About L'Atelier :
For 35 years, L'Atelier BNP Paribas has been detecting breakthrough innovations that herald major changes for companies and helping them transform these innovations into concrete, operational projects.
As part of the BNP Paribas Group, L'Atelier is clearing the way for technological innovations in all sectors to detect emerging uses and reveal their full potential for businesses and society as a whole.
The originality of its monitoring system is based on its presence in three major innovation areas (Paris, San Francisco and Shanghai), but also on its operating mode in an architecture that is open to the non-banking world.
L'Atelier is both a media and content producer (website, radio), a crossroads for exchange and sharing (conferences, study trips with immersion with local players), but also digital strategy consulting for companies. Finally, in an open innovation approach, the Lab completes the system by bringing together innovative entrepreneurs and large companies to accelerate the development of their joint projects.
