Blue Ocean Awards Call For Applications
Created in 2014 by Alban Eral, with the support of HEC Paris and the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Recovery, this competition rewards companies that have followed a strategy known as the "Blue Ocean Strategy", a strategy that aims to create a new market away from the competition.
This year, several new features are on the agenda, including the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes edition, the South African edition and the Michelin international "Mobility" prize.
Previous winners include Agorize, Verachash, Pandobac, Comerso and most recently Tarmac Technologies. The winners have all experienced a meteoric rise in the wake of this competition, resulting in financing achieved in just a few months and an increase in value multiplied between 10 and 40 times.
In March 2021, four editions will be held simultaneously in Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon and Pretoria, with an awards ceremony on May 11, 2021.
The special "Mobility" prize created and awarded by Michelin is open to international candidates, regardless of their maturity. Michelin will pay particular attention to innovations related to safer, more efficient and more environmentally friendly mobility, which is at the heart of the Group's sustainable strategy.
Applications must be submitted before March 1, 2021.
