'Early-stage' projects (seeking financing to encourage the company’s development in a mid-term objective) may receive between 100,000€ and 500,000€, depending on the quality of the submission and its business potential. Publicis Groupe will award these sums in the form of convertible bonds.
Regarding Publicis Groupe employees who would be selected, the Groupe offers them the opportunity to develop their project full time during 6 months (while keeping all their current job benefits including their salary).
