2nd consecutive nomination for the Trophée Innover à la Campagne
Last year, we were delighted to discover that our application had been selected for two trophies at the 2020 edition: the grand prize "Innovating in the countryside" and the special prize of the Federation of Regional Natural Parks. We presented our patented multi-purpose ultralight baby travel cot Naos, a real commercial success and the best ally of parents on the move.
What is the Innover à la Campagne Trophy?
The countryside is full of ideas and talent! This prize highlights stories, young or not so young, but above all innovative projects in all fields: technology, agriculture, environment, social, culture, industry...
Our application was based on the innovation of our products, and on the human values of our company GO FREE, under the brand Escape Lifestyle. We were able to develop our vision of a virtuous, circular, local economy and our ambitions to contribute to the attractiveness of our region.
Located in the heart of the Luberon Regional Nature Park, we are fortunate to work in a setting that allows us to unleash our creativity and design our innovations in complete freedom and close to the Aix-Marseille urban area. Participating in this trophy, which revalorises the province, was an obvious choice!
The members of the jury
We were proud and happy to support our project in front of a jury of great French and emblematic entrepreneurs such as: Louis SCHWEITZER, former president of Renault and Initiative France, Jean Sébastien DECAUX, founding president of the endowment fund Terre et Fils, Bernard CHEVILLIAT president of Melvita and manager of l'Occitane, Eric DE KERMELl director of Bayard Nature, Serge PAPIN former director of Système U, Nathalie VILLARD, journalist at Capital Magazine. Although slightly intimidated, we defended our project and gave it our all. The jury's feedback was very positive, but at the time we had not achieved all the criteria necessary to win the trophy.
We had a fabulous experience, sharing our stories with other entrepreneurs and mentors from all sectors, but always with the same desire to do things consciously and work for a better world.
The awards ceremony took place in a majestic and spectacular setting, in the Pont du Gard premises in Uzès. We had great opportunities to expand our network and our horizons during the meetings and debates together.
It is quite natural that we have chosen to present our application again for the year 2021. After the Covid transition and its impact on our business, as a supplier of nomadic products for travelling with baby, we needed to continue our projects and live our dreams. We therefore submitted our application for the manufacture of our ultra-light and patented baby bouncer, the most compact in the world (1KG) and made in France. We have finalized our last prototypes, and are in the process of certification to launch our production with a release on the market in September. We had the pleasure of being nominated among the 12 companies selected for the grand prize of the "Innover à la campagne" Trophy
