The final phase of the second edition of the Startup Challenge – Acceleration Track took place at the New York Forum (October 3 & 4, 2015). The audience made of alumni, students and representatives of our two schools took part in the vote. Each team had 7 minutes to present its project, followed up by a 15-minute session of questions & answers. They each defended their project with great fervor.
We have the pleasure to announce the results of the challenge:
- The first prize of $15,000 was awarded to Sezam Labs, project led by Clément Barbier (EMLYON), Damien Jacquet (EMLYON) and Benoît Pascal;
- The second and third prizes of $2,500 were awarded to Cy-Clope, project led by Antoine Di Tommaso (I.D.E.A. Program) and Thibault Legrand (I.D.E.A. Program); and Gathering, which became known as « Edge Motion », project led by Aymeric Agré (Centrale Lyon), Ornella Arnouts (EMLYON), François Guezengar (double degree CENTRALE LYON – EMLYON) and Guillaume Ty (Centrale Lyon).
We wish them all great success in their entrepreneurial adventure!
