In January 2017, we initiated the season 1 of the Intrapreneurs program in a 3 steps process, 1) Application, 2) Qualification, and 3) Incubation, as described in this previous post.
In January 2018, we handled the season 2 of the Intrapreneurs program with a very encouraging success reflecting an increasing awareness of the program:
A 100% increase in the applications received (90 files);
250 attendees watching the intrapreneurs pitchs, at the jury session that finalizes the Qualification phase (2,5 more than in 2017);
A more diverse Qualification class of 13 projects including 30% women, and an internationalisation with 2 new countries Poland and Slovakia, in addition to France; also the Qualification graduates chose the name of a woman: Gabrielle Chanel!
Sponsorship works! 100% of the projects selected for Qualification had found a business unit to support their project;
3 projects were selected by the jury to go for Incubation phase, and the Polish project was awarded with an international prize; the 3 projects reflect a rich diversity:

A mobile app that lets African consumers make appointment to get what they have ordered online, even if they don't have an accurate physical address to share, suggested by an engineer working on the Orange Money service.
