2019 French IoT contest: the 15 winning start-ups revealed
The winners of the contest organised by La Poste are joining a community of 250 start-ups. For six months, they will benefit from a tailor-made acceleration programme.
The French IoT programme launched by La Poste is enhanced every year by 15 new start-ups selected in a contest which begins in the regions and ends with a national final [see article].
A major new feature for this 5th edition is the addition of two categories - Deep Tech and Gov and Civic Tech - along with a strong commitment to attain a target of 50% of the contest winners in 2020 being female start-up founders. In this edition, 33% of the 15 start-ups selected have been founded or co-founded by a woman, as opposed to 9% nationally.
So here are the 15 winning start-ups and SMEs offering an innovative connected object or service, at the pre-marketing or marketing stage in one of the contest’s 5 themes.
