We have stayed close to and been continuing to support entrepreneurs in this unprecedented situation. While working from home has become the new normal, we announced the final closing of our third Seed fund. The fund is dedicated to investing in companies that demonstrate that they will play a part in shaping a new world post Covid-19 and participating in the increased digitalization investments. These involve startups focusing on emerging trends in health, work, commerce, finance, mobility and computing.
And there's no end in sight to the innovation of our portfolio with companies creating new offers adapted to the current situation - see Amboss below - and other continuing to grow - see Getsafe and TerraPay.
We also wanted to update you about the caritative initiative we joined: the collective donation to provide meals for caregivers in French hospitals. The objective was to offer 40,000 meals. Well, thanks to the generosity of all, by May 11th, 100,000 meals had been given to 34 hospitals and nursing homes! A big thank you to all who participated.
Now, let's get you in the know!
