We are proud to announce that we have been elected for the Alibaba Cloud prize at the Digiprize 4th edition. Chloé Fernagut, CEO of Mycloclo, was in Paris at the Comedia on February 21st for the award ceremony.
The Digiprize is a contest organised each year by ESSCA, a management school in Angers, Paris, Budapest and Shanghai. It allows young entrepreneurs between 17 and 25 with a digital idea or project to apply and win one of the many prizes offered by ESSCA and its partners.
The partners are always prestigious French and international companies, amongst them this year were :
- Alibaba Cloud
- Be Angels
- Warner Bros
- Sony Music
- and many more
One of the prizes was even given by Oussama Ammar, cofounder of The Family in Paris.
One hundred and twenty seven startups and entrepreneurs applied to the contest, of which 27 came from outside of France. Five international projects were awarded a spot in the ESSCA summer program.
The prize « coup de coeur » (literally heart-punch, meaning favorite), and the big prize winner, receiving tickets for a trip to Shanghai and San Francisco, were awarded to Sammy and World Wide Home. Other prize winners include Idea 2 Project, Hey Gaby, Wham, In’Pact, Diggin, Zeta, Saver, Guanxi, Basile, Kelgan, Nabu, Harmony, Bookfeed, Modelar, Robotroc, and Womendesk.
Mycloclo was selected by Alibaba Cloud for a place in the « Create @Alibaba Cloud » program for startups including a USD 10,000 coupon to use in the cloud, one-on-one support by a solutions architect and tips to expand the startup to the Chinese market.
Alibaba is a Chinese company over 17 years old, and the first e-commerce platform in the world. Alibaba Cloud is the first cloud service provider in China and ranks 5th globally.
At Mycloclo we are truly honoured to have received deep interest from such a prestigious company, as well as a very generous prize. We are already thinking about the many collaboration opportunities with Alibaba Cloud, which answers a real need for both our customers and our company being is the storage and use of data and large HD video files in the cloud.
We try to deliver the easiest and fastest experience for our customers, owners of action cameras and drones, who are looking for an effortless way to obtain a professional-quality film of their vacation or sports activities. Such video files are too often abandoned on computers and hard drives and never shared with close ones. This collaboration opportunity might greatly improve the user experience, notably in regards to the transfer of video files into our cloud.
We would like to particularly thank Alibaba who deemed our project worthy of their generous prize, ESSCA for having organised this great contest and for having opened it to anyone, as well as all those who have supported us by voting on the Digiprize website which allowed us to stand out in this contest.
