The final phase of the third edition of the 2016 Startup Challenge took place in San Francisco, on Friday, October 14. The three teams pitched their projects at a reception organized at the Consular Residence of the General Consul of France in San Francisco, Mr. Emmanuel Le Brun-Damiens.
The audience was made of alumni, students and representatives of both schools. Each team had 3 minutes to present its project, followed up by a 10-minute session of questions & answers. They each defended their project with great fervor.
Following the votes of Allyage’s donors, we have the pleasure to announce the results of the challenge:
The first prize of $15,000 was awarded to CleanCup, project led by Eléonore Blondeau (emlyon15) & Lionel Amieux;
The second and third prizes of $2,500 were awarded Teedji, project led by Gaëtan Piolot (Centrale Lyon), Lucas Quinonero (Centrale Lyon) and François Rostker (ISTY); and Nanovare, project led by Tobias Böcker (emlyon14), Fanny Chesa (Arts et Métiers ParisTech 16), Mohamed Tahas (Centrale Lyon PhD17) and Daniel Thomas (Centrale Lyon 14).
