Delicious baguettes, good wine and the Eiffel Tower. These are just a few of the things most people think of in terms of France but right now the word we should be thinking of is innovation.
Currently the European Innovation Academy (“EIA”) is happening in Nice, France. With mentors and speakers including people from Google, Alchemist Accelerator, MobileWorks and top universities such as Wharton, London Business School and Stanford, the EIA is one of the most innovative entrepreneurship programs in the world.
This extreme accelerator gathers some of the brightest minds from Silicon Valley, Tallinn, and across Europe to mentor and challenge 500 young entrepreneurs to go from idea to initial start-up in 15 days.
Secured3D CTO Anton Vedeshin is one of the speakers at the EIA, lecturing and mentoring participants on 3D Printing. As part of the curriculum these young entrepreneurs had to devise a product, sales strategy and then take it to market. Combining the technology of Secured3D and the guidance of Anton one of the teams combined a painted picture with 3D Printed parts for a only of its kind piece of art. The end result was one of the first 3D Printed Art pieces in the world.
This piece will be up for auction in either Nice or Cannes, France and the auction will take place in the next few days. Opening bid for the final product is €1000 euros.
