Omnes Capital supports Le Village by CA, the first dedicated co-working space for innovative new companies developed by the Crédit Agricole Group in partnership with large groups and medium-sized businesses.
Located on Rue de la Boétie in Paris, Le Village is intended to provide premises for around 100 start-ups and allow for the emergence of a dynamic ecosystem that creates value.
Le Village was designed as a place for sharing and creativity, structured around four main aims :
– to encourage the emergence of innovative projects and new talents ;
– to help new businesses to implement their solutions and achieve commercial success ;
– to promote, accelerate and disseminate innovation in all forms ;
– to support regional economic development.
These aims form an integral part of the goals pursued by Omnes, which has supported innovative new businesses for more than 15 years, primarily in the technology and healthcare sectors.
With over 80 business disposals including 14 IPOs, Omnes Capital is one of the key players in France in financing innovative SMEs.
Fabien Prévost, CEO of Omnes Capital, comments : “Supporting this initiative is a natural extension of what we do. We are happy to lend our expertise to Le Village and play a role in the development of new businesses and their projects.”
Michel de Lempdes, Managing Director at Omnes Capital, adds : “Thanks to the diversity of its staff and its skill set, the Venture Capital team benefits from solid expertise in the innovation sector, enabling it to identify and support promising start-ups. We are delighted to be using this experience to help Le Village. It is important to us to take concrete action: we play an active role in Le Village’s selection committees and in particular help to prepare selected projects for future fundraising.”
