IMT-BS at Vivatech 2019

VivaTech Paris, the unmissable exhibition in the world of start-ups, entrepreneurship and innovation, took place at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles on May 16-18, 2019.

IMT was there to introduce 42 selected start-ups and all those from its network of 11 business incubators across its schools. The start-ups, involved in all sectors impacted by digital technology (Healthcare, Smart Mobility, Cybersecurity, Greentech, Smart Industry, Data&IA for Marketing and Services) took part in the 3-day exhibition (stand C41), where pitches, demonstrations, meetings and discussions were all on the agenda!

Among the 42 start-ups, 8 came from IMT Starter, Institut Mines-Télécom Business School’s incubator: AiiNTENSE, Bisly, Green Tropism, myLabel, Packet AI, Spectral, Watiz, as well as Yelda, one of whose founders is none other than a school alumnus!

For the start-ups, taking part in VivaTech was the first step towards the Bercy IMT 2019 Innovation Prize. Indeed, from the 42 candidates, the jury panel has selected 10 start-ups that will have the opportunity to pitch before a jury of experts at the French Ministry of the Economy as well as showcase their work, alongside IMT, at CES in Las Vegas from January 7-10, 2020. The Bercy IMT 2019 Innovation Prize will then be awarded to the winner(s).
