LISAA students sweep the board at the Ecole Polytechnique Startup Weekend
This weekend, four LISAA students were awarded the first, second and third prizes by the jury for their startup propositions at the Ecole Polytechnique’s Startup Weekend, whose theme this year was Health Tech.
1ST JURY PRIZE
Camille Bizeul and Sixtine Mailley, fourth year students on the Interior Architecture and Design course at LISAA Paris, received the first prize awarded by the jury during this edition dedicated to Health Tech, for their project, “Hope Hope Hope”. Aimed at helping women to have children, this project offers a connected ovulation assistant that is fun and easy to use.
In less than 54 hours, the two students had the time to propose a 3-D modelling of their project, as well as a user-scenario, which captured the public’s attention.
2ND JURY PRIZE
Ghrany Isel, Anne-Cécile Graine and Charlène Martin, students on the fourth year of the Interior Architecture and Design course and third year at the Graphic Design School at LISAA Paris respectively, received the second prize awarded by the jury for their project Nobobo, an automatic injection assistant for a "painless injection that is unique and quick". In record time, they designed the programme and then built a simulation robot and a 3-D modelling of the tool.
3RD JURY PRIZE
The third prize was awarded to the team behind “Visit”, which included two students from the Graphic Design department at LISAA: Loïc Bouchet – in the third year of the Graphic Design course – and Leïla Roumili – in the first year of the Digital Art Direction master’s course. Visit is a platform that supports and encourages visits to hospital and assisted living accommodation patients via a digitally managed communication system.
