At the end of five days of intense competition, the Mondial Paris Motor Show (formerly Mondial de l'auto) reveals that WeProov has won its competition dedicated to automotive innovation and the future of mobility. This international competition took place within the framework of Mondial.Tech, in collaboration with Startup Sesame, Deloitte, Fidal and many partners of the ecosystem. The French startup won the Grand Prix in all categories among 478 candidates from 53 countries.
WeProov offers a digital solution, for automotive professionals, to make the process of inventory of fixtures in rental, transport, fleet management and insurance more reliable and faster.
Based on a blockchain technology for generating certified visual evidence from a smartphone, the application allows companies to optimize their operations and improve customer relations by establishing total confidence in the transfer of responsibility or findings.
WeProov secures exchanges, simplifies inspections and reduces litigation by allowing the creation of a photo-certified status report from a secure, fast and accessible application on mobile, tablet and web platforms.
More than just an application, WeProov comes with a performance analysis dashboard, anti-fraud tools and advanced integration systems.
The latest innovation to date, the app now offers image encryption services, supported by artificial intelligence technologies.
"We are delighted to have won this competition, especially as we stood out among several hundred startups from around the world. This prize, awarded by a jury of industry experts, further legitimizes and reinforces our product strategy and will enable us to accelerate our development in Europe and internationally. The event has already enabled us to meet future business partners that would have taken us months or years to reach on our own", explains Alexandre Meyer of WeProov.

Many thanks also to the 478 participants and all the partners who have supported us over the past year in organizing the world's largest automotive innovation and mobility competition, says David Puech, Marketing and Development Director of the Mondial Paris Motor Show.
"Organizing this startup competition was a real challenge because no one in the industry had ever before embarked on such a broad global initiative. This first edition was a real success because we were able to bring together experts in the ecosystem, both business leaders and investors. Moreover, for the winners of each category, in addition to WeProov, the adventure continues because they will benefit from a concrete collaboration with the sponsors in their category. No doubt that they will be at the top very soon! »
