The winning start-ups, chosen from among 150 applications, join the Orange Fab France business accelerator from April 12, 2019.
For a minimum of twelve weeks, start-ups will be monitored both in terms of management and business, in order to reach a contract with a Business Unit or with a business management department at Orange. To do this, start-ups will have access to the start-up space on the Orange Gardens site (the Group's Innovation eco-campus located in Châtillon).
The winning companies will benefit from the support of Orange Fab France, expertise with dedicated mentors and the network of 16 Orange Fabs distributed around the world. The nine start-ups that are joining the three-month acceleration program are: Apizee, Augmented Acoustics, d'U Single Geste, DocnYou, CollaborativeSpirits, MySIM, Ogo Security, Res publica and Zeetta Networks.
Regarding this season 8, Pascal Latouche, Director of Orange Fab France and Coordinator of the International Network of Orange Fabs, said: “It's still a great season ahead with very promising start-ups from fields very varied. Our objective remains the same: to conclude commercial partnerships! "
