The challenges are aimed at startups and SMEs: a duo is formed between a winner and the company sponsoring each challenge. For 5 months, each duo benefits from methodological support from thecamp, in particular during 3 sprints that are led by collective intelligence and innovation professionals. At the end of the 5 months, each duo presents the results of the challenge. The projects can then continue to be developed.
