About the program

In every edition of the Booster Program, Electrolux is looking for innovative solutions to address the several and different company challenges by leveraging external innovation opportunities that might come from different industries.

Proposed solutions will be evaluated and selected according to their maturity level and other key parameters, and could be industrialized into Electrolux products and processes within a 12-month timeframe.

To collect innovative solutions, a Call4Innovation is launched every time to all external innovators, with the final goal to quickly identify the most promising solutions to be admitted to the Booster Program.

How it works

We are looking for partners eager to work with a worldwide industrial company in order to co-develop tailor-made solutions that can be integrated in our products or in our processes, addressing Electrolux specific challenges.

The selected partners will collaborate with us to develop an MVP of a customized solution, starting from their current proposal.

In doing so, they will have the possibility to work closely with our team of experts and free access to our labs and to the Innovation Factory, our new space for co-working and prototyping.
