Inria Startup Studio allows ambitious projects to flourish
Inria has set up a pre-creation Startup Studio to encourage the emergence of entrepreneurial projects that mobilize concepts, know-how and technologies from digital sciences and research work. The aim of this Startup Studio is to provide an opportunity for project leaders to explore in a dedicated framework, designed for them and built on the two pillars of Inria's support for startup projects: financing and coaching.
Project leaders who are motivated by the desire to create a company based on their ideas and work, who are able to implement the technological elements themselves, and who are ready to commit themselves to the subject for one year on a full-time basis are eligible. The Startup Studio is both a program for project leaders and an organization spread over the nine Inria centers.
Since 2019, nearly 90 projects have been supported by the Startup Studio. Here are a few examples!
