Shake’Up: The 6th Call for Projects Dedicated to Artificial Intelligence

Launched in 2016, Shake’Up is a unique, tailor-made startup accelerator initiated by Wavestone. The ambition of this program is to develop a vision of the startup ecosystem that creates value for its clients, the startups themselves and Wavestone employees. Today, Shake’Up brings together a community of nearly 55 startups, alongside 150 of the firm’s employees, who are involved in their development. Buoyed by the success of recent calls for projects, which have welcomed Yuka, Tolv, Isahit, Olvid, Hackuity and Néolithe, Shake’Up is launching its 6th annual call for projects this year.

For this new edition, given Wavestone’s technological DNA, the firm is focusing on the theme of artificial intelligence, in line with the importance it holds today in both business and society.

The most promising ideas will be offered tailor-made, personalized support.


Wavestone targets start-ups with at least one solution or product already defined, and who wish to be supported in their development across the firm’s expertise in 3 areas of business, technology, and sustainable development. Start-ups will also benefit from business contacts with Wavestone clients. The winning companies will be supported by Shake’up for one year. They have the opportunity to be hosted on the firm’s premises if necessary and will benefit from coaching to help their overall strategy (business model, value proposition, technological contribution, etc.). The winning Startups will also benefit from Wavestone’s international network of offices.

Applications opened on Thursday, February 22. Startups have several weeks to apply and provide key information to fully understand their business model and value proposition.

After an initial selection by the Shake’Up team, the companies that stand out in the first phase will be invited to pitch their projects on June 20, 2024, at Wavestone’s office in La Défense. The jury will be made up of Wavestone experts, the firm’s partners and journalists who follow the technology and start-up markets.

The 2024 edition is dedicated to artificial intelligence, a disruption that was particularly discussed in 2023, and which is sure to remain at the center of preoccupations. AI is turning every sector upside down, and is raising profound questions about the evolution of our professions. And let’s not forget that the start-up ecosystem moves very fast and is often a trend-setter. So it’s only natural that we should dedicate the Call for Projects to this topic.
