Each season revolves around challenges related to business needs that could be solved through AI solutions. We take care to establish a balanced set of startups, covering different aspects of the AI value chain. The challenges can be crafted by Thales’ Business Lines, or directly by customers encountering operational problems.
Explore and define
For 3 months, in order to find the best opportunities, we facilitate dialogue and exchanges between startups and Thales. In this way, each startup discovers the Group's relevant activities, and the Thales’ teams reinforce their understanding and their confidence in the startups’ solutions and their ways of working.
Deliver and show
For 3 months, join developments between Thales (leveraging Digital platform asset) and startups leads to concrete demonstrations for the most promising opportunities. These valuable proofs are put in broad visibility through industry exhibitions and a Demo Day, to which hundreds of customers and partners of the Group are invited.
Together, we create long-term partnerships and continuously promote each startup through our Alumni network. We also facilitate collaborations between startups during the program and beyond. We want to create a trusted environment for other members of the ecosystem to contribute.
