International innovation capital funds

Bpifrance invests into leading foreign innovation funds, especially pan-European and North American funds, with the objective of internationalizing the French innovation ecosystem.


These innovation funds may be early, mid- or late-stage venture capital funds. These funds provide additional financial resources to French high growth start-ups and contribute to the internationalization of French start-ups.
As part of Bpifrance’s investment, these funds are required to implement a specific organization to address the French market and to increase their investments in French start-ups.
