Matching Up #2: the new call for projects from Bouygues Construction!

Matching up
Are you looking to accelerate the development of your company or your project, test your innovative business model, implement your prototype in a real-life situation or assess market needs? If so, sign up and respond to the Bouygues Construction call for projects before 11 September! For this second edition of Matching Up, the focus is on the offices of the future!

Matching Up in a few words

To discover what we have not yet come up with, Bouygues Construction partners with innovative start-ups and SMEs to promote its open innovation approach. Co-development, experimentation, business relationships and minority holdings are all possible opportunities for the companies involved in the Matching Up #2 programme.

To get involved, all you have to do is sign up for the programme and be pre-selected by the Bouygues Construction jury. After this initial application phase, the selected innovative start-ups and SMEs will work in teams with Group employees. The goal? To develop the best innovative projects. Developed in collaboration with Group "team mates", the most innovative projects will be presented (pitch and networking) to an audience of decision-makers and Bouygues Construction operations managers during the final event. A rare opportunity for young companies to make themselves known and obtain the resources they require for the launch of their projects.

A new theme: the offices of the future!

New forms of work organisation, interior design, mobility, sustainable development, new construction processes, employee well-being and productivity... 8 themes will enable you to position your project in order to meet current and future challenges.

Are you interested? Don’t hesitate to apply!

  • 11 September: Closing date for applications
  • 12 September to 2 October: Selection of innovative Start-ups and SMEs
