The challenge of this year’s edition of the URWxHEC Paris Hackaton? Designing an original experiential concept for a 3,500 sqm space.
60 students from HEC Paris spent 2 days at our Paris Headquarters delving into sustainable ways to tackle this year’s challenge while being coached by experts from both HEC Paris and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield. At the end of which they pitched their ideas to a jury.
Our teams were excited to hear the thought-provoking and innovative ideas this year’s candidates came up with - and did they deliver remarkably!
One idea hit the mark: congratulations to the winning team - Sarah Guigui, Helena Vandendriessche, Guillaume de Monclin, Marion Ullard, Estelle Marti, Guillaume Blaise, Luca Bergantino and Silvia Sanchez - and their impressive “Chez Papi et Mamie” concept.
The URWxHEC Paris Hackathon, created in 2019 aims at developing open innovation within Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield by leveraging great ideas and creativity from students bold enough to share avant-garde, pioneering views on the Group's mixed-used and retail projects.
