Innovation workshop in Paris for 2 winners of the smartcity challenge
Tuesday June 2nd, the Imagine with Orange team welcomed 2 winners of the Smartcity campaign for an innovation workshop about their projects. These 2 winners were Maria, developing the Romanian app PengIn, and Adina, in charge of FindThat , another Romanian project.
After a whole morning with a smartcity expert, entrepreneurs, and the French and Polish Imagine team, progress has been made! The market environment, the concept and innovation design, the value proposition and business model, and many more aspects of both apps were reviewed. “The discussion at the workshop has been helpful and a privilege for me. The points hit were specific and clear in such a way that I now have the startup's clear next steps” said Maria.
The team then visited the Orange’s innovation showroom, where they had the opportunity to discover next products generation by Orange Innovation Center. The tour ended with a visit at NUMA, a hive hub for Parisian start-ups & a coworking space in Paris city center.
The Innovation workshop is also a chance to discover Paris and the French culture during a few days. As Maria said (and we are grateful for these kind words!) : “Paris is the most beautiful city I've ever been to, it has art in every gust of wind blown, word spoken, dish served and building risen. “
