Now a fixture on the agenda of leading European and international investors as one of France's must-attend tech events, this third edition extends the selection of companies beyond the SATTs to include the main public research organizations: CEA, CNRS, INRIA and Inserm. Together, these five organizations represent almost the entire French public research ecosystem, one of the vectors of which is company creation. Between 2011 and 2017, these structures supported the creation of 836 start-ups, which raised 370 funds over the period, for a total amount of over 1 billion euros.
40 start-ups have been selected by investors, based on several criteria (value proposition, growth potential, team, market size...) from these 836 companies, to take part in this third edition of the French Tech Transfer Invest on February 13 and 14. After being trained in the pitching exercise, they will have the opportunity to present themselves to a jury of 60 European investors, with whom they will also be able to exchange ideas during networking sessions. These 40 start-ups will also be integrated into Bpifrance's EuroQuity platform, which offers enhanced visibility and a digital service to put them in touch with their development partners.
