Start-ups from Var and Alpes-Maritimes focus on the environment

Robotics, Artificial Intelligence or Ecological Problems … Weight and young shoots founded in the Alps-Maritimes participate in the VivaTech exhibition. It is the largest trade fair in Europe dedicated to new technologies. With the help of the Provence-Alpes Cote d’Azur region, they emphasize the environment.

It is a tricolor CES that will end in Paris this weekend In Las Vegas, after a great digital mass in January, innovative technology professionals met in Port de Versailles this week. VivaTech 2022, which ends today, Saturday 18 June, has established itself as the largest European technology event At the top, 149 countries were represented.

The Provence-Alpes C ডিte d’Azur region was present, along with several start-ups in C ডিte d’Azur, who took the opportunity to inaugurate A regional platform designed to facilitate innovation: SudPlace.

For Cote d’Azur’s nuggets, VivaTech has become the missing event. A lever of growth necessary for their development.

For Valerie Tyersen, the creator and president of Green Score Capital, his company’s presence this Paris week sounded obvious.

“This is the second time we’ve participated in Viva Tech. We wanted to repeat that experience because it’s true that it’s an opportunity for us. Meet potential partners, to be close to large groups, but also to meet investors. It’s an event that will bring together these three commercial, financial and partnership partners. “ Explain the business manager.

The director of Green Score Capital spent three days with him Delegation from the region with 35 other invited companies.

“Southern ecosystems are coordinating for this event, and to support us as much as possible. We see that the region has real expertise because this is not the first time they have come to the show. For example, he hosted a meeting with Israeli funds who came to visit us specifically. There is also the Ministry of Environmental Change which has been passed, or the Arbois Méditerranée Environmental Technology Park which was also there … All ecosystems have connections for this phenomenonWhether it is government authority or accelerator, and French Tech Toulon and Ax-Marseille.List of Valerie Tearsen.

I think our public actors really understand the importance of helping us, the private sector. It also promotes region, talent, skills, it helps to attract young people in our sector.

Cote d’Azur’s start-ups do not compare to the more prestigious French technological forts like Grenoble or Paris. Their establishment will become almost an asset, especially when it comes to recruitment.

“There A desire on the part of new talents to restore some money and quality of life. We’re about ten and we’re being hired! ” Toulonnaise Valerie Tiersen delighted.

Celia Paris, head of communications for the company that creates the Nice app Bodyguard, which fights hateful content, agrees: “We are in Paris, Marseille and mainly Nice where there are 30 people out of 45 workers. We have evacuated people from their respective areas, or people who were thinking of settling in the south. Nuggets are hard to understandBut it is enough that they discover our common interest goal and we start a start-up with a social impact so that in general it matches the level of values, andWe manage to conquer different talents with absolutely crazy profiles

Emanuel Kurinier, president of F-Reg, experienced his first Vivatech this year: “We were not Descending Not at the usual opportunity because we are not at all the solution from B to C (a market for the general public, editor’s note). We are in a particular case, our main customers are network operators, such as Veolia or Suez, and we have seen several innovation managers in this large group, they are big customers for us.

The company, which has 13 employees, was able to make new contacts and negotiate with entrepreneurs in C ডিte d’Azur: It was really strong because we saw so much innovation around us. We were in the South Region Pavilion which was Green Tech Oriented. We’ve been able to exchange views and see the dynamics in the region. “

Founded in 2014, F-Reg has patented a valve system that allows control of flowing water specifically to limit flooding. It has an annual turnover of around one million euros and works with a company called Carros, a laser cutting specialist, to manufacture the equipment.

Green Score Capital also offers its services in this environmental field. This powerful axis, displayed by the Southern Region Pavilion, echoes the authorities’ growing interest in innovative technologies in ecology. Clearly, we see an increase in strength from the actors who are really concerned about the situation And those who want to implement the solution. Our ambition is to be a leader in environmental assessment. ” Says Valerie Tearsen. His company, which has sealed a deal with CNES, benefited from the show’s showcase to promote its innovations in the fight against biodiversity.

“Our clients work in France and internationally. Everybody talks about the carbon footprint today, but that’s a very small part of the impact. The real issue is biodiversity. There are five pressures on biodiversity, climate change being just one of these five pressures. We are going to offer this global perspective on environmental impact to make the right decisions and meet future regulatory constraints. We have a solution that responds to these challenges and provides an holistic vision. ” She is detailed

The health of the digital environment was also at the center of the discussion. The bodyguard application made in Nice had its own dedicated stand this Friday, June 17th. The company that already knows CES has adopted the VivaTech app to introduce new solutions and create new links.

“The goal is for us Highlight our moderation solution, Really from B to B, where before, especially at CES in Las Vegas, we launched our mobile application in 2021. Our interest with VivaTech is to present our solutions for media players, be it gaming or sports. The goal is to be able to explain to companies what we can do Protect them and their communities from toxic materials.Celia Paris explained.

This is an opportunity to build relationships with existing partners, because we already have a good thirty clients and above all to meet potential clients. We’re talking to a lot of people, and of course it’s always good to be able to meet them physically.

Above all, VivaTech is an opportunity to see the latest innovations and face a little foresight: “We’re in an entertainment ecosystem with all the start-ups that revolve around Metavers and Web 3, into which we integrate ourselves, because the social networks we want to protect today are the ones we must go to tomorrow.”

But above all, VivaTech has an open window and a new horizon for the international scene: “To make sure we’re in a kind of technical sprintn In addition to text moderation, we can also moderate audio, video, and images, as long as the metaverse is consistent.. The goal here is to move further towards spam, scams সব everything that hinders communication on the Internet. This year, we will not be satisfied with VivaTech and we will go to others because the goal is to develop internationally. ”

A dynamic that makes good sense, especially in light of recent statements by the President Emanuel Macron, present at the Palace Expo this Friday, June 17, who wants to see France reach 100 tricolor unicorns by 2030 – or companies whose valuation exceeds one billion euros.
