JEC Group is proposing a new focus on entrepreneurship, the development of which is essential for the future of French and international industry.

Success stories for startups at JEC World 2017

At the JEC World trade show, in mid-March 2017, the Startup Booster programme will reward three of the companies (startup, small or medium-sized business, or spinoff) that it identifies, supports and promotes worldwide for their innovative composite technologies.

Startup Booster provides development support, encourages entrepreneurial initiative and offers startups a vast showcase, with two objectives:

  • to give startups direct contact with customers, investors and industrial partners worldwide;
  • to give the manufacturers at the JEC World trade show an opportunity to meet with very small businesses and to deal with new generations of entrepreneurs.

These international exchanges are in keeping with JEC Group’s commitment to contribute to sustainable development through its networking activities. The startups will be selected based on the significant advances they bring to the environment, cost reduction, quality, or health through their processes and/or products.

During the three days of the trade show, the award winners will benefit from more than just a strong gathering of leaders in the composites market. They will also reap the benefits of the presence of international media; individual coaching; advice from the jury; a programme of tailored B2B meetings; and the presentation of their projects in the Startups Village. €10 000 will be shared between the 3 winners. They will also receive awards worth some €15,000 in the form of the added value of visibility through articles, a stand, and participation in the conferences at the 2018 JEC World.
