For the 4th year in succession, the Next Innov Prize pays tribute to French BtoB startups for their innovative solutions geared to enhancing business performance.
First launched in 2018 by Banque Populaire in association with the French startup magazine Maddyness, the Next Innov Prize sets out to enhance the visibility of startup companies and provide sustainable support for their ongoing development. Above and beyond the purely financial aspects of these awards (the winner of the 1st prize receives 10,000 euros), the Next Innov Prize offers award-winners the guarantee of enjoying the support of the ecosystem set up by Banque Populaire and its partners, all benchmark players in innovation. This year, the Next Innov selection panel was comprised of Seventure, Pramex International, BpiFrance Innovation, Ticket for Change, Time for the planet, and RaiseLab.
Once again, the participants in the competition presented a number of innovative, high-quality projects:
1st prize: Teamstarter, a platform providing companies with an internal participatory financing tool,
2nd prize: Galam Robotics, a company offering a modular automated storage solution,
3rd prize: Soan, which offers an innovative solution in the form of a BtoB payment platform designed to simplify and speed up customer and supplier payments.
Soan is a triple award-winner considering that it also won the Internationalization and Public Vote citations. Finally, AUM Biosync, a company developing management solutions, won the Impact award, a new feature of this year's competition designed to pay tribute to the most socially responsible initiative.
