How did you get the idea :

All our devices are now connected. Since the appearance of thermomix and now Cookeo, cooking has never been easier. However, we are sometimes lacking in culinary ideas despite a fridge still full.

” What are we eating ? ” That is the question !

Your products and services :

The connected fridge is able to record every ingredient that is put in and removed. It takes into account the quantity, quality and flash the unlimited date of consumption. A screen is incorporated in the fridge to allow exchanges. A scale can also be added to the product and placed next to it, at the worktop level. Depending on this, it offers the possible dishes to achieve that will appear on the screen but also on your tablet or phone.

It only remains to get to the stove.

No more food waste, no more idea, no more routine!

Your success factors :

I think it will be a product that will appeal to families.

Your differentiating and disruptive factors in relation to the existing one :

My product is more than a fridge, it is a 1.1 version. My main partners will be the builders of refrigerators, that goes without saying.

Your business model (How do you make money?) :

Launch price: 1000-5000 € according to the quality of the fridge (American, classic, mini bar)

The idea :

Create a platform for connecting travelers and inhabitants of a city to allow travelers to invite themselves to the life of an inhabitant for a whole day and discover their daily lives and to share with them resident to make an associative donation in exchange for the time spent with the traveler. This would offer a completely different approach to tour guides and local guides by promoting human exchange and discovery of the other.

Operation :

The inhabitant fills his profile on the platform by indicating in a short description his personality, what he likes and dislikes, his weekly activities, his job … .etc. The traveler goes to the page of the city where he will soon stay and selects a resident he would like to discover in his daily life and spend a day with him.

If the inhabitant, after exchanges of conversation between them, agrees to receive it, the traveler pays on line the expenses of reservation and receives the address of the inhabitant. Part of the booking fee is donated to an association that the resident has previously wanted to sponsor.

Why this idea might work (why this startup succeeds) :

The overly conventional pattern of tourist guides and local guides abounds in the tourism market and travelers are finding it increasingly difficult to find the offer that suits them.

With this platform, they have a real understanding of what a local life is in the city they visit. They have the opportunity to interfere in the life of an inhabitant and see the reality of his daily life. It is also an opportunity to really exchange on different aspects of the daily life of the traveler and the inhabitant, to exchange culturally and to promote a real human exchange (they can go to the market together, cook together, receive the friends of the inhabitant, go to the theater ….).

From this, can even be born a new friendship. The associative aspect is also to take into account to the extent that the inhabitant gives his time to sponsor an association and the traveler lives a unique experience in the discovery of the daily life of the inhabitant. It is an  alternative travel experience, focused on discovering the other and his world. For the associations, this would allow a new source of funding, with the recruitment of new donors with very low costs of conquest and a new means of relationship with the donors.

Originality :

This concept does not yet exist in the tourism market and could really change the way people travel by combining exchanges, discovery of the other and associative gift. Human and relational exchange is at the center of this concept and everyone benefits. It also helps to keep tourists from an ultra-commercial system .

The platform makes it possible to meet new people while discovering the city.

How did you get the idea :

The definition of a road trip is wide, it is a trip a bit special since it is done by car, bike or hitchhiking. It can be organized or improvised but it is very often fixed-term. The idea has therefore come from the fact that organizing a road trip is far from being an easy task: one must have a minimum of knowledge about the destinations envisaged. In order not to miss anything during his road trip, we get lost very quickly.

Your products and services :

Roadable is an application  present on two interfaces: an application moving to ensure maximum freedom, as well as a web application in order to optimize comfort. In four words, this is a planner of road trip. No more long hours to browse the various guides travel or advice in line roadable you offers of programs customized including hikes and recommended visits, the inevitable site, itineraries, list of accommodation … In order to carry out your road trip in all tranquility. Fill in your preferences (means of transport, style of accommodation, more or less sports, …) and your points and dates of departure and arrival. The application does the rest, all on design and intuitive interfaces.

Your success factors :

We are 4 students in fifth year of engineering school. Soon graduated, we developed our application from a common idea. Thanks to our varied technical profiles, we complement each other and have all the resources necessary for the good performance of our project. Creative, ambitious and united, we are ultra motivated to grow our baby application.


Your differentiating and disruptive factors in relation to the existing one :

Mobile or web applications that reference all activities on a given route, there are heaps. But these apps require you that you already know the route you want to follow. You need to enter a starting point A and a point B of arrival, these apps find you the shortest wayand activities on the road. For example, if you want to make a trip Paris – Biarritz, the existing will offer you to go through Orleans, Tours, Niort and Bordeaux. But is the shortest way the ideal path? Roadable will calculate, according to the time you have the optimal path so that you can make the most of it. Depending on your preferences, Roadable will generate a program with steps; day after day, hours after hours, making you make a detour to Nantes for example, then making you visit all the Atlantic coast and its inevitable. The shortest route is not always your ideal route.

Your business model (How do you make money?) :

Our remuneration will be based on the partnership with the different actors of tourism. Indeed, Roadable encourages a traveler to discover a place on which he may not have intended to go in the first place, to carry out activities that he would surely not have done without the suggestion of a program. roadable. The profitability of the application will be based on a percentage taken when booking an activity, hotel, or other.

Your competitors :

Our application is innovative in that, to this day, no application generates a suggestion of a route with potential steps and activities from the user’s profile. This is why there are no competitors as such. However, all applications for planning a road trip can be like competitors, applications such as: Field trip (by Google, locates activities nearby) or Roadtrippers (provides you the most short between 2 points and activities near this route).
