As we turn 90, we celebrate our story by looking to the future. We wish to celebrate the pioneers of tomorrow just as our founder, Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet, was a pioneer and we at Publicis Groupe continue to transform. Through Publicis90, we will support 90 digital projects and start-ups with the most business potential through funding and mentoring.
Students, start-up founders, employees of Publicis Groupe or simply people with a great idea and a digital entrepreneur mindset were all invited to participate to Publicis90 and build the next 90 years with us.


Publicis90 is a global success: more than 6,000 participants from 141 countries have participated and 3,555 completed applications were submitted. While more than 2,000 projects were submitted by existing startuppers, the initiative also aroused Publicis Groupe employees’ interest, as they were more than 600 potential intra-preneurs to take part in the call for projects. Project holders and students could also be found among the numerous candidates who participated.
