Sensory Challenge

Does your startup offer a product or service that stimulates the senses? Don't waste another second and take part in the Sensory challenge!

Take part in the Sensory Challenge and win the chance to work with a leading global player which is specialised in care and services for fragile people!


Does your startup offer a product or service which stimulates the senses? What are you waiting for? Take part in the Sensory Challenge! Work with the ORPEA Group by presenting your solution and its added value. ORPEA will test and implement the best solutions in its facilities.  


The ORPEA Group is a leading global player, operating in 23 countries. It provides care for fragile people with a network of more than 1,100 medical facilities, assisted living facilities, clinics and home care services.


This international challenge is for you if you think your startup has a real added value when it comes to providing residents of care facilities, assisted living facilities, hospitals or clinics with real multi-sensory rituals to improve their daily lives. 

Startups offering single-sensory solutions are encouraged to create an integrated proposal with other complementary solutions to provide a multi-sensory experience.

The best startups will be invited to pitch their ideas [in Puteaux or online, depending on the situation with the pandemic] to a multi-disciplinary and international panel of judges, representing the Group's various countries of operation.

Given the collaborative nature of this initiative, you will retain the intellectual property rights to your project at the end of the challenge.
