After an intense selection process, we are thrilled to announce the startups that have been chosen to participate in Impact USA this year!
For its sixth edition, Impact USA, the acceleration program designed by Business France in partnership with Bpifrance, will welcome 8 startups for the second batch of 2018.
To take part in Impact USA is to take a giant leap in expanding your business in two of the most active tech ecosystems on the planet.
The startups may vary in their development stages and sectors of activity, but they all have a common objective: accomplish in 10 weeks in the US what would take them a year on their own. This aim is achieved by:
- Rapidly integrating US market codes
- Developing and refining their US market penetration strategy
- Initiating business deals with prospective customers and partners
- Raising funds
- Over the past four years, our team has accompanied fifty-nine promising tech companies. Here is a brief overview of our decorated track record:
- 82% of our alumni are now established in the U.S.
- Over $175M raised post-program
- Over 205 sales contracts signed with American companies thanks to Impact
For this Fall edition, the San Francisco campus and the New York City one will be hosting four startups. All our recruits are ready to take up the challenge!
The on-site portion of Impact USA will take place from October 8th through December 14th.The new recruits will benefit from a packed schedule which included meeting their coach and getting acquainted with the tools required to pitch and sell their companies. During the past weeks, our team worked closely with the entrepreneurs to define their U.S. market strategy and ensure they ramped up prior to their on-site arrival.
