open innovation ans start-up funding : To meet the challenges of an ever-changing society, a multi-skilled group like La Poste must constantly reinvent itself.

Under the leadership of Nathalie Collin, Deputy CEO of La Poste group in charge of the Consumer and Digital sector, La Poste is strongly committed to promoting the role of women in the digital sector. Nearly 40% of the startups presented by La Poste in its Le Lab are run or co-run by women. The French IoT Impact x Technologie accelerator, which emphasises parity in the management teams of the start-ups it supports, is unveiling the winning startups of its 2023 competition at VivaTech. Finally, an event dedicated to women in digital technology, organised on Thursday 15 June, will reveal the winner of the 2023 Coups de cœur [2023 Favourites] #FemmesduNumérique [#WomeninDigital].
