On June 19, the Corsican incubator Inizià and ENGIE launched a call for applications in order to select innovative projects that will have the opportunity to pitch during the "My Innovation is ..."  contest. The winner will benefit from an ENGIE support.Startups from a broad range of activity sectors can apply: renewable energies, transport and sustainable mobility, territories, connected buildings and objects, water and biodiversity or deeptech ...

My Innovation is ...

The "My Innovation is ..." event has been organized every year since 2016 by the Satt network (Technology Transfer Acceleration Companies), which includes the University of Corsica. The 2019 edition will take place in Bastia on November 14 and will include a new "startups" category, whose pre-selection was entrusted to Inizià. "My Innovation..." is a pitch contest in which each participant has 3 minutes to convince the jury of the relevance of its solution.

Mentoring to develop

At the end of the competition, the winner will benefit from the mentoring of the ENGIE Group. As Ludovic Parisot (Director for the South Region) explains, "startups generally succeed in raising funds quite easily. What they often lack is the engineering, the tutoring of experts capable of helping them to ensure the maturation of their project. ENGIE is looking for very pragmatic innovations and new talents in new technologies."

Applications must be submitted on the website
