After shortlisting, 10 startups from different countries won tickets to present their projects at Web Summit. Virtual reality, mobile apps, Internet of Things… Each startup had a few minutes to pitch their ideas to win over the jury of the VINCI Airports Innovation Challenge, composed of experts in IT, extra-aeronautical activities, communications and operations. Startups had the opportunity to propose concepts that improve the global passenger experience, reduce stress or create contact between passengers and local experts in the city served.

The Challenge jury was seduced by the Toulouse-based startup Nanomade and its nano-sensor technology, which can be used to make any surface touch and pressure sensitive.
