Next Innov startup prize: Banque Populaire launches the 5th edition

Tuesday, 1 march 2022

From March 1st to April 1st, startups developing solutions to help companies perform more efficiently can submit their applications to be one of the winners of the Next Innov Prize 2022.

For the 5th year in succession, Banque Populaire, working through its Next Innov network dedicated to innovative companies, has teamed up with Maddyness, the leading digital media dedicated to the world of startups, in the organization of the Next Innov Prize. This competition was created to reward French BtoB startups working on ways to help companies boost their performance in areas related to legal affairs, HR, marketing, productivity, and financial or administrative management.
After the end of the application submission period running from March 1st to April 1st, 10 startups will be selected to pitch their respective solutions on May 18 to a panel of highly respected experts, representing the innovation ecosystem that enables the Next Innov by Banque Populaire network to support innovative growth companies. The suspense will come to an end on July 5th with the announcement of the different prizewinners. 
As every year, the three winning startups will receive their monetary prizes and enjoy the support of partners (Seventure Partners, Bpifrance, and Pramex – a Groupe BPCE company specializing in international development) along with a media plan on Maddyness. In addition to the traditional ‘Internationalization’ and ‘Public Vote’ categories, an ‘Impact’ prize has been added since last year’s competition to reward an innovative, eco-responsible project with the organization of specialized support in this area.
