The European Social Fund (ESF), Ile de France Region and Paris City Hall expressed their commiment to Silicon Sentier by supporting our actions dedicated to digital culture diffusion and projects development.
Partnerships with Silicon Sentier are set up to help you achieve your project’s objectives, respecting the codes and behaviors of each community involved or impacted, whether developers, companies, communities, local government organizations or independent entrepreneurs.
Accelerating the innovation process is critical for large and small companies alike. For SMEs this need is accentuated by the fact that they enjoy zero to minimal meaningful internal R&D services and must therefore constantly rethink their approach to innovation. Silicon Sentier offers tailored solutions for bringing together the digital ecosystem through a collective approach, alleviating the need for heavy, high-risk investment.
Global project coordination
With its dozen-strong team (link to team page), Silicon Sentier can provide a full array service, integrating needs identification and assessment, global project design, outreach to key players and pertinent communities, and operational and logistical support. No matter what the stage of a project’s development, the Silicon Sentier team can help you innovate more quickly, openly and daringly.
Silicon Sentier activates key potential partners and communities to support each project it takes on. This approach is part of the association’s core DNA, serving as the main driver of open innovation. Around a carefully defined theme, Silicon Sentier structures and mobilizes a community comprised of members with complementary profiles. Its mission: connect people and companies with shared objectives and contribute actively to the development of innovative products and services.
Where the action begins, Silicon Sentier events are designed to promote cross-fertilization and enable projects to emerge. With its proven know-how and solid experience working with communities, Silicon Sentier events bring about the conditions necessary to move from idea to project. The association’s knowledge of communities and the quality of its relationships with key digital players enables it to offer valuable advice on event design and models for collaborating with useful communities and partners.
Certain subjects are highly complex and their exploration may lead to the development of numerous successful innovations. They require the involvement of a larger number of participants over a longer period of time. To bring together such a community, record progress made during associated events and aggregate contributions and feedback, Silicon Sentier develops and maintains dedicated web platforms. Among other elements, these vital tools feature information sources and on-line spaces for exchange and experimentation. Depending on the theme, they are either overtly operated by Silicon Sentier or white labeled.
With its mission to accelerate innovation and boost competition between digital players, these platforms are comprised of resources and technical elements that help companies design their products, services or innovative content.
Organization of beta testing
A critical step in the innovation process, this pre-launch phase is decisive for any product or service. In addition to the challenge of designing beta tests in accordance with practical and operational factors, companies are faced with the need to construct a targeted, dedicated and appropriate beta-testing community. This is the overriding condition for successful beta testing, in particular its contribution to product or service improvement.
Silicon Sentier acts alone or in partnership to structure beta tests and then to carefully manage and monitor their smooth progress from roll-out to conclusion. To that end, the association recruits beta testers from within pertinent communities according to project parameters and needs, tracks experimentation and interacts with the testing community. At the conclusion of the beta-test phase, Silicon Sentier can gather and structure feedback to enable you to gauge tester reactions, gather feedback and fully incorporate lessons learned. Armed with that vital information, you can make the last-minute changes necessary to make the final version of your product or service the readiest possible for market launch.
