Who are the LVMH Innovation Award finalists?

It was back in 2017 when the LVMH group created the LVMH Innovation Award as part of Viva Technology. The challenge was to recognise the most innovative startup in the field of the customer experience.

Each year, 30 startups are chosen as finalists and invited to be part of the LVMH Lab during the Viva Technology Show in Paris. The show brings together the game changers who drive the digital transformation around the world. At the end of this year’s LVMH Innovation Award, the winner will receive a one-year personalised support and a place in la Maison des Startups LVMH.
