AWS and Agorize: a collaboration that has withstood the coronavirus crisis

2020 also saw the beginning of an unprecedented health crisis, which proved the resilience of the Agorize model. If we have always believed that innovation rhymes with human contact and exchange, it was essential for us to ensure everyone's safety and to scrupulously respect the health recommendations in force.

To do this, Agorize and AWS set up in a few weeks an unprecedented 100% online, interactive and fun Finale, allowing candidates to pitch their project in front of the juries in an ideal way, as if everything was happening in real life!

The operation lasted two hours, interspersed with the candidates' presentations, animations by our managers and an Oscar-worthy award ceremony.
