NUMA s’installe au Maroc avec NUMA Casablanca

NUMA poursuit son internationalisation et pose un pied en Afrique du Nord : l’accélérateur français annonce l’ouverture de NUMA Casablanca en partenariat avec Eiréné 4 Impact.

2

En partenariat avec Eiréné 4 Impact, structure qui soutient l’innovation et l’entrepreneuriat au Maroc, NUMA annonce l’ouverture de NUMA Casablanca. Après la Russie (NUMA Moscou) et l’Inde (NUMA Bangalore), le Maroc est la troisième étape du tour du monde des écosystèmes émergents entamé par le catalyseur de l’innovation français et surtout une porte d’entrée sur le reste du continent africain.

NUMA s'installe au Maroc avec NUMA Casablanca

L’écosystème marocain de l’innovation est en pleine croissance. Stable politiquement, le pays est la deuxième place financière d’Afrique et a le meilleur taux de pénétration internet du continent. Le Maroc est un carrefour incontournable : avec une culture francophone, le renforcement de ses relations diplomatiques et économiques avec les pays de l’Afrique subsaharienne et la multiplication des investissements provenant des Etats-Unis et du monde arabe, le pays présente un profil en totale cohérence avec les objectifs d’internationalisation de NUMA. Enfin, les chiffres ne trompent pas, puisque les investissements en capital risque ont été multipliés par 10 entre 2013 et 2014 et le nombre de startups créées annuellement a quintuplé entre 2012 et 2015.

Pour les startups françaises et marocaines, NUMA Casablanca sera un pont entre les marchés européens et africains. Les candidatures pour le premier programme d’accélération NUMA Casablanca seront lancées en novembre 2015,et l’accélérateur ouvrira ses portes en janvier 2016.

“Notre ambition est d’accélérer la croissance de quinze écosystèmes émergents d’ici 2019. Dans ce cadre, l’Afrique est bien entendu l’une de nos cibles prioritaires : la moitié de la population à moins de 25 ans et a soif d’entreprendre. Nous sommes convaincus que les innovateurs de la prochaine décennie sont sur ce continent et nous avons pour objectif d’implanter NUMA dans 2 à 3 pays africains” affirme Frédéric Oru, Directeur Général en charge de l’international chez NUMA. “Au delà de la position stratégique idéale que représente le Maroc pour la France et l’Europe vis à vis de l’Afrique et du Moyen Orient, nous avons mesuré dans la capitale tous les signaux d’un point d’inflexion dans l’écosystème entrepreneurial : nombre de startups, investissements publics et privés, un vrai décollage s’amorce.”

Leyth Zniber, Fondateur et Président de la fondation Eiréné4Impact, en est la preuve incarnée. Il a abandonné la direction d’une grande entreprise pour devenir l’un des premiers business angel du pays et créer la première plateforme holistique d’accompagnement à l’entrepreneuriat et l’innovation à fort impact sociétal. “Avec lui, nous savons que NUMA Casablanca portera haut et fort nos valeurs d’ouverture et de performance” poursuit Frédéric Oru.

“Avec un potentiel exceptionnel d’innovation pour le continent de par des enjeux de développement partagés et la présence économique et diplomatique forte d’acteurs marocains sur le continent, le Maroc a le potentiel de devenir une plateforme idéale de développement et un vrai laboratoire de l’innovation. Pour ce faire il est important que notre écosystème accélère sa professionnalisation et sa dynamique d’innovation aussi bien avec les startups que les grands acteurs publics et privés” affirme Leyth Zniber.
“Aujourd’hui, avec NUMA, nous accélérons notre développement local et régional. Dans la continuité de l’action Eiréné4Impact, ce partenariat renforce la dynamique de professionnalisation de l’écosystème, nous permet d’élargir notre soutien à l’entrepreneuriat et aussi d’accélerer nos actions dans la promotion de l’innovation, notamment l’innovation ouverte des grands acteurs publics et privés marocains” poursuit Leyth Zniber. “L’expérience de NUMA nous permettra de renforcer les échanges nord-sud et faire du Maroc une plateforme de collaboration sud-sud pour l’ensemble de la sous-région. Enfin, cette double action permettra à Eiréné4Impact d’élargir son savoir-faire d’ici à 2017.”

