The third edition of the Challenge First Step is hitting cruising speed, with ten start-up projects submitted (seven from Leti, two from Liten, and one from List; nine project leaders are permanent employees of the CEA Technology Research Division, the tenth is on a post-doc contract).
Shortlisted candidates, to be announced on June 19, will go on to participate in a week-long immersion program in early July devoted to teambuilding and business design. In the fall, they will receive one-to-one coaching.
Projects shortlisted for the Challenge First Step receive support services and financing designed to give out-of-the-box ideas an opportunity to develop into viable businesses by helping project leaders better prepare their start-up plans .
