Our mission was to guide the CIC through the process of conception and creation of the Place de l’innovation. It is a connected agency dedicated to counsel young entrepreneurs and startupers.
CIC Place de l’innovation
CIC Place de l’innovation is a meeting place for the CIC, its clients and new entrepreneurs. This agency was imagined to invent a new approach to business relationships between banks and startups. It is a connected workspace where counselors come on a daily basis and where startupers can greet their own clients for a meeting.
II. USER EXPERIENCE
A several steps pathway
The user experience is built in 4 pillars:
- Discovery: Access to the information thanks to an interactive window display and through a first contact point.
- Immersion: an informative reception desk and connected booth made for informal exchanges.
- Creation: A working desk fitted out for long distance meetings and equipped with a specific tool designed to put CIC clients through.
- Achievement: A discrete area built to sign contracts confidentially.
III. TECHNOLOGICAL APPROACH
Custom-made digital workshops
The need of creating a unique bond with startupers brought us to build tools fitted to banking. Those tools had to be useful to reinforce this dynamic of new relationship. Data Connect Application is a great example as it allows you to put CIC clients and startupers through thanks to contact forms sending. Thus, they can communicate easily on their respective ideas.
IV. A PHYSICAL APPROACH
A connected architecture
We worked in partnership with an interior architect, Éditions Limitées by Jorge Grasso. We designed a place where technologie is not a constraint to daily work but is an integral part of the environment. The workshops had been imagined to be more intuitive in their way of use so that they can live in an autonomous way (switch between sources, screens programmation, remote access updates…).
Nicolas, Simon et Michel
First, Michel and Simon guided the CIC with the organization of several workshops to define the positioning and the functionalities of the place. Then, Nicolas worked on the development of workshops with different supports (mobile application, desktop application, website …).
