International acclaim for the start- up accelerator based in Nice!

The Allianz accelerator in Nice confirms its positioning as a key influence in the development of the French start-up ecosystem.

In 2015, Allianz opened in Nice its start-up accelerator in Nice, as part of the French Tech Côte d’Azur Initiative. The Insurance Company decided to invest in an incubator for digital start-ups specialised in Big Data, with a mission of offering innovative services: automobile, home, connected city, customer experience or any other projects based on data enhancement.

Since it opened, the Allianz France incubator accelerated 25 start-ups which raised €35 million in a first post-acceleration call for funds and some of which already have subsequent calls underway.
