The support of entrepreneurs, both individual and collective, is mainly provided by our entrepreneurs in residence. They are supported on an ad hoc basis by external experts. The team aims to challenge the entrepreneurs and set them regular objectives, in order to help them make the right decisions and save time: the stages are short and punctuated by go/no-go decisions. Generally, the entrepreneurs in residence provide individual 360-degree coaching on the project as a whole, on both strategic and operational dimensions, from the definition of the vision to the implementation of technical subjects: agile and lean methods, sprints, iterations, MVP and POC, activity management based on indicators, bootstrapping, etc. The other experts provide collective support on a specific issue that can be technical or sectoral.
Strategic management and pragmatic support over the long term
The projects are managed according to the strategic axes and the KPIs of follow-up of the program defined and validated as of the design or the catch in hand of the program by our teams.
For each project, we deploy a support and lean methodology that allows us to iterate in an agile manner, and thus optimize the support, investment and time dedicated to each project. Entrepreneurial skills are particularly numerous and varied: strategy, marketing, sales, financial management, project management, HR, soft skills, etc. Beyond the mobilization of relevant experts, we ensure, through our teaching and transmission capacities, a transfer of skills throughout our programs, so as to progressively empower the entrepreneurs. We train them so that they acquire a solid foundation on all key topics (inspiration, product construction, startup launch, startup management, etc.) and we help them build their own ecosystem. In short, we empower them so that they can calmly and efficiently approach the growth of their project after our programs.
Our methodology for creating and managing support programs (incubation or acceleration) is based on matching opportunities and talents, precise and structured global management, and support for entrepreneurs by experienced entrepreneurs. The principle of these accompaniments is to be tailor-made, with respect to the large client groups and the accompanied entrepreneurs, and to be 360 degrees in terms of mobilized expertise and transmitted knowledge.To have a more concrete overview of our missions, 3 use cases:
The creation and piloting of an incubation program funded by CDG Invest (212 Founders).
The accompaniment of the setting up of a new public services incubator, the Smart Incubator (Ile-de-France Region).
The design and co-piloting of a Seed program (Leonard).
