A market, a team, an accelerator... BIM

It didn?t took long for Jean-Baptiste Théard and Cyrille Vincey to convince our jury last august.

Their startup idea was not only answering a real problem, with a real market, but the maturity of the team also contributed in sealing the deal.

This is the qunb's secret to kick ass!

 

Datas, datas, datas!

And we were right: since their entry to Le Camping, data-journalism, data-visualization, big data, and other ?data? terms have entered the current buzzword glossary.

Particularly noteworthy is the recent announcement of Dataconnexions, a community of Open Data projects spearheaded by the french government?s Etalab, and in which Silicon Sentier is a key partner.

Given this favorable environment, it was no big surprise that they seduced investors on Demo Day...

A question of timing?

It?s thanks to Le Camping that they could get in touch with the ecosystem... and thanks to their talent that they?re carving out their own place.

The match between accelerator and startup will be successful if the chosen campers are mature enough to take what works best for them ; to seize the opportunities ; to react in a savvy way to the events ; to not expect too much of the outside environment ; to harness the force within them and be self-sufficient, even if we?re here to help out.

One month ahead of opening the submissions period for our next season, these are important things to keep in mind if you plan to be a future camper.
