“Once you have your diploma in hand, to whom will you sell your intelligence?” This is how Catherine Berthillier, founder of Shamengo, captured the attention of the 300 Master students gathered in the Efrei lecture hall.

After recounting the history of Shamengo and the importance of innovation in our society in crisis, Catherine presented the Shamengo pioneers working in the ICT field. The objective of this talk was to inspire the young generation of engineers and computer scientists and make them think “glocal” (local solutions to global issues).

“If Shamengo allows you to put some ethics at the heart of your professional project, through the examples of social entrepreneurs who use technology in the service of a green or social cause, then we will have fulfilled the mission of Shamengo: Inspire your life. “.

Efrei students designed and developed the “Shamengo Villa” application, which allowed users to interactively discover the innovations presented at Le Bourget from November 30 to 11 Dec 2015.
