Edenred is inviting applications for a Pitch Contest in providing employees with a fluid travel experience all along their workday at Vivatech in France 2019.

From May 16 to May 18 2019, Viva Technology will bring together 10,000 startups with top worldwide investors, companies & tech leaders.

The contest

Mobility is a boiling space where revolutionary projects allow new solutions for citizens (ride-hailing service, carpooling, car sharing, Mobility-as-a Service etc.) and goods (alternative delivery methods like the drone and cargo bicycles for example). Edenred, being a key player in professional mobility, wishes to leverage those new capabilities to propose efficient and disruptive solutions for the working world.

Employees/freelancers start to use those new solutions in their own way, but it is not always compatible with the companies internal processes, limiting their deployment in B2B environment.
