In May, three students from Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school won the region’s Campus Création entrepreneurship award for their innovation: Oria, a ring that creates sound effects to accompany the notes played on a digital musical instrument. Since September, they have gone from idea to startup.
For their senior year at Phelma, students will benefit from a national student-entrepreneur program that allows them to take classes while working full time on their project for six months. Three other engineering students, also in their senior year, will be assigned to the project to help.
The winning trio also has plans to enter additional competitions to have their technology vetted by other experts and raise funds to launch their business. The Campus Création award came with funding of €3,500.