18 mois après son ouverture, le succès de NUMA Paris ne se dément pas. 650 startups candidates à notre programme d’accélération, plus de 1500 évènements organisés, 80.000 visiteurs, près de la moitié du CAC40 clients de nos programmes de transformation numérique et d’open innovation. Sur les 72 startups accélérées depuis la création de notre programme d’accélération en 2011, 90% sont toujours en activité. Aujourd’hui, NUMA accélère son développement en ouvrant NUMA Moscow.

NUMA Moscow met à disposition des entrepreneurs un espace de 700m2 en plein quartier d’affaires moscovite, un réseau d’acteurs russes et français publics et privés, et une équipe trilingue de 7 personnes. Pour les startups françaises et européennes, NUMA Moscow sera une porte d’entrée vers un marché uni de 150 millions de consommateurs. Les candidatures seront lancées en juin 2015, et l’accélérateur ouvrira ses portes en septembre.

Yannick Tranchier, PDG de Ob’vious :

NUMA c’est le résultat de quinze ans d’expérience dans le domaine de l’innovation et de l’entrepreneuriat. J’ai créé mon activité en Russie il y a dix ans, je sais à quel point c’est difficile d’emmener tout un écosystème et de le faire mûrir. NUMA a démontré un savoir faire indéniable dans ce domaine, et l’apport de cette expertise en Russie est une grande opportunité : une marque forte et reconnue, des méthodologies éprouvées, un point d’entrée sur un réseau international.”

Frédéric Oru, DGA et responsable du développement international de NUMA :

“L’idée derrière NUMA Moscow est de créer un véritable pont entre les écosystèmes français et russes, en échangeant des startups, des mentors, en créant des équipes mixtes… Nous voulons fonder le premier accélérateur transnational. Pour y parvenir nous avions besoin de nous appuyer sur une partenaire local doté d’une base opérationnelle forte, d’un excellent réseau et d’une vraie proximité culturelle. Ob’vious s’est imposé comme une évidence… ”

An example of what you can get from SXSW

If you are positive, many unexpected things can happen
The first time I met Jean-François Chianetta, it was during the Job Fair #2.
He was there to present Augmentedev, a project of augmented reality applied to daily life. A few months later I found him at South by South west in the French by South West's team. He wrote for us his story at SXSW and showed us how everything is possible when you are positive!

If you are positive, many unexpected things can happen

The first time I met Jean-François Chianetta, it was during the Job Fair #2.

He was there to present Augmentedev, a project of augmented reality applied to daily life. A few months later I found him at South by South west in the French by South West’s team. He wrote for us his story at SXSW and showed us how everything is possible when you are positive!

“I couldn’t miss the opportunity to give him my 7 seconds pitch

The days pass quickly at South By (that’s how they call it here) and sometimes between two conferences, really cool things happen..

An example of what you can get from SXSW Saturday I was hanging out at the Startup in America Salon to get a feeling of what’s happening in the U.S. startup ecosystem. It’s a great place to meet startups, investors and all the other people involved in this thriving environment.

The big thing at this moment was the launch of Steve Blank‘s new book : “The Startup Owners Manual“. They were giving away copies of the book and even better, Steve Blank himself was there to sign them !

I couldn’t miss the opportunity to give him my 7 seconds pitch and demo (sometimes 30 seconds is just too much). As soon as he saw the first 3d model appears on the table he started to ask me a lot of questions on the business model, the size of the market and other metrics.
An example of what you can get from SXSW

5 minutes later I had a Skype call planed with this VC

When I was done explaining the nuts and bolts of the project, he stood up and scanned the room for his VC friends. When he asked me to follow him I was like : “Wow, now we’re really in The Social Network”.

As we couldn’t find them, he gave me their contact information and told me to get in touch on his behalf. I sent an email to one of them, 5 minutes later I had a Skype call planed with this VC.

That’s how effective business is done in the US. I don’t now yet what will come out of this meeting but without South By it would have been a lot harder to get this connection, who knows where it will end up. I leave that for my next article.”

