After announcing the six laureates of its SEED startup program last week, Leonard is unveiling today the 11 companies joining the CATALYST program, designed to foster and accelerate partnerships between VINCI and startups and scale–ups in their commercial development phase.
In order to select these 11 companies, Leonard worked hand in hand with its investor, institutional and academic partners in France and abroad, in particular in Spain, Germany, the UK and the USA throughout 2019 .
This program aims to foster the creation of common projects between innovative companies and the VINCI Group around innovations related to its business activities. The 11 startups selected to join the program will benefit from:
- a special contact in the Leonard team to interact with VINCI entities, from first contact to signature of a contract,
- special access to VINCI decision-makers,
- being integrated to the Leonard event cycle
- for international startups, better conditions of access to French and European markets.
