Groupe La Poste
For La Poste being present everywhere and everyday for all is a fundamental feature. It is a company for which customer relationship focuses on people and trust. It is a Group, which aligns human and digital networks to make day-to-day life easier. At La Poste, innovation is for the benefit of all.
At La Poste, innovation is an ecosystem relying not only on the expertise of its team but also on start-ups, alliances with large firms, think tanks, and academics… This eco-system makes La Poste more modern and innovative, able to propose high-performance products new to the market like 3D printing service in post offices aswell as the “Staby”, a 3-wheel electric scooter for postmen. All of this in order to please clients better.
Those innovations give “a new perception of La Poste” for everybody, everywhere and everyday.
Placing innovation and people at the centre of our lives is a belief that Groupe La Poste shares with the Napoleons. A conviction based on the history of La Poste, which has always facilitated the diffusion of innovation to all its customers. The tradition of useful innovation for all, that is what La Poste wants to share with actors of the Napoleons.
Founded in 1850 with its legendary courier services at the time of the gold rush, AmEx cultivates values such as Service, Trust and Security since its inception. The invention of the famous Traveller Cheque marks in 1891 the turning to the world of means of payment. Early in the 20th century, the brand set up its business travel branch and with the development of tourism at the end of the World War II, she launched one of the first credit cards (1958). As a true pioneer, the group incorporated the first services associated with cards to individuals (insurance, shipping etc.) and then to businesses. We also owe to the American Express Group the birth of the Concierge Service in 1984 as well as the origin of different ranges and colors of cards or the advent of the co-branding system with iconic partners. Since a few years, AmEx has been the first financial player to develop innovative products based on new purchasing channels such as Twitter or Facebook, offering its card members an outlandish experience and a pioneering vision of its savoir-faire.
This outstanding player in the financial services partnered with the Napoleons network to share its insight based on a deep knowledge on mobility, buying behavior, retention, loyalty, payments means about… future of Shopping.
We are also proud to announce that Amex also accepted to operate the Innovative Communications Summits “Conciergerie” with its talented know-how, to take care of our Innovative Communications Summits attendees.
To continuously enhance customer satisfaction, SNCF thrives on innovation to anticipate customer expectation and tomorrow’s needs.
Several years ago, SNCF chose to innovate in the digital area with voyages-sncf.com. Convinced that the potential of digital technologies could individualize and humanize the relationships with its 10 million customers daily, the group has made a strong commitment in digital technologies like the app SNCF Direct to find all the necessary information for a trip in real time, the app TV Connecté Voyages-SNCF.com, dedicated to the discovery of France and Europe,etc…
Digital technologies allow us to innovate in distribution, in customer relationship, in production and in the economic model, notably through ideas coming from outside like “start-uppers” from Le Camping, business incubators in which SNCF is a partner and also the platform open data created by SNCF to bring out applications to revolutionize services, received an award at Netexplo Change in 2012.
We became partner of the Napoleons because we are share the same open and receptive attitude and we explore all the sources of inspiration to bring on innovations able to revolutionize the services.

Val d’Isère had the fortune to be identified as early as the 1930s as an ideal site for winter sports. Rapidly, the work and determination of the progressive local population brought it international renown by developing a world-class ski area continually evolving with the latest innovations in equipment. Development has always been achieved paying constant attention to the protection of the environment, making it one of the world’s most technically advanced and at the same time humanely preserved ski resorts. It was native son, Jean- Claude Killy, who lent his name to the ski area. Since the 1968 Grenoble Olympics, with Christine and Marielle Gouatchel , and more recently with the new generation of champions (including snowboarders Mathieu Bozzetto , Hugo Geraci and Tom Lesuire ), the glory of the resort has been constantly rekindled. It has now been nearly 60 years that the area has continually hosted several Alpine events per year. Champions from around the world gathered for the first snow Criterium, the organization of the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games, and the 2009 World Championships, all of which have affirmed the place of Val d’Isère within the highest ranks of winter sports arenas specializing in international competitions.
Our aim at the Napoleons was to held our Innovative Communications Summit in a genuine and unspoiled place. A place that shares our values and our movement toward Innovation. Val d’Isère strongly embodies all that and will welcome our panelists allowing them to move easily (not more than 15mn by walk between our Conference hall, hotels and other facilities).
With Innovation at its heart, the involvement of Val d’Isère in welcoming the Napoleons was an obvious choice. The resort offers its world famous ski area and its many premium infrastructures for the perfect coordination and reception of our panelists and conferences.
TheFamily reunites everything that entrepreneurs could wish for from a “loving family” supporting and encouraging, as a primary goal, the successful creation of start-ups. An “accelerator”, it refuses to be categorized as a mentor, without losing sight however of what start-ups and large companies can mutually share with each other. Its intention is not to prescribe “recipes” for success, but help to avoid needlessly wasted time following red-herrings. Specifically, it eases legal and financial deliberations, and helps build strategic partnerships allowing its members to devote themselves fully to the deployment of their ideas. In sum, TheFamily assists entrepreneurs in becoming what they want to be.
Innovation is not only TheFamily’s doctrine; it is embedded in the genes of its founders. Alice Zagury, Nicolas Colin and Osama Ammar, already excelling in this fresh new field since March 2013, have already updated and improved it. Owning a stake of up to 1%, they prefer collaborative work, strongly encourage the “give-back” attitude, do not put limits on the time necessary for coaching, and do not prematurely disclose the name of their protégés.
Currently, they can proudly point to their contributions to stunning start-up ventures such as Qapa , Bunkr or Polagram . This is the kind of visionary approach that the Napoleons are honored to help promote, and especially so at the inauguration of the Innovative Communications Summit. At this event, TheFamily will be sharing with the Napoleons community its findings on French start-ups and international initiatives that create or benefit from positive-feedback systems.