On the road to SXSW

Chapter 1 : Washington DC
It's just over a week until one of the biggest geek gatherings of the year, South By Southwest Interactive, which kicks off in Austin, Texas on March 9.
We will be representing Le Camping, with a special stand in Exhibition Hall 4, Stand 1044, where you are free to come and ask for information if you're attending the festival as well.
We took this opportunity to visit innovative organizations like accelerators and co-working spaces on our way from Washington, before reaching Austin by car on Thursday.

Chapter 1 : Washington DC

It’s just over a week until one of the biggest geek gatherings of the year, South By Southwest Interactive, which kicks off in Austin, Texas on March 9.

We will be representing Le Camping, with a special stand in Exhibition Hall 4, Stand 1044, where you are free to come and ask for information if you’re attending the festival as well.

We took this opportunity to visit innovative organizations like accelerators and co-working spaces on our way from Washington, before reaching Austin by car on Thursday.

On the road to SXSW

A boom in innovation

Ten years ago, much of DC was dilapidated and run-down. The city’s reputation was one of crack and cocaine as much as it was of national politics and American power.

Today, a booming local economy has driven an exponential growth of gentrification and modernization of several areas. A young, educated and alternative population has begun taking over areas formerly notorious for crime and violence.

With this social shift has come a boom in innovation led by a young, inner-city middle class.

On the road to SXSW

GeekEasy, a new co-working space in DC

We began with Geekeasy, a co-working space created in September and located in the historic Manhattan Laundry building right off U Street, in Northwest Washington DC.

More and more young and alternative people are setting up here. There is something fresh and new in Washington, while the city remains an administrative capital with only 600 000 residents by night, but an influx of 2 milion people entering the city each day for work.

It’s funny to see that each city has its own startup specialization. The DC metro area counts 27% of its citizens as government employees. It’s the very center of federal administration, so it only seems natural that a large number of them deal with politics, non-profits and healthcare.

On the road to SXSW

A quiet and peaceful place

Geekeasy is offering the tech community 24/7 access to offices, fixed and virtual work spaces, a comfortable co-working lounge and room for events.

When we entered on a Saturday morning, one guy was there working on his startup, Linktank.

He told us about his project: Linktank is a free weekly roundup of Washington DC events from the nation’s top political, research, and advocacy institutions.

On the road to SXSWHe showed us a room with a recording studio, a room with a ping-pong table and even a darts game near the kitchen!

He explained us that Geekeasy and The Affinity Lab, another cool co-working space, are two new innovative spaces in the same district.

We decided to set up here for a couple of hours to work and it was comfy, with jazzy music and awesome antique sofas … Well, we felt at home!

Venture Geeks Investor Day

Thursday 14, 2 pm, Tel Aviv, I'm here! Moran Bar, Managing Partner at Venture Geeks, invited me to attend Israel's first accelerator's Graduation Day.

By Alice Zagury

Thursday 14, 2 pm, Tel Aviv, I’m here !

Venture Geeks Investor DayMoran Bar, Managing Partner at Venture Geeks, invited me to attend Israel’s first accelerator’s Graduation Day. The pitches take place in the IBM Auditorium, at Petach Tikvah.

As soon as I walk into the train that takes me to the city center, I’m struck by the energy of the city: it relies on its strong diversity. Young soldiers, boys and girls, Falasha, Ashkenazim, Russian and Muslim families are waiting for the train in an overcrowded station. The city seems too small for so much activity. New buildings are coming up everywhere, it is both fast-paced and relaxed as any Mediterranean city.

I find my hostel, the host is Moroccan : “Shalom Alice, your room is ready, first time in the country? You won’t want to leave it!”

After one hour in the bus filled with Orthodox grandfathers, I finally get to the IBM building. Moran is here to welcome all of her guests. She introduces me to David Moche, the American investor at Venture Geeks. As she opened the pitch session, Moran says, “We had a dream, he made it come true” referring to David Moche.

Right before this Investor Day, the large majority of the guests were at the Graduation Day of another acceleration program : the army’s E.I.S.P.

