The first edition of Viva Technology wrapped up with an exciting third day, during which the public had a chance to discover the startups and innovations showcased at the LVMH Luxury Lab.
Visitors to Viva Technology were welcomed to the LVMH Luxury Lab with breakfast compliments of La Grande Epicerie de Paris before hearing pitches from startups who recounted their creative backstory and how their innovations have been developed.
The morning also provided an opportunity for young talents to meet with the LVMH Talent Management team to submit résumés and discover job opportunities with the Group.
The day continued with a presentation of Sea Bubble, an innovation sponsored by LVMH. Among those listening was French Economy, Industry and Digital affairs Minister Emmanuel Macron, who visited Viva Technology. The Sea Bubble is a zero-emission vehicle that travels above water thanks to four “marine wings” and two small engines. With capacity for four people, the Sea Bubble reduces road congestion by traveling on waterways without polluting them.
LVMH also invited NGOs to meet with social solidarity startups at the Luxury Lab, including Mr & Mrs Cork, which makes ethical accessories from cork, and Eqosphère, a specialist in waste reduction and recycling.
LVMH Houses had a chance to show their latest innovations to the public as well. TAG Heuer Connected, the first luxury smartwatch, Krug iD and the Sephora Beauty Board all drew enthusiastic interest.
An opportunity to remind that yesterday ended with a talk by Jean-Baptiste Voisin, Chief Strategy Officer of LVMH and member of the Executive Committee, who presented the Group and answered questions from visitors.
