HandyTown

The particularity of HandyTown compared to the other two supported projects is its competence in cultural mediation: the start-up is still young but it already has all the skills necessary for the digitization of heritage visits.

Originally from Rouen, the four members of the team are developing an application for personalized tourist routes. In addition, each content available on the application is written with pedagogy on the basis of archives and is based on real historical research. The project being in development, the support offered on the experiments allowed the young start-up in creation to benefit from expert advice and advice to develop its strategy and discover its new economic model. HandyTown worked with the City of Deauville to create the "Deauville, Imperial City" route, available for a few weeks, which immerses visitors in the history of the seaside resort through the stories of great figures.
