On Friday 12 April, the nine winning start-ups chosen from 150 overall candidates joined the Orange Fab France business accelerator.
These start-ups will receive both management and business support with the aim of signing an agreement with an Orange business unit or vertical line of business. The three-month support programme includes mentoring with Group experts and external specialists, along with exclusive access to financial investors and specific services. It is also a great opportunity for these new businesses to gain visibility and get invited to high-profile events such as VivaTechnology.
Pascal Latouche, who heads up Orange Fab France and coordinates the Orange Fab International Network, said about season 8: “We’ve announced yet another strong season, with very promising start-ups from a range of different fields. Our goal remains the same: to form successful commercial partnerships!”
The list of start-ups for season 8 is as follows:
Video communications anywhere, any time, on any device.
Allowing spectators to customise their sound experience.
An immersive and interactive virtual reality first aid training programme.

The Curebot platform aims to host sensitive company data and resources.
