VENTURE CAPITAL: SMART CITY
Our Venture Capital Smart City practice boasts 20 years of experience at Idinvest Partners supporting startups with hypergrowth potential. The Smart City space is composed of various verticals: Mobility, Logistics, Energy, Proptech, Connected Infrastructures and Industry 4.0. Our goal is to collaborate with the best entrepreneurs disrupting those sectors and creating the leading companies of tomorrow.
Our practice operates through one main investment fund - Idinvest Smart City I - targeting this space. This venture capital fund is supported by a large set of Tier 1 strategic and institutional players in Europe (EDF, PSA, Michelin, SNCF, Edison, Hager, Admiral, Bpifrance) and in Asia. Through this ecosystem, we have proven our capacity to accelerate the growth of our portfolio companies and help our investors find their way in a continuously moving startup ecosystem: new business models, technology disruptions, convergence between verticals in the smart city, local paradigms (Europe, Asia and the US).
We also foster the growth of our portfolio companies through a well-established global network of serial and successful entrepreneurs, access to a large network of strategic partners, top-tier investors and experts in our areas of investment.
