A world leader in luxury, LVMH has enjoyed strong growth momentum since its creation in 1987 and, with a retail network of over 4,370 stores worldwide, recorded annual revenues of €42.6 billion in 2017.
LVMH at Viva Technology
All the employees of the LVMH group are inspired by three shared values: creativity and innovation, excellence and an entrepreneurial spirit. They are key to the performance of LVMH Maisons, and constitute the pillars of the Group’s long-term success.
Strengthening its involvement in Viva Technology as a Platinum partner this year, LVMH demonstrates its strong willingness to stay ahead in the game of digital transformation and to put startups at the very heart of its strategy. After a remarkable launch in 2017, the LVMH Innovation Award continues to write its success story this year. The Award supports emerging entrepreneurs and stimulates fresh ideas by accelerating the growth of startups and their launch in the market.
LVMH's collaboration with startups
By providing startups with great visibility at the LVMH Luxury Lab and by encouraging collaboration with the Group’s Maisons, LVMH demonstrates its core value of entrepreneurialism. Among the 30 preselected contestants who will present their disruptive ideas at the LVMH Luxury Lab, one will be granted the LVMH Innovation Award during the fair. Last year’s winner Heuritech is a prime example of how a participation at Viva Technology can lead to successful partnerships with the Group and its Maisons, in addition to contributing to stronger visibility in the French and international press and higher credibility in the market. What is more, a presence at the Lab is an incredible opportunity for startups to showcase their work, interact with possible future business partners and visitors, and receive valuable feedback from leaders in the sector.
