We like to spend our time solving our partners’ biggest issues...and prefer to tackle those issues “"head-on". For us, a truly successful partnership is one that evolves to the point where we can finish each others’ sentences...and ultimately speak the same language.
The following is a brief sample of the many companies, suppliers, and individuals that we partner and collaborate with in P&G Corporate Platforms.
Now owned by Life Technologies
"P&G Corporate Platforms is widely acclaimed as one of the best strategic partners ever seen in the Silicon Valley healthcare ecosystem. They have an extraordinary understanding of consumer health and are deeply committed to their partner companies. I consider the P&G Corporate Platforms team as both advisors and trusted colleagues."
"shopkick and P&G Corporate Platforms have developed one of the most unique partnerships between the Silicon Valley-based innovation world and the brand world. P&G has been embedded in our Palo Alto, CA office for the past 1 1/2 years. The daily engagement has led to designing shopkick as a mobile app that has value for consumers, retailers and brands alike – we both call it the 'three-legged stool approach'. And after 6 months in the market, shopkick reached 1 million users. Today, it is the largest location-based shopping app in the world. P&G has helped us get there through our powerful partnership."
"We started with 1 employee and one doctor. The next thing I knew, we were over 100 employees and 100+ doctors with revenues growing at a dynamic rate. Clearly we needed big time help. Along came Corporate Platforms (P&G). They added available cash, experience and most importantly, people. It was a great marriage and we continue to enjoy a warm professional and personal relationship."
"Having worked over the years as a marketing executive with or at Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Denny's, I've seen strong franchise support organizations and leaders. The franchise support teams at Tide Dry Cleaners® and Mr. Clean Car Wash® rank among the best that I have ever seen. Their expertise spans the spectrum -- real estate, finance, operations and most importantly, marketing, both at the local store and DMA level. They will be a trusted and valued partner to any Tide or Mr. Clean franchisee."
"Institute for the Future (IFTF) worked with P&G Corporate Platforms since its founding as a futures outpost, thinking ten years ahead about external future forces that will affect people, digital media, and shopping globally. Bob Johansen, IFTF Distinguished Fellow, is P&G's primary point of contact."
"The organizational mission of the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance is to accelerate wireless health innovation that will create valuable solutions for healthcare problems, globally. We started the organization with the best technology and healthcare companies. P&G represents the best consumer company in the world and it rounds out the convergence of life sciences, technology and end user knowledge that is necessary to deliver the bundled solutions that will dominate what will be the most valuable market in the world – health and healthcare."
"The IFA is proud to work with P&G Corporate Platforms to promote entrepreneurial innovation. P&G Corporate Platforms and it franchise division (Agile Pursuits) are providing business ownership opportunities for thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs."
"Working with P&G's Corporate Platforms has been a great experience. We were impressed by the speed and thoughtfulness with which the Corporate Platforms team found areas of common interest, performed due diligence, and ultimately made an equity investment in Navigenics. Our experience with the Corporate Platforms team and with P&G at large has been outstanding. They truly are 'hands-on investors' in the best sense, proactively leveraging P&G's massive infrastructure, talents, and strengths to help our joint investment improve its branding and expand globally.
On another dimension, P&G is an enterprise customer to several of our portfolio companies. They understand how best to partner with start-ups to harness the power of innovation…a win-win relationship "
"P&G's commitment to Corporate Platforms has been impressive. They've worked closely with a number of Kleiner Perkins companies and been helpful in areas ranging from strategy to business development to revenue generating opportunities. Having a dedicated resource in the Valley has been invaluable leading to frequent touch points and rapid follow through."
