Through 4 exciting stages, it first encourages a hothouse of innovation at the Hackathon weekend, then channels the most promising projects through a Digital Bootcamp, followed by Demo day- live in Paris, with BNP Paribas top management – culminating in the selection of a few winners that will be supported during the implementation of their solutions.
