On Wednesday 12th March, after 3 months of intense acceleration, the 12 start-ups gave their six minute pitches for the first time – Millimeter presentations in English only, in order to prepare for the upcoming  European roadshow to Berlin, London and Luxembourg. Without a doubt, this acceleration bore fruit.

Among them were Partech Ventures, 360 Capital Partners, Ventech, Alven Capital… "The level was very good, both in content and in form" says Michael Sassano, latest recruit at Kima Ventures in Paris.

 

 

A proven method to find seed investment, as can attest the ALUMNI 

 

Some seek funds (up to a million), others are looking for clients or mentors. The method has already been proven, as can attest Jean-François Chianetta , CEO of Augment (season 3) . It was during the Demo Day Paris that he caught the eye of an investor, which allowed him to raise 220,000 euros from several business angels in April 2013.

The results are already positive. Some have expanded their team, such as Localeyes. Agriconomie are already planning to launch in three other European countries. Qleek is about to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Krack will soon settle on the US West Coast to continue to further develop its tool for skateboarders, after a 2 weeks acceleration at Seedcamp in London.
