VivaTech 2019: Edenred Launches a Professional Mobility Innovation Challenge

Global innovation players will gather at Viva Technology in Paris on March 16 - 18, 2019. For the second year in a row, Edenred will set a challenge for start-ups on a strategic subject for the Group – professional mobility.

Today, professional mobility is a key challenge for innovation. More than ever, a growing number of employees and freelancers in a variety of sectors are looking for solutions that fit their specific needs.

As Edenred has placed Fleet & Mobility Solutions at the heart of its strategy, it decided to challenge start-ups at VivaTech with a pitch contest: "How can we provide employees with a fluid travel experience all along their workday (from commuting to mobility at work to business trip)?"

Edenred hopes that participants in this contest will look to the future and come up with Fleet & Mobility Solutions that can be easily reproduced and adjusted to fit many sectors.

The Jury will be composed of four of the Group's leading figures working on innovation:

  • Philippe Dufour, Executive Vice President, Alternative Investments
  • Elie du Pré de Saint Maur, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Strategy (Twitter)
  • Antoine Dumurgier, Chief Operating Officer, Fleet & Mobility Solutions (Twitter)
  • Anne-Sophie Sibout, Communication Director (Twitter)
