Success stories:

At the time, no company in the AI space had managed to obtain an FDA clearance. In July 2017, Cardiologs raised a €5.3m Series A round with Idinvest Partners, Isai and Partech as it became one of the first AI companies in the world to obtain an FDA clearance.

• Kactus is the go-to marketplace for B2B events. F3A invested in the seed round in December 2016. After an explosive growth phase, it raised a €5m Series A round with Idinvest Partners in July 2018. Today, it is on-track to becoming the leading B2B events marketplace.
