Our organization was created thanks to 4 founding members as well as our membership of the French Innovation Network RETIS, and its European partner EBN (European Business Network). Today, we are a Technopole with a major impact, both in our region and in national innovation networks! And our high quality of service and support has enabled us to renew our certification so that we can continue implementing this approach for the next 7 years.

The Technopole offers support to project leaders to help them formalize and secure their project prior to creation, through individualized coaching and a training cycle, as well as to companies wishing to develop all their dimensions (R&D, financial engineering, marketing, etc.). A full range of technical, legal and financial tools is offered to entrepreneurs through individual coaching, training, expert input and networking: project design, analysis of the project’s economic environment, drawing up a business plan, marketing plan, commercial offer, search for financing.
