IMT: a local, national and international economic development accelerator

IMT is an environment that enables the cross-pollination and fertilization of tech companies in industry through a modular service offering based on 3 key components:

– technological support services backed by schools, laboratories, research professors and innovation platforms driving research in France

– access to key skills for technological and business development: students, researchers, users

– market access through its network of 9,500 partner companies, SMEs/midcaps and key accounts


For Patrick Duvaut, Director of Innovation at IMT, “the IMT system dedicated to supporting entrepreneurship is pioneering in terms of its territorial network. But what also makes us stand out is our economic development remit within a context of public interest. As a result, our success indicators focus not only on the amount of fundraising, but also on job creation and the development of the industrial fabric across the regions. Another asset, and not the least, is our ability to bring our best start-ups to CES in Las Vegas, which ensures maximum visibility and access to international markets.”


From VivaTech to CES in Las Vegas

Incubation at IMT also involves a threefold acceleration with the United States in mind. The start-ups selected by IMT to go to Vivatech are competing for the Bercy-IMT Innovation Prize launched in 2018. The judges will select 20 start-ups from among the candidates and these will pitch before a jury of experts at the Ministry of Economy in fall 2019. The 10 winning start-ups will then exhibit with IMT at CES in Las Vegas, from January 7-10, 2020. During CES the Bercy-IMT Innovation Prize will be awarded to the winner(s), along with €50,000, during the Convergence event.

2) Scan of the work environment, thanks to a 3d camera, this leads to a 3d mock-up of the operations environment
3) Visual programming, the painter easily interacts with his finger on a touch screen, so as to indicate the surfaces to be operated
4) Operations achieved by the machine, meanwhile the painter achieves the finer works or preparatory steps
