As part of French Fintech Week, the Fintech for Tomorrow Challenge rewarded several innovative startups from the world of finance
This themed week, proposed by France FinTech, Paris&Co, the AMF, and the ACPR (Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution), promotes the dynamism of the global fintech ecosystem in France, in terms of sustainability.
For this sixth edition, the Institut de la Finance Durable has awarded prizes and “Coups de Cœur” to five committed projects from among the 58 participants. Here are their portraits.
EverSea, protecting and restoring the oceans
Launched just a few months ago by Loïc Pourchier, an expert in marine flora and fauna, the Marseille-based start-up EverSea has just won the “Graine” prize for its 100% commitment to protecting the oceans.
Still, in the ideation phase, the startup evaluates and helps find funding for projects with an impact on the marine environment, in order to combat climate change and the loss of biodiversity in the “blue lung of the planet”. EverSea also won the Coup de Cœur France Assureurs award.
ValueCo, the ESG criteria evaluation specialist
This SaaS software, founded by Mariem Mhadhbi in 2021 and now recognized as a company with a mission, specializes in the collection, analysis, and evaluation of ESG data, providing asset managers and investors with anonymized analyses.
This expertise has earned it the “Jeune Pousse” prize in this fintech competition. This a great opportunity for the startup, which has set itself an ambitious goal: “to objectify ESG and bring transparency and comparability by creating a market benchmark.”
Atekka, the new generation of agricultural insurance
Working hand in hand with agricultural professionals is the credo of this neo-insurance company founded in 2017 by Antoine Poupart. After several closed rounds of financing (2 M in 2017 and 4.9 M in 2022), Atekka continues to expand. Today, it deploys expertise that combines technical and technological innovation for tailor-made support as close as possible to real needs in the field. This year, Challenge Fintech for Tomorrow awarded Atekka the “Tree” Prize.
Two “Coups de Cœur” awarded
In addition to the three prizes awarded by the Institut de la Finance Durable, which provide the winners with financing and support solutions, EverSea and Altitude (the one-stop-shop that makes the best of AXA’s data on climate, carbon, and biodiversity available to private equity players) were awarded the Coups de Cœur by France Assureurs and Société Générale respectively. This symbolic award paves the way for future responsible fintech companies.
