PORTRAIT OF THE WEEK: PLAGIO
Discover the five graduating start-ups of the 2019 Elan Program, watch their pitch, and learn about their experience as a Cilex incubé. For this last episode, we talk with Michel Favre, Plagio founder!
1- What has motivated you to launch your project?
While following a course on plagiocephaly, I realized that the methods for the precise evaluation of cranial deformations were hard to do and that it was possible to automatize them. Having a computer background, I decided to computerize the evaluation process.
2- What have you learned during these 12 weeks (know-how as much as “savoir-être”)
During the 12 weeks of the Elan program, I learned that having a product is one thing, but mobilize a market around the product is another. I also met charming people, each expert in their field. Whether in marketing, finance, or administration, these persons allowed me to widen my field of consciousness.
3- What advice would you give to your past self, three months ago (or to a beginner entrepreneur)?
The advice I would give to myself is: don’t be afraid of meeting and talking with your market and this even if your product is far from perfect. Also, always be ready to change direction!
