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.
Its dynamism enabled it to be ranked third French accelerator by the American analyst CB Insights in the third quarter of 2017. This ranking also puts it in first place among corporate accelerators and in the Provinces.
Well-earned international recognition for this accelerator of promising talent, based in the very heart of the Allianz Riviera Eco-Stadium!
