To continue on to the next round of evaluation, each shortlisted candidate must now submit a business plan and a pitch video, which will be analyzed by Iris Capital. A global jury, whose members will be announced shortly, will then make the selection of 90 final projects.
Each of the 90 finalists selected will benefit from a capital contribution of between 10,000€ and 500,000€, one year of mentoring by a Publicis Groupe executive, and will be invited to Viva Technology Paris, the largest global tech event dedicated to fostering collaboration between large companies and startups, sponsored by Publicis Groupe and Groupe Les Echos. They will also benefit from the support of the Henner Group, an insurance expert and a partner of Publicis90.
Maxime Baffert, CEO of Proximedia and in charge of the Publicis90 initiative, comments: “The quality of the 3,555 submitted projects is very impressive. This shortlist reflects the large diversity of applications, from both a geographical and an industry standpoint, and will lead to a final selection of very promising projects and startups. What is clear is that the final selection will not be easy!”
