Innovation in Action: Recap of the Hackathon House of Startups x Foyer

R&D and Innovation

On 11 and 12 December, the House of Startups and Foyer skilfully orchestrated the 2nd joint Hackathon, an innovation and co-creation concept, tried and tested over several years of partnership.  This year's event, dedicated to in-house innovation, brought together no fewer than 30 participants and their 20 coaches, all engaged in a fascinating exploration of the theme of generative artificial intelligence, a topical issue of major importance for business development.

Each hackathon is an opportunity to design new solutions to meet emerging needs. The choice of generative AI for this innovation challenge aligns with Foyer's forward-looking strategic vision, at the cutting edge of technological advances.

The House of Startups, a place of inspiration to stimulate the creation of projects, welcomed the participants during these two fruitful days. Throughout their journey of collective intelligence, the Foyer employees drew on the expertise and methodology of the House of Startups teams and the coaches on hand.

The implementation of ideas was strengthened by access to open-source generative AI solutions in the Foyer Data Studio. 

This joyful collaboration, documented in a video report, reflects the commitment of an entire innovation ecosystem in Luxembourg to bringing about revolutionary solutions with high-added value for businesses.

The pitches took place on Foyer's premises, and the winning teams will be supporting their projects throughout 2024.

This 2nd joint edition was a real success, highlighting the unifying role of the House of Startups, bringing together Foyer partners and members of the ecosystem around an innovative drive.