The Intelligence Unit of Tsahal, the army of Israel, is now considered one of the leading sources of Israeli innovation. Its former alumni gathered and created a foundation to support innovation, technology and entrepreneurship. Imagine the biggest brains of the army using their research for business.

“So today is a busy day for investors in Tel Aviv”, says Audrey Chocron, a French woman I met earlier at Le Camping, she’s now creating a new acelerator through the Gvahim association. The main mission is to assist qualified olim from around the world in realizing their professional aspirations in Israel and provide them with a strong social anchor for a successful aliyah.

From the eduction to the mentality, entrepreneurship runs the Israeli life, it feels like Israel is an incubator in itself. So when I speak with Avner Warner, in charge of the Economic Development of Tel Aviv Global City, I ask him what the main problems are they’re facing in Tel Aviv :

“I’m working on a long term mission to enhance the attractiveness of the city in terms of business. Tel Aviv is a great place for startups, we want the innovative people to understand that, and we need to work on international collaborations. The main problem remains in the market. You can’t target Israel, you have to reach out the world. Tel Aviv offers many opportunities to start a company.”

Daniel Bessis, working on the business relations between Israel and Paris through the Paris Regional Council who organized the exchange between Le Camping and Venture Geeks – explains to me how strong the links are between innovation and the government.

“More than 5% of the budget is dedicated to R&D, and it doesn’t even take into account the investment related to defense.”

“You’re fighting against the world”, says Moran, addressing her start-ups, right before they present their businesses in 7 minutes.

The room is full, the first start-up to pitch is ready, the atmosphere is very positive, I don’t feel any anxiety. Let’s go.

Venture Geeks Investor Day 6scanopens the show.

Described as the “World’s first automated protection suite against website hackers”, I’m impressed by the demo and the confidence of the 2 co-founders, it’s flawless.

Venture Geeks Investor DayLasso It “turns the web into your personalized and unbounded language learning experience”.

If it works, I can tell you they found the way to reconcile the web with foreign language teachers. You can learn efficiently through your day-to-day web surfing. Smart.

Venture Geeks Investor DayNogeno, “the ultimate platform enabling a turkey solution for musicians to manage, sell and share their music online with their known audience and with newly discovered fans”

It made me think of an innovative and good mix of Soundcloud, Myspace and Tumblr. One thousand artists are already registered on the platform.

Venture Geeks Investor DaySleeve, “the gamification of education”, adds gaming layers to their digital notebook for students.

Imagine, rather than taking notes during your philosophy lessons, you could already follow the notes taken by the best student of your class and win points while enhancing it… good, isn’t it? Well, that’s the kind of features Sleeve will provide.

Venture Geeks Investor DayVerdata is combining Foursquare location data with Groupon sales force to create the next generation shopping app. It’s definitely a hard business where many start-ups want to go.

Real and virtual worlds being connected to better shop or increase sales – depends on what side, user or retailer, you are. Zifiz… you should connect with this team!
I’ve been impressed by their maturity, there is no doubt, I was in the face of entrepreneurs. The event was really well prepared and I felt as if I was at the theater.

In terms of strategy, when it comes to explaining “the go-to market strategy”, they all target the U.S. “We have strong links with the North American market, political, cultural and economic. Plus, the acceleration models come from there, they understand what it is all about, and they are as pragmatic as we are, tarhless as we say in Hebrew, meaning direct and no blah blah” says Mike Berman, Director of Headline Media, PR and presentation mentor at Venture Geeks.

The teams didn’t say how much they needed to raise and no figures on the development strategy were given in their presentations.

“Figures? You know, it will change at this stage. The main goal was to introduce them to the investors and to start to build the relationship” says David Moche. I have to admit, this might be an interesting thing to do for the next Investor Day at Le Camping, figures might change, though less than the human brain behind a start-up.

Today made me want to work closer with Israel and especially with Venture Geeks.

They have experience, VC money and they need bigger markets. We have our own experiences and relationships, we work on reaching out to big markets and smart money. We definitely have many ideas and concrete experiences and projects to share.

“Toda Raba” to Daniel Bessis for making this happen and Moran Bar for her enthusiasm and warm welcome.

Lehitraot!
