At the end of the acceleration you have validated ...
Build stuff that really matters for your customers
According to Marc Andreessen (entrepreneur, investor and board member at Facebook, HP and eBay), Product-market fit means being in a good market with a product that can satisfy that market.
To succeed in getting that product-market fit right, you will need to precisely identify your customers, their problems / needs and develop the right solution to answer it.
We have developed a program to coach you in achieving this goal. During the 16 weeks of the program you will be followed by one full-time mentor from NUMA and one dedicated UI (User Interface) designer from Attoma.
Determine who are your target users, identify what are their needs and problems, evaluate the market and business opportunity. This phase will run from September to October.
Design a solution (product or service) that make sense, prototype and develop MVPs to test your idea, find your business model and iterate. We will work on this phase from November to December.

NUMA worked with Elior so as to elaborate and run their intrapreneurship innovation program called life4. This initiative aims to promote and support potential sources of innovation within the company as well as adapt and react to the emergence of disruptive solutions in the food industry. Part of the strategic plan for 2016-2020, life4's goal is to place Elior at the heart of the FoodTech ecosystem.
We have worked with 38 teams from France, Spain, Italy, UK and USA. This first phase aimed at helping project leaders to better define their target user and to give them the required tools and methods to adopt lean work methods (focusing on delivering the right solution for the right user). After a selection phase, we have worked with a remaining 12 teams to define and/or validate the market opportunity, the business model and the ressources required to develop prototypes.

Messagerie Pro: Orange’s webmail application for its professional clients. This messaging system, designed to respond to professional users’ demands, is accessible via mobile, tablet, and computer.
Orange was seeking to provide their professional clients with a streamlined experience by creating a messaging service designed for desktop access as well as mobile access via tablet or (smart)phone. Attoma, known for its expertise in the UX domain, was hired to improve the Orange customer’s experience across multiple devices.
Through close collaboration with Orange’s Design and User Experience team, (D&U) Attoma set up an agile design process. Every month, attoma co-creates user journeys, constantly upgrading existing functions or introducing new ones within the application. The agency also redefined the application’s function parameters, revised its information architecture and proposed a user experience that is adapted to each device. The look & feel of the interface was also revised to meet user expectations.
The new pro messaging service allows professionals to have access to all of their e-mails, address books, calendars, faxes, and text messages on all of their screens, whether mobile or desktop.
Currently, more than 3 million professionals use Orange’s pro messaging service.
