The 2016 edition of the Challenge First Step is the best to date, with ten projects selected in June. The Challenge was set up to identify startup ideas at CEA Tech labs and give the project leaders support taking the crucial first steps from lab to business. This year, Challenge First Step will support projects from Leti and Liten as well as from the CEA Tech regional platforms launched in 2013.
The projects selected will receive ten days of training through October and will also be given personalized sessions with a coach. On November 23 they will go before a panel of judges to vie for financing and approval to use 20% of their work time for their projects. Challenge First Step has resulted in 12 startups, including ISKN, Sublimed, Bag-Era, and Morphosense, since its inception.
