The young companies supported by ACCELAIR develop innovative technologies in areas related to energy transition, industry 4.0, aeronautics, agri-food, green chemistry or health.
An offer adapted to their needs
ACCELAIR offer is adapted to the needs of each start-up, and includes access to individual and secure laboratories located on Air Liquide’s Campus Innovation Paris. ACCELAIR also allows start-ups to benefit from the expertise of Air Liquide and its partners to solve complex scientific, technical or industrial issues more rapidly.
Since 2020, ACCELAIR has supported around ten start-ups which have been able to accelerate their growth and raise more than 40 million euros.
An offer dedicated to deep-tech start-ups and companies
ACCELAIR supports start-ups that already completed their incubation phase and developed their first prototypes or will have to do so. They successfully raised money through a first financial round (seed, round A) and wish to accelerate their technological and pre-industrial development. ACCELAIR is also aimed at more mature start-ups or VSEs, SMEs and ETIs that are already marketing their solutions and wish to resume a new R&D phase to improve them.
What do all these companies have in common? They develop innovative technologies in areas related to energy and environmental transition, industry 4.0, aeronautics, agri-food, green chemistry or health in connection with the activities of the Air Liquide Group.
