As of 1 February, close to 1,936 people have registered to enter their projects and 795 have completed their applications to be one of the 90 projects or start-ups that will be selected and funded by Publicis Groupe.

Entries are open until 29 February and anyone - Publicis Groupe employees, students, start-ups, or anybody with a good idea, can submit his or her application. The 90 projects or start-ups that will be selected will benefit from funding of between €10,000 and €500,000, one year of mentoring with a Publicis Groupe executive in marketing, communication and management, and finally an invitation to participate at Viva Technology Paris, the major digital event organized by Publicis Groupe and Groupe Les Echos from 30 June to 2 July, 2016 in Paris.
