We invest up to 800k€ for each startup created within the Studio

We execute fast : once the creation opportunity has been verified, financing is available within a few weeks

Our financing partners enable long term development of our Startups (A+ round financing, exit opportunities...)

Testimonials

Lucas Le Bell - CEO CERBAIR

Lucas Le Bell

CEO CERBAIR

By joining CERBAIR, I decided to carry my own project on a subject that not only fascinated me but also for which I saw an extremely promising market.

Today more than ever, I realize how difficult it is to undertake, so I am delighted to have been able to do this in a privileged environment, accompanied by a structure very formative, experienced and responsible.

Leaving a large group to join a small start-up company, one quickly understands the importance of the quality and cohesion of the men and women who compose it. I am lucky to be surrounded by talented people at Technofounders, enabling me to learn and progress very quickly, moreover in a relaxed atmosphere, so why deprive yourself?

By joining TechnoFounders and its community of startups, I entered the world of entrepreneurship and had the opportunity to discover and evaluate the potential of many technologies.

This experience at TechnoFounders helped me gain new skills, essentials for a future entrepreneur, and above all allowed me to find my project and the team with whom I wanted to launch a company.
