Partner of the innovative ecosystem in France for more than 30 years, Microsoft France has been committed, in partnership with Inria at Station F, to stimulate the emergence of French champions of artificial intelligence within the Microsoft AI Factory.

Located at the heart of Station F, ActiveEon will therefore benefit from the Microsoft AI Factory acceleration program. This privileged support for start-ups includes support for Microsoft and Inria researchers, tutoring in tight groups, one-year hosting in the Microsoft space of Station F, advice on promoting and marketing their solutions... As true "scouts", these start-ups are at the heart of the community that Microsoft wants to develop around artificial intelligence to create as many synergies as possible in the AI community in France, in order to support the future leaders of this ecosystem.

Denis Caromel, ActiveEon CEO:

If you had to introduce your start-up in few words?

Activeeon automates and accelerates the development of artificial intelligence applications. The company offers a software for building artificial intelligence applications providing all creativity and customization needed to build these applications.  Activeeon enables application scalability to let data scientists access large compute power and govern execution in production with control of costs. 

Why Microsoft AI Factory?

Activeeon collaborates with Microsoft and Azure worldwide with joint customers, running application with up to 20000 cores, which is a considerable feat. Our entry at AI Factory will further strengthen this artificial intelligence collaboration.
