The PMI Open Innovation Challenge is an ideation competition that Philip Morris Asia Limited (PMAL), PMI’s affiliate in Hong Kong, developed in partnership with PMI corporate venture capital fund - PM Equity Partner. The purpose of the challenge is to create potential short-term collaborations and long term partnerships with start-up businesses across Asia in order to accelerate PMI’s eco-system to create a smoke-free future.
Through this challenge, we invite the best start-ups of different stages and sectors to propose their ideas to potentially win a cash contribution and be considered for equity investment or contractual partnerships and to realize or improve their products with PMI.
How, as a startup, can you make an impact on improving the eco-system and thereby contributing to PMI's value chain or vision for smoke-free future?
We are interested in technologies that improve our understanding of and access to different consumer segments through consumer-centric data insights, innovative credit facilities, retailer financing options, etc.
