Leonard launches two programmes dedicated to startups!

Leonard is enriching its startup support offering with SEED and CATALYST, two new programmes designed to foster entrepreneurial innovation and cooperation between VINCI and startups with promising solutions for the future of cities and infrastructures.

Participate in the emergence of future entrepreneurial leaders

The aim of the SEED program is to support start-ups in the validation of their market and the refinement of their product or solution during a four-month program hosted in Leonard:Paris, a stone’s throw from the Gare de Lyon station and in the heart of the Parisian innovation hub.

The twenty startups selected each year will benefit from the support of the Leonard team, participate in a startup curriculum recognized by Stanford University, gain contacts with experts from the VINCI group, receive € 30K in cash and free accommodation for the duration of the programme. This investment by VINCI will be valued through the emission of “Bons de Souscription” (BSA Air).

With SEED, Leonard’s ambition is to bring European entrepreneurial leaders to the forefront of city and territory issues. Launch scheduled for fall 2019.

Accelerate cooperation between the VINCI Group and startups

The CATALYST program aims to support the creation of joint projects between startups, scale-up, SMEs and the VINCI Group on innovations related to its business lines. The startups selected within the programme will benefit from a privileged partner to interact with VINCI entities from the initial contact to the contract.

With CATALYST, Leonard’s goal is to accelerate the opening of the VINCI Group to the best solutions brought today by innovative players in France and abroad. Launch scheduled for fall 2019.
