The challenges

In 2017, they launched their intrapreneurship program. This initiative, carried out at the highest level of the organization, aims to stimulate the entrepreneurial spirit of the teams, innovate to remain in line with market expectations and promote new working methods.

The framework

During the first edition of the event, they selected 4,000 people to participate in a call for ideas with a single objective: to give employees the opportunity to think about new levers for innovation in the luxury sector.

60 people with ideas from 40 companies and 15 countries were then selected to pitch their project at a dedicated event. This gave them the opportunity to experience working for 4 days in a collaborative manner directly inspired by startups.

3 teams were able to seduce their audiences with the relevance of their concepts on themes related to customer experience, retail and the new levers provided by digital technology.

Accompanied by mentors, the CEOs of the Group’s brands and external entrepreneurs, they have planned everything to enable teams to re- fine their projects, optimize their business models and test their projects in the real world through first-class coaching.
