The southern French startup accelerator !

 

FIRST REGIONAL ACCELERATOR POWERED BY NUMA

The launch of the NUMA Montpellier acceleration programme is a real first in France. Despite the large number of first-class startups (Sigfox, Scoopit, Bime Analytics, Vogo, 1001 Pharma, Delair Tech, etc.), the companies of the LRMP region didn't have a structured acceleration programme.

Supported by NUMA, France's major support structure for startups, applications for NUMA Montpellier's acceleration programme will be provided with access to an international network of alumni. The accelerator will welcome around ten startups in each round of promotion. They will mainly come from regional public incubators, engineering and IT schools. In return for the acceleration, they will transfer 5 percent of their capital to NUMA Montpellier.

Allowing regional entrepreneurs to receive our know-how and our assets by offering a local version
of the NUMA Montpellier programme makes sense. There is a huge ecosystem in the LRMP region, and so some
great startups to accelerate.”
— Olivier Mougenot, NUMA’s Investment Director

 

CAP OMEGA: THE PLACE TO BE FOR STARTUPS

Located in Cap Omega, Languedoc-Roussillon and Montpellier's major incubation structure, NUMA Montpellier will become 'the place to be'. Many success stories like Intrasense, Meditech and Oceasoft were born in this structure located just minutes away from the Mediterranean Sea. As the 4 th best incubator in the world (according the UBI index), Cap Omega has welcomed 500 innovative companies in strategic sectors such as healthcare, genomics, pharmaceuticals, communications, telecom networks, electronics, software and the environment. The BIC (which contains Cap Alpha, Cap Omega and MIBI) is Europe's only board member at the NBIA, offering an astonishing 5300 square meters of work space.


THE INITIATIVE OF TWENTY SUCCESSFUL REGIONAL ENTREPRENEURS

About twenty entrepreneurs, CEOs and investors will be linked to this programme. Some of them will invest personally in the project. XLR Capital, the entrepreneurship fund launched in 2015 by three French entrepreneurs, will also be involved. Five resident advisors will be there to assist the selected companies in various fields such as law, accounting, communications, and business and technical development. To ensure a perfect match between the needs of start-ups and the programme, they will be assisted by mentors as well.

I’m really happy to be the godmother of this programme. I’m convinced that a great support in the first years of a startup can make a difference. NUMA is a national and international reference, it is a positive sign that they are willing to work with a regional group of entrepreneurs.”
 

 

RACHEL DELACOUR,
GODMOTHER OF THE FIRST SESSION

Among the most iconic regional entrepreneurs, Rachel Delacour, founder of BIME (acquired by ZENDESK in 2015), has agreed to become the godmother of NUMA Montpellier's first session.
