The other projects that stood out at Startup Weekend 2020

The second prize is awarded to the “Défi 2 Génération” project led by Sophie Huttel and Daisy Vellaye

“Défi 2 Génération” wishes to set up intergenerational cohabitation and colocation: Seniors who have rooms available in their accommodation, and young people from Reunion, more and more numerous, looking for decent and inexpensive accommodation.

The third prize goes to the “La Fabrik Mobile” project led by Laureline Lauret and Cécile Vitry

The Fabrik’Mobile transforms farmers’ products on site to be wasted in its truck, thus providing them with additional income.

The jury’s favorite prize goes to “Each his own” by Guichard Elodie and Fruteau Mirella

“Everyone’s Part” offers to hire people with disabilities and in professional integration to bake and sell artisan cakes and pastries and offer fun culinary activities for young and old alike.

Health crisis obliges, the “online” format has been favored for this special thematic edition “Social and Solidarity Economy”. A first for the 62 participants, the 18 coaches and the Webcup association’s animation team who accompanied them throughout this weekend.

For this 2nd edition, 8 out of 15 ESS structure development projects were selected. These projects have the common ambition of creating long-lasting and non-relocatable jobs, developing greater social cohesion and providing responses to the socio-economic needs of Réunion.

It organizes initiations and training for children, young people and seniors and sets up Integration Workshops to train people far from employment as digital facilitators.
