The Orange Fab France Welcome Day took place on Friday 19 January 2018 for the nine start-ups participating in season 7 of the accelerator programme. The start-ups working for the next three months at Orange Gardens are: Ayelight, Citytaps, Festival Trotter, Global Exam, In Touch, Laburo, Pukka, Rendr and Zelift.
The programme’s main objective is for each start-up to form a commercial partnership with an Orange business unit. To do this, they’ll be following a three-month support system that includes: mentoring from external specialists and Group experts, meetings with financial investors and access to exclusive services. They will also be invited to participate in a Demo Day and various national and international events supported by Orange such as Viva Technologies (Paris, 24-26 May).
Pascal Latouche (Head of Orange Fab France & Orange Fab international network coordinator) and his team extended a warm welcome to the entrepreneurs: “These three months will take place in a climate of mutual openness and collaboration, whatever events (sometimes unpredictable) unfold,” he said. And everything will be done to ensure the start-ups see concrete results as a result of the acceleration programme.
Here’s an overview of the 9 start-ups:
