back Moov'with Manutan 2023 laureates

Manutan continues its commitment to young entrepreuneurs with the launch of the call for applications for the 4th edition of the Moov'with Manutan program

22 April 2024

Building on its success, Manutan, one of Europe's leading BtoB e-commerce companies, is renewing for the fourth consecutive year the call for applications for its BtoB start-up support program "Moov'with Manutan", in partnership with Moovjee (Movement for young and student entrepreneurs).

Moov'with Manutan, a BtoB innovation program

The program is open to young entrepreneurs aged 18 to 30, members of Moovjee, who wish to accelerate their development in France and/or Europe and hold at least 20% of their start-up's shares.

Start-ups must propose innovative projects with positive impact and meeting the expectations of enterprises and local communities (development of dedicated services or innovative class C/indirect products). They have until June the 30th to apply, after which a pre-selection committee will select 10 candidates to present their projects in September before a jury composed of Xavier Guichard, the President of the Group, and Manutan employees, who will select the 3 winning start-ups.

They will then join the program alongside several sponsors dedicated to supporting them. This will give them the opportunity to develop their offerings (product and/or service) with the support of sector experts, allowing them to have a deeper understanding of market expectations. Additionally, they will benefit from accommodation at Manutan's European campus located in Gonesse, where they will have the opportunity to develop strategic partnerships. As part of the program, Manutan also commits to promoting the winners within its ecosystem (clients, partners, etc.) to contribute to their growth and visibility in the BtoB market.

A springboard for committed start-ups

In 2023, the three winning gems placed CSR at the heart of their Business Model:

  • JeuNoh: An educational game promoting children's autonomy, including those with specific needs.
  • Holis: A platform for life cycle analysis (LCA) and collaborative eco-design to assess and improve the socio-environmental performance of products.
  • SWOOP Energy: An ecological and silent mobile power supply solution for building professionals.

Xavier Laurent, Program Director of the Manutan Group and sponsor of the program, states, "Supporting young entrepreneurs who contribute to building the future is naturally aligned with our mission ‘Enterprising for a better World'. Indeed, we constantly explore new opportunities, and our goal is to put technology and innovation at the service of everyone. We are eager to discover the projects of the candidates in this new edition of Moov'with Manutan, and we are convinced that we will find innovative and bold proposals to address the numerous challenges of our time."
