MATCHING UP will give your start-up the boost it needs by making you a partner of Bouygues Construction!
Start-ups that enter the Matching Up programs will enjoy opportunities for shared development and experimentation, sales relationships or venture capital investment.
During the first phase of the program, young innovators will be presented to staff members of Bouygues Construction via the platform. The start-ups picked to enter the second phase will then work closely with these staff members.
The most relevant solutions will be showcased at a "Minute Startup", Bouygues Construction's landmark open innovation event. This forum enables young entrepreneurs to present their talents to a panel of the Group's decision-makers and operational staff.
