École polytechnique's ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship was once again in evidence at VivaTech, Europe's largest tech fair, held in Paris from June 14 to 17.

Several of the start-ups supported by the École polytechnique incubator, the Drahi-X Novation Center, were present on the stand of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, of which X is a founding member. Invisensing, Runblind, Escenci, Faure Engineering and Inspek presented themselves alongside start-ups from other IP Paris incubators on stand C42, which was also visited by the President of the Ile-de-France Region, Valérie Pécresse.

A workshop organized on June 15 enabled seven Deeptech and Tech start-up managers to present their projects, following an introduction by Eric Labaye, President of the École Polytechnique and Institut Polytechnique de Paris. Sylvain Cros, CEO of Amphitrite and researcher at the Laboratoire de météorologie dynamique (LMD*), Franz Bozsak, CEO of Sensome and former PhD student and postdoctoral fellow at École polytechnique, and Ghaya Rakaya, CEO of MIMOPT Technology, accompanied by the Drahi-X Novation Center, took part in this workshop.

The VivaTech show attracted 150,000 visitors in 2023, 50% more than in 2022, confirming its status as Europe's leading tech event. Its seventh edition was marked by a very special guest, Tesla and Space X founder Elon Musk, and by new announcements from the French President in favor of the French Tech ecosystem.

Emmanuel Macron announced the €7 billion "Tibi2" plan, designed to finance seed and mature start-ups.
