After Covid-19 : for a better future

We’re all concerned by the impact of the current situation to our daily lives, our homes and our work. We’ve taken some time to explore challenges and opportunities faced by every single sector, and maybe we’ll all work together on a better future.

Join us on our journey with our new podcast series “Le Jour d’Après” (in French)

Our programs

Startup Studio

Originate and build a startup with our team and partners.

We provide our studio founders with €250k in cash, 6 months of bespoke support, and access to scale opportunities through our strategic corporate partners.

We are constantly analyzing problems and looking for the right founders to turn these concepts into fully fledged companies.

Scale Program

Work with our team and partners to go further, faster.

We invest tickets valued at €250k split between cash, office space and 6 months of bespoke operational support.

We structure the deal as a BSA-AIR and take 3%-8% equity, depending on the startup’s current valuation.

We promote partnerships

We’re partnered with companies that already have huge scale, now imagine them being put to work for your start-up. We call that unfair advantage. We know how powerful finding a partnership with these business giants can be, so we’re making it easier.

We’re a team

We’ve built a team with all of the expertise a startup could need. That means there’s a lot of us and as soon as you start you can see us as an extension of your team. We’re here to give you the skills you need so you can go faster for less cash.

We tailor our support

We work closely with our founders on what their startup needs before tailoring our support. This means working together on the bits that will make the biggest difference. The things that our uniquely valuable to your startup.
