New in 2019: Tomorrow's start-uppers – l’X students in action
On Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17, some of the student associations from École Polytechnique will answer the invitation to innovation and come host at the stand. All year long, they help to enliven the l’X student community by organizing forums, conferences, hackathons, and start-up weekends. VivaTechnology is a chance for them to reinforce their contacts while presenting their events and associations they organize to corporate visitors.
 
Le Cabinet Start-Up: this is a student association working to promote entrepreneurship within the École Polytechnique community as well as throughout the entire Saclay Plateau (ecosystem where École Polytechnique is located) through the organization of start-up weekends and forums, bringing together various start-ups and students, or even hackathons.
 
AI Society: AI Society is a student association that brings together people interested in artificial intelligence by organizing conferences, workshops and mini-training sessions. It supplements students' education through the organization of theoretical courses on the subject and seeks to participate in various competitive events held in the field worldwide.
 
XProjets: École Polytechnique's Junior Entreprise, XProjets, provides services geared towards specific assignments, capitalizing on the multidisciplinary skills of the school's 2,000 students.
 
The Next Startupper Challenge // Fight for Your School.
Néolithe, a project promoted by two l’X students with a strong entrepreneurial ambition and positive environmental impact, will represent the school during a pitch fight held on Saturday, May 18, amongst 12 total projects promoted by students from 12 different institutions. This represents a great visibility opportunity for these two entrepreneurs, as they will compete in front of an audience made up of high-level decision makers. The winners of the pitch fight will gain the support of a major innovation group as well as an edge up for the 2020 edition of VivaTechnology.
Néolithe proposes to reduce French CO2 emissions via its special process, which transforms non-recyclable household waste into materials for use in the construction industry.
