    Our goals

    Our progress in 2022

    We seek innovative solutions that accelerate the development of the convenience ecosystem. We work with our suppliers on product innovations, which are exclusive to Żabka stores. We attract new partners through our Venture Studio and its following programmes: 

    The Startup Impact Programme: delivered in partnership with the Koźmiński Business Hub, this aims to support young companies which have a positive environmental impact and deliver against selected UN SDGs. Winners work with experts, enabling them to accelerate progress and test their solutions in Poland’s fastest-growing convenience chain. 

    Foodtech Lab: aiming to identify new protein, recycling and repackaging opportunities, this enables start-ups to pilot their solutions within our ecosystem. Following launch, we rapidly received close to 150 applications from 20+ countries. 

    Żabka Future Lab: enabling us to find solutions that deliver a better shopping experience. In total, we contacted 1,335 start-ups from 69 countries, with the majority from Poland (25% of the total), Germany and Israel. 

    We’ve also partnered in the programmes of external experts, including the MIT Enterprise Forum CEE and the Huge Thing. We’ve encouraged hundreds of start-ups across the world to increase their activities in our region. We’ve tested various digital-twin, carbon-farming and digital-signature solutions.
