An innovative program rewarding « smart » entrepreneurship

Here at CGI we develop innovative solutions and services designed to accelerate concretely and durably the digital performance of businesses. « Concretely » because, for us, innovation must be real, efficient, measurable and rapidly deployable. And « Durably » because innovating also means using technology for the common good (Tech for good).


Members with the best ideas will be able to benefit from specific support to bring their solution to life!

A 3-phase event

Ideas collection
16th of January to the 20th of March

After this creative thinking phase, 3 ideas will be chosen from each BU/country.

Online challenge
From June, 3rd to June, 13th

10 ideas chosen from the SBU will do battle to get the most online votes.

Hackathon
June, 12th & 13th

The same 10 ideas chosen from the SBU will do battle for 2 days at a hackathon.

Alone or as a team

You can suggest an idea alone or as a team but teamwork is always better! As we are convinced that diversity and social inclusion promote team performance, if you compete as a team, ensure that it is made up of different skills and backgrounds, and don’t hesitate to mix men and women in your team. If you post the idea, you will be the team leader and will be able to include 2 other members in your teams during the creative thinking phase.


After that, you will be able to complete your team for the hackathon (5 teammates in all), with the aim that all the teams be cross-BU and multi-discipline…


You may suggest as many ideas and join as many teams as you wish.
