The start-up created by Fanny Couronné and Marion Woirhaye has received a prize as part of the fourth call for projects for the 'Innovation Workshop' launched by the Basque Coast–Adour Agglomeration. This support will help the young company, based at the Izarbel Technology Park, to accelerate its growth. 


For its fourth edition, the Innovation Workshop call for projects, led by the Basque Coast–Adour Agglomeration in partnership with ESTIA, has honoured three companies with grants of €20,000. For the company Hors Limites 64, which publishes the Wikicampers platform for individuals to rent motor homes, this grant will be vital for its technological development.


Created by Marion Woirhaye and Fanny Couronne at the Izarbel Technology Park in 2012, the Wikicampers website brings together 1,500 vehicle owners for 10,000 customers as of summer 2016. The project presented to the Innovation Workshop 2016 is a total redesign of the website and the creation of a mobile application.


'The aim of this redesign is to add new features such as switching to paper-free rental contracts and practical advice from travellers', explained the two founders of Wikicampers at the Innovation Workshop 2016 awards ceremony held at the Arkinova technology park on 24 November 2016.


The ten-strong Wikicampers team will soon be supplemented by a head of IT responsible for redesigning the website and creating the mobile application. The grant from the Basque Coast–Adour Agglomeration will partly finance this position.
