Partnership with VivaTech

We are an "ecosystem partner" of the world’s rendez-vous for startups and innovation that will take place in Paris from May 16 to 18, 2019.

Co-organized by Publicis Groupe and Groupe Les Echos, VivaTech is an international event dedicated to the growth of startups, digital transformation and innovation. More than 100,000 visitors attended the 3rd edition in 2018, an increase of more than 47% in one year. Viva Technology 2019 will bring together startups, business leaders and executives, investors, academics, students and media from across the globe.

For the fourth consecutive year, VivaTech is hosting the Open Innovation Challenges to foster cooperation between startups and established companies while increasing business opportunities in global tech. Startups are invited to apply with innovative solutions to the Challenges of leading companies in their sectors. Deadline for applications: February 15, 2019.

Thousands of startups from around the world are expected to apply this year, but only 1000 or so will be selected. They will win an exhibition space on a "Lab" hosted by one of VivaTech’s major partners, and they will have the opportunity to establish privileged links with leading companies present during the three-day event in Paris.
