A successful first edition
On June 20th, the hall of the Marcel Michelin stadium welcomed 20 startups of Le Bivouac, the first startup accelerator in Clermont-Ferrand. The DemoCamp, as it’s called, was an opportunity for the participating startups to pitch their innovations to a gathering of 500 people. The event offered a day of networking and social media attention for the startups.
The afternoon featured 4 conferences given by international and regional speakers: The user experience, The monetization of data, Team cohesion, and Accepting failure.
The purpose of The DemoCamp was to show the potential of the start-ups of the Bivouac to the public, the investors, the journalists, and the elected representatives. But also, to attract students willing to join start-ups and young entrepreneurs in search of a support, hence the presence of local business incubators as CoCoshaker.
Chaired by Olivier Bianchi (Mayor of Clermont-Ferrand) and managed by Benoit Membré, the accelerator from Auvergne celebrate with this event its first year of counselling and support of start-ups.
An experience to be repeated !
