VivaTechnology - Paris

Last June, VivaTechnology took place, the world's leading event for start-ups and innovation. This major exhibition was organised in collaboration with the INSEEC group and HY-Plug was delighted to participate.

In one of their articles, Omnes Education generously mentioned our participation in this event and we would like to thank them.

"From 16 to 19 June 2021, 1,000 students from the 12 schools of the INSEEC U. group will have the privilege of participating in VivaTechnology, the global meeting place for start-ups and innovation in Paris. They will support their fellow entrepreneurs from the engineering school ECE, who will have the chance to present one of their start-ups to the thousands of visitors expected.

A true innovation playground, VivaTech offers the opportunity to discover the latest technologies in a wide range of fields: fintech, healthcare, transport, AI and green technology. The start-up WISP - an AI solution for geolocation and data collection to help local governments improve traffic flow and reduce their carbon footprint - led by three students Pierre Philbert (Information Systems and Big Data major), Timothée Colas-des-francs (Embedded Systems major) and Pierre Miroite (Connected Objects, Networks and Services major) - has been selected to take part in VivaTech's Next Startupper Challenge, an interschool competition, on Saturday 19 June at 10 am.

More than 100 entrepreneurial projects in 2020 at the ECE

Renowned for its start-up and entrepreneurial pathways, ECE, a generalist & high-tech engineering school located just a stone's throw from the Eiffel Tower in Lyon, has paved the way for 235 profitable businesses.

Thanks to its innovative, project-oriented teaching methods, coaching and the cross-disciplinary Genius Campus Eiffel association, the ECE supports its student entrepreneurs by enabling them to be incubated even before the end of their studies.

Sharing experiences does the rest, as shown by the advice sessions with young entrepreneurs such as Axel Sani, founder of the branding agency Studio Elias.

There are many examples of fast-growing start-ups born at the ECE: Solinum (an association that uses digital technology to help the most disadvantaged), or Wyes (connected glasses).

ESCE startups among the 100 startups to invest in

ESCE International Business School offers its students an innovative course in entrepreneurship with an international vocation. Students can specialise in Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

Its Career Centre offers students numerous International Business Days, during which they come into contact with companies from all sectors and of all sizes.

The ESCE incubator has supported a number of successful start-ups which were created there, or by young graduates of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation specialisation, and which have been singled out in the "Challenges Ranking of 100 Start-ups to invest in" in 2020 and 2021:

La Butineuse (1st network of nutritious melliferous plants) ;

Liebr (If you need a mechanic for your two-wheeler, we've got one for you!

Among the 30,000 students at INSEEC U. schools who already have an entrepreneurial spirit is Camille Lopez, a student at the International University of Monaco (IUM), who won the Monaco Ocean Protection Challenge 2021, the Yachting Special Award and the Sustainable Award in The Mark Challenge competition organised by the International University of Monaco, thanks to her HY-Plug project (creation of a network of hydrogen and green electricity charging stations).
