Two years of valuable encounters at the Village by CA
For example, Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France convinced Open Safe, a start-up that ensures equipment safety compliance with regulations, that the Building and Civil Works is a considerable potential market and thus opened its doors to the start-up. Open Safe has since grown through the encounters it has made with different industries at the Village.
When invited to share their experiences, Village by CA residents recalled the collaborations — the valuable encounters — that united them. These twenty-one cases are clear evidence that open innovation is both a lever for digital transformation for major groups and a force for technological and business development for young, innovative companies.
The Village comprises 400 residents, 90 start-ups, 40 partner companies supporting them, 800 annual events linked to innovation, in addition to the sector and functional expertise at their disposal, and a facility open 24/7. But it is also a network of about twenty interconnected Villages in France and 25 locations abroad where start-ups can develop and establish business relationships.
