COOPERATION – ANIMA and Provence Promotion work together to attract MENA start-ups to Provence | ANIMA Investment Network
Mar 18 2021
With the initiative THE NEXT SOCIETY, supported by the European Union, ANIMA has followed more than 150 start-ups in their development and internationalisation phase over the past 3 years. For its part, Provence Promotion, with its “Start in Provence” programme, helps innovative companies to find solutions for setting up in the Aix-Marseille area. This year, the two organisations have chosen to combine their skills in order to promote Provence and its entrepreneurial ecosystem, as well as the soft landing and peer learning tools offered by ANIMA. This partnership is based on the implementation of several actions to attract foreign start-ups with strong development potential to the region by offering them the opportunity to open up to new markets and benefit from shared expertise.
Through its Cross landing Mediterranean scheme, ANIMA will be able to subsidise short exploratory missions in Provence for entrepreneurs from 7 Mediterranean countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia). Provence Promotion, thanks to its knowledge of the ecosystems, will ensure contact with host structures and will be an operational guide to answer all real estate, financial and mobility questions related to a project to set up in Aix-Marseille-Provence.
