Testimony from a fund or a major group
Alexandre Jouvé, Principal Investment Director | Theodorus
“Genopole is a real facilitator in sourcing what we are looking for: new technologies that will impact the future of health. Our fund Theodorus invests in early-stage biotech and medtech companies. We know that the accelerated companies at Genopole have a serious project. It is a badge of quality for us.”
Thibault Vanvincq, Investment Partner | JoyancePartners
“Our collaboration works well with Genopole, which regularly introduces us to companies that correspond to our investment theses. Partnering Week is the right format to contact a pre-selection of companies. This is an interesting opportunity for our fund, which wishes to invest in more French start-ups, at their early stage. Our guideline is well-being with a very scientific angle: physical and mental health, the microbiota, the development of alternative proteins…“.
Laurent Chantalat in charge of Scouting, Open Innovation | L’ORÉAL, Research & Innovation
“Last year, I made contact with several very interesting startups thanks to Partner*. This has paid off since we are finalizing a partnership with one of them. What interests me at Genopole, which is a major synthetic biology cluster, is discovering new technologies that are seemingly outside of our industry: for example, a biosourced ingredient for the paint sector which may have interesting properties for make-up or hair coloring… I am curious again this year to have access to new biotech innovations, a field that the cosmetics industry will increasingly use in the future“.
