Venture capital

Make the most of your company's creative potential

Our CM-CIC Innovation (equity own funds) and CM-CIC Capital Privé (third-party investments) subsidiaries provide the financing that innovative companies need for their growth.

They have the full range of skills to deal with the growth issues facing companies operating in fast-growing and high-potential sectors like information technology, internet/e-commerce, telecoms, electronics, life sciences, new materials and cleantech.

They are familiar with the realities of business life and work closely with research centres. They buy into companies at different stages of their development (seed capital, start-up capital, growth capital etc.) and can adjust the level of investment as companies grow.

Our investment criteria

Our teams are strongly motivated to succeed, and they apply a selective, rigorous investment policy to projects, based on specific criteria:

  • experienced and committed management,
  • high technological barriers,
  • an innovative project capable of producing a creative step forward in technology,
  • potential for growth and international development.

Our specific approach and complementary skills

CM-CIC Innovation and CM-CIC Capital Privé can invest through FCPI innovation funds and, because of their complementary positions, can invest jointly in the same high tech companies even though they manage separate portfolios and are fully autonomous in their decision-making.

They provide investee companies with:

  • advice about managers' strategic choices, based on their extensive experience,
  • access to the full range of services provided by Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale,
  • assistance with future fund-raising transactions,
  • help with preparing an exit for investors with the best possible terms, either through entry of a new financial partner or through a strategic merger.
