StartUp42, EPITA's startup accelerator, launched its new incubation session a few weeks ago. In total, seven new projects will benefit for four months from the technical and professional resources offered by the accelerator in order to be able to present at the end a finalized product or application.

During the first incubation session, seven companies were created. Among them were Mobeye, which came third in the 2013 Microsoft Imagine Cup France and MotionLead, which started to develop internationally, in Europe and in the USA.
