London | Feedback from the start-up pitches : 5 + 5
24 November: Startup pitches with EDHEC, HEC, ESCP, ESSEC, emlyon business school, Imperial and more!
A great opportunity for idea to series A stage startups to pitch a crowd of entrepreneurs, investors and other supportive alumni from Business and Engineering Schools from the UK and France.
2 emlyon startups were present:
- Vincent Béjot (emlyon14) & Thibault Patte (emlyon13), co-founders of 30&40, a line of premium spirits from Normandie.
French spirit brand Trente & Quarante, founded by two emlyon alumni, started the distribution in the UK market. Their products are now available through UK's top spirits importer Speciality Drinks. A new milestone for this company specialised in Normand craft spirits and currently raising funds.
- Prune Esquerré-Blosseville (emlyon07), who is working for Stop Waste, a startup specialized in IA and predictive sales in retail.
Stop Waste is a promising cutting edge artificial intelligence solution for supply chain, designed to help distributors manage their procurement and margin according to predictive sales. After winning the prize of the best algorithm 2 months ago at a Carrefour challenge, the team is now going to present the project to Carrefour on Monday, November 28 in front of a jury compound of comex members, startup and incubator in Paris! Let's support them!
