measuring the world around us.

We saw a couple of companies that could use existing technology to accurately measure an aspect of your life like your home, or your body to help you make better choices when buying items online. These 3D models are interactive and allow you to remove, move and insert items so that you can build up a new outfit or room layout.

I was lucky enough to meet with some really big players as well as those who are part of fast growing and exciting start-ups. The start-up industry is an interesting mix of venture capitalists, incubators, start-ups themselves and larger companies who still thrive there.

My trip reaffirmed to me the importance of having an open, creative and innovative working culture. As we look ahead to the changing retail landscape we know that innovation will be key to ensuring that we are successful and continue to deliver an outstanding customer experience.

You have until Friday 2nd June to apply — what are you waiting for?
