Our arrival in the retail tech accelerator, a partnership between Silicon Valley's largest American accelerator, Plug and Play, and the Galeries Lafayette Group, marks the beginning of the Ownest adventure. This support has put us in touch with corporate decision-makers while benefiting from the expertise of successful mentors and entrepreneurs. This three-month business development program has allowed us to increase our visibility and thus boost the development of our logistics activity.

Sirius Award for "Business Transformation" for the "Easy Shopping" retail technology project with Le Groupe La Poste and integration of the Cdiscount group's logistics accelerator The Warehouse
The Sirius Award recognizes the most innovative collaborative projects to better meet customer needs, optimize the value chain and restore meaning to the company.
We won the "Business Transformation" award at the Sirius competition of the Trade Institute with La Poste Group in September 2018, thanks to our retail service offer "Easy Shopping".
Having identified a need for La Poste Group to diversify its business in a fast-growing travel retail market, we focused on eliminating the irritants encountered by tourists during their purchasing processes in France (the tax-free process is particularly long and complex). The "Easy Shopping" offer allows the user to make purchases without any constraints. The use of the Public Blockchain allows us to connect many partners, to secure all transfers of responsibility within the Easy Shopping service value chain.
Selected among 4 other startups, including Agrikolis, we have joined the accelerator dedicated to the supply chain of the e-merchant Cdiscount.
Participation in the SITL Europe 2019 exhibition in partnership with E-Dentic
For our third participation in the international transport and logistics exhibition, we have chosen to develop synergies with the E-Dentic video tracking startup.
In parallel, our CEO Clément Bergé Lefranc participated in two round tables and a workshop.
