For this 2022 edition of the Orange Fab program, focused on the development of Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Metaverse experiences, all the pre-selected start-ups had the opportunity to pitch their project in front of the Orange Luxembourg and Orange Belgium jury. At the end of the final pitch, 3 start-ups have been selected:

By joining the Orange Fab program, they will have the opportunity to work with Orange teams in order to implement a concept aimed at the group's customers. For several years now, Orange has been supporting the start-up ecosystem in an innovative approach. Through Orange Fab, Orange's aim is to work with innovative players who are essential drivers of the digital transformation of organizations.

Success Stories

Over the past six years, the Orange Fab BeLux program has given rise to several success stories. EmailTree, a Luxembourg start-up offering a solution to gain productivity in customer email management, was integrated into the program during a previous edition. OTIV, last season's winner, made its solution 5G compatible using Orange's test environment. Thanks to the advice of experts, it now has various partnerships at European level.
