On Wednesday 18 September 2019, Olivier Goy, founder of the platform, was preparing a breakfast unlike any other. It was at Bercy that the names of the 40 start-ups in the Next40 ranking were officially announced, including October 😳
A little bit of context…
The Next40 is a selection of 40 French start-ups 🇫🇷 with high potential and the ambition to quickly become world-class technological leaders. It brings together French unicorns, unlisted technology companies valued at more than one billion dollars, as well as start-ups selected according to their economic performance (largest fundraising, criteria for turnover and revenue growth).
…And some key figures
A real support for our ambitions
In addition to the undisputed visibility provided by the Next40, these 40 start-ups are offered real one-year support: collecting, prioritizing and responding to their needs by providing a specific and individual response.
“The success of French Tech must now be translated into the development of several dozen technological leaders. This is a challenge in terms of jobs, because only the world champions are capable of creating tens of thousands of jobs in a few years. We must support our nuggets so that it becomes a reality.” – Cédric O, Secretary of State for Digital Technology.
Thank you to our entire community of Lenders, Borrowers, Partners for believing in October and without whom this adventure would not be possible 🙏 We look forward to continuing this journey with you!
