The experts of MIT Technology Review have selected 10 young French talents that will build our future. Among these 10 entrepreneurs under 35, 5 are graduates of one of the founding members of Université Paris-Saclay.
Morgane Barthod & wind energy
A graduate of École polytechnique, Morgane Barthod has created Meteo*Swift, a startup that can forecast the wind electricity generation, thanks to artificial intelligence and big data. A good way to make wind energy more reliable, compared with the more constant in time nuclear energy.
Clémence Franc & cancer
A graduate of HEC Entrepreneurs, Clémence Franc co-founded NovaGray which improves the lives of cancer patients: the company allows to identify which patients are risking heavy side effects following radiotherapy, in order to better personalize the treatment.
Sidarth Radjou & medical errors
Graduated from École Centrale de Paris (now CentraleSupélec), Sidarth Radjou is co-founder of Biomodex. This company can reproduce the organs of a patient identically with 3D printing, so that surgeons can practise before an operation. The goal is to reduce the rate of medical errors.
Antoine Noël & lower back pain
A graduate of HEC, Antoine Noël co-founded Japet Medical Devices. Connected to a mobile application, their Atlas exoskeleton decompresses the spine to help people suffering from lower back pain to follow a series of exercises. Patients can thus properly develop the muscles in their back and relieve the pain.
