The Bouygues group is launching a challenge based on the three themes described above.
Bouygues’ 2018 Start-up Challenge runs until 30 APRIL 2018 and is open to all start-ups developing solutions that relate to at least one of these themes.
For each one of the three themes, ten start-ups will be short-listed for a final that will take place on the Bouygues stand at the Viva Technology event in Paris between 24 and 26 MAY 2018. Two people from each start-up will be invited to Viva Technology to pitch their solution to a jury comprised of managers from the Bouygues group and its business segments. The trophy will be awarded to the winner during the event.
The winning start-up for each of the three challenges will then be given the opportunity to collaborate with a Bouygues group subsidiary on an urban development project.
The 30 finalist start-ups will be promoted by the Group’s communications department (on social networks, website, blog, etc.) and will also get to meet the managers of the innovation and open innovation structures of the Group’s entities during Viva Technology and/or via business meetings.
DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY FOR URBAN HEALTHCARE: what solutions to improve the health of the urban population?
People living in towns and cities quite naturally demand that their living conditions not be detrimental to their health and that they have access to healthcare services that will enable them to live as long as possible in good health in their own homes. How can new technologies and new business models contribute to satisfying these expectations?
DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY AND WORKSITE SAFETY: how can new technologies be used to improve the safety and well-being of those working on construction sites as well as of those living nearby?
Construction sites are potentially a source of stress, and even accidents, for those working on them and for those living around them. Can new technologies improve conditions by providing solutions that enhance ease of use, communication and signage as well as reduce noise and dust pollution? ?
NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY: what solutions to promote the circular economy?
The increasing scarcity of natural resources and worrying increase in waste means that we have to reduce our consumption of raw materials, re-use things and recycle our rubbish. What solutions can current technologies provide?
