Paris Accelerator Welcomes 10 Late-Stage Startups to Batch 6

Last week, we kicked off our Paris Accelerator with 10 startups focusing on everything from B2B marketing to retail to Big Data. For this batch, our sixth, we received over 250 applicants—twice as many as we received last fall.

Selecting just 10 companies out of an applicant pool of this size can be quite a challenge, so we rely on a jury consisting of industry experts. This time around, our jury included partners EDF and Dassault Aviation alongside investors from Partech Ventures, Kima Ventures, Elaia Partners, Alven Capital, Ader Finance, and Bpifrance.

Unlike previous batches, we’re focusing on later stage startups for our spring program. Specifically, we’ve selected startups looking to raise 500K€-2M€ within the next 6 to 9 months. Ader Finance, an advisory firm with industry fundraising expertise, will be coaching our startups on their fundraising efforts.

As batch 6 moves full speed ahead with the program, we invite you to follow along with their progress, news, and accomplishments on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! And don’t miss your chance to be part of batch 7—applications open May 1st.

Without further delay, we are excited to introduce the Paris Accelerator’s new cohort:
