The good news keeps pouring in for Impact’s alumni! Impact ‘16 participant AB Tasty announced a $17M Series B round this week led by Partech Ventures and Korelya Capital, while 2014 alumni Concord announced $3.7 million in additional funding to scale their marketing and sales organization.
This week also marks a tremendous milestone for Impact: our Alumni’s total post-program fundraising now amounts to more than $100M!
Since the first edition in 2014, 15 out of our 49 alumni have raised a round of funding in the U.S. or in Europe. Among them, the biggest rounds were raised by Mirakl, AB Tasty, SevenHugs, Akeneo, Famoco, the Cosmo Company, Sublime Skinz, TellMePlus or Giroptic. They were raised from top-tier VCs such as Alven Capital, Kima Ventures, ISAI, 360 Capital Partners, Partech Ventures, Aster Capital, Korelya Capital.
The Impact team in New York and San Francisco is very proud to have collaborated closely with these startups to reach this milestone, and wishes to congratulate all our alumni for their hard work and dedication before, during and after the program.

Why they succeeded: On top of cutting-edge technology and world-class teams, our alumni fully immersed themselves in the Impact program by developing their sales capabilities, creating deep partnerships and meeting expert mentors and VCs. Impact doesn’t end after the 10 weeks on-site; the program provides a solid foundation upon which to grow and scale by establishing the first commercial and partner relationships. This week’s news further bolsters our position as France’s most active accelerator, as recognized by CB Insights.
Impact 2017 has been charging ahead since April 17th, and this current batch certainly doesn’t want to miss out on the fun… Go Impact 2017, go!
The Impact team.
