A cross-Halma team, with 4 Apollo members, won first prize for Halma's Convergence Accelerator Programme.

After 16 weeks of intense work, Matt, Oli, Pete and Jon from Apollo, along with our colleagues Lorenzo from Argus and Dave & Aston from Advanced, won first prize for their Safe Escape business proposal.

The final pitches took place in Buckinghamshire, where each of the four teams delivered their pitches to an audience of around 50 executives from across Halma, including a panel of judges.

Safe Escape's pitch saw the team explain their plans to improve building evacuation in the event of a fire with a dynamic product to route people out of the building.

Closing the day, Andrew Williams, congratulated all the teams and their Convergence Coaches and reminded the audience of why the Convergence Accelerator is so important:

“The Convergence Accelerator not only helps us develop these specific ideas, but it is also about building this particular capability to work in partnerships, both internal and external. We know that this is a capability that we all need to get better at in the future and what we saw today gave us some good examples of this capability being developed.”
