Adra’UP: Dawex chosen as best startup
Founded in 2002, ADRA is a professional network for mutual support and good practices regarding purchasing. The association launched its Adra'UP event to promote startups and their projects among major groups.
Ludovic Verdier, Dawex Account Executive, had an opportunity to meet with purchasing directors from French and global groups.
The 2018 Adra'UP event was divided into three parts: The first was a pitch session for startups to give their pitch to an audience of about sixty purchasing directors from large groups, including Schneider Electric, Pierre & Vacances Center Parcs Group, and Lacoste.
The day continued with speed dating sessions (10 rotations of 8 minutes), which gave participants a chance to present their startups, answer questions, and speak with others about potential future collaboration.
The event concluded with the election of the best startup. Dawex was honored to be selected, ahead of Toucan Toco, a startup specializing in data visualization. This prestigious recognition gives Dawex an opportunity to give another pitch at a future event for decision-makers in large groups.
Dawex's designation as best startup demonstrates the increasing maturity of large companies with respect to exchanging data.
