We are looking for projects capable of helping VINCI build the cities and infrastructures of the future. We pay close attention to projects that can contribute to VINCI’s environmental ambitions.
We are looking for highly motivated employees with an entrepreneurial mindset and willing to join a team in order to build a vision and develop a project together.
Applications are open to intrapreneurs with a project idea and to intrapreneurs who want to join an existing project.
Incubation (4 months)
The incubation period enables the intrapreneurs to validate the problem and the market potential they have identified, to refine their value proposition and business model hypothesis and to build a comprehensive roadmap. Key elements :
The intrapreneurs will follow the « Idea to Market » certificate from Stanford University
They will have access to internal and external mentors and they will be coached by an entrepreneur in residence
An acceleration committee determines which projects will go to the acceleration phase
Acceleration (4 months)
The acceleration period enables project leaders to continue working within a VINCI hub, with the possibility of ultimately creating a new BU or activity. It notably includes:
Over two weeks, candidates benefit from tailored support to adapt their project within a VINCI hub.
Over one month, candidates develop their projects while taking actual market needs into account.
At the end of the acceleration phase, the engagement committee validates the integration of projects into the hubs and determines the conditions for the development of the future activity.
