We'll offer startups (selected on the basis of the needs of their mid- to large-sized companies sponsors: lc.cx/KZQ) an intensive 6-month acceleration opportunity. The teams will be based in the heart of Paris, emulation among entrepreneurs is one of the strengths of such a program. We offer coaching (a CTO and an Entrepreneur in Residence, sessions w/ experts and mentors, ...). That's why we want selected teams to be there at least 3 days / week (Tuesday through Thursday). Moreover, our godfathers are from all over France (and even in Berlin), Paris remains a focal point for #IRL exchanges !

Here’s a run of 6 months:

-Orienteering: Laying the groundwork for the experience (1 month- Speed-dating with BNP Paribas experts who can contribute to the project & Individual needs-analysis workshops for each startup and its sponsor)

-Tandem racing: Cooperation and development of the PoC (3 months- Development of the PoC with your sponsor )

-Pit stop: Completion of the project and analysis of the experience (2 months- Delivery of the PoC and assessment & Demo Day)

WE OFFER YOU A 6-MONTH ACCELERATOR PROGRAM and we take ZERO EQUITY.


WHY NOT BE PART OF THE ADVENTURE?
