Beelys: Launch of the 12th Young Accelerated Companies Contest

On The January 10, 2019

Beelys launched its 2019 Accelerated Young Companies (JEA) contest on January 10 at the Incity Tower. What is the program about? Supporting startups in their acceleration phase.

JEA 2019 is on! Last night at the Incity Tower in Lyon, Beelys officially launched its Accelerated Young Companies (JEA) program to help companies prepare for acceleration, in partnership with Caisse d’Épargne Rhône-Alpes. This inspiring event kicked off Beelys’ accelerator program with pitches from selected startuppers before a jury of mentors and partners.

The JEA provides five months of structuring and operational support to startups preparing for the acceleration phase, covering the following issues:

  • “Boost your sales”;
  • “Master HR and management”;
  • “An airtight legal status”;
  • “Optimize funding”.

The evening closed with words from 2019 program sponsor and founder of Roamler, Baptiste Privé:

Cash is king – reach the stratosphere or plummet depending on how much money your company has! Financial management is vital in the early stages, and it is a good way to keep moving forward and growing! This needs to be your daily preoccupation. You must monitor it at all times and know where you're at! Some very promising startups have failed due to not paying close enough attention to this area!

Startups drew inspiration from Simon Adjedj’s experience. The founder of bookmymusic.fr and winner of the 2018 JEA Grand Prize emphasized the importance of the community to discuss, share, challenge yourself – this is a near-infinite resource where you can find skills and expertise.

SAVE THE DATE FOR THE FINALE ON MAY 23, 2019 AT LA SUCRIERE DURING THE HUBLO FESTIVAL!
