Gold of Bengal, the asso

Gold of Bengal, the asso

The adventure at the service of innovation, useful and durable.
In 1950,. Bombard across the Atlantic on an inflatable raft in order to demonstrate that it is possible to survive with a minimum of equipment. Today, this type of raft team most of the boats in the world and saved thousands of lives.
That would it have been if Bombard had worked in a laboratory to validate his idea rather than on the ground?

That is our philosophy. We believe that the adventure can be a real lever to tackle the great problems of our time differently. And such a positive and optimistic. We also believe that the proof by example is the best way to demonstrate the potential of a solution and to inspire its replication.

The adventure as a catalyst for innovations, vector of awareness and unifying tool.
