 Challenge process



Application stage

(until 15 February 2019 – 11:59PM)


For the first stage, you’re asked to submit two documents:

- answers to the online questionnaire
- a brief presentation (10 slides) of your solution and its added value for ArianeGroup, Atos, SKF and major industrial groups.

You can also submit any other documents you think will help people understand your solution.

The 12 best startups will be selected for the expansion stage.




Expansion stage

(until 31 May 2019 – 11:59PM)


The 12 chosen startups will submit a more detailed document on their project (20 slides). You can build on elements of your business plan, add mock-ups and videos, or include financial aspects that will help the jury in their decision. To create this deliverable, you’ll receive support from ArianeGroup, Atos and SKF specialists to help you best address the issues that are the focus of the challenge.

You’ll then submit your detailed document directly online via your personal space.



Grand Final

(June 6th 2019)


The 12 startups shortlisted for the final will have the chance to pitch to a jury of experts from ArianeGroup, Atos and SKF as well as to a panel of their industrial customers. The winners will walk away with prize money ranging from €3,000 to €6,000. The ‘Jury’s favourite’ startup from the challenge will be given access to library resources from Techniques de l’Ingénieur on the topic of their choice, including the ability to submit questions to experts for a whole year.
