Activities

Workshop and knowledge-sharing

Innovation Dating

Club members define a cross-sector thematic of common interest for each event and the LOIC scouts for startups close enough to the local ecosystem.

Startups pitch in front of the audience, then club members exchange directly with the startups and explore business opportunities.

Innovation call

Tailor-made meetups, several times a year between a company and startups selected based on the company's specifications. These meetings are confidential and organised upon each member's will.
