Leonard is certified “scouting partner for the French Tech Seed fund”.
The French Tech Seed Fund aims to leverage private investment in technology startups in early stages. Upon a first fundraising with a private investor, startups coming from a certified organisation, can be eligible to a French Tech Seed funding in convertible bonds (up to 2 euros for each euro raised). Each startup can receive up to 250 000 from this fund.
The SEED program helps you prepare your first fundraising thus increasing your possibility to leverage your funding with the French Tech Seed fund.
