TWB identifies your needs, mobilises its teams of experts as well as scientists from the best public laboratories, and provides you with cutting-edge technological facilities for carrying out your R&D projects. Start-ups retain ownership of the outcome and benefit from exclusive, worldwide user rights.
By accessing platforms equipped with cutting-edge technology, start-ups can defer their initial investments in technological equipment that's vital for their development, and optimise their cash flow.
Start-ups based at TWB also benefit from shared laboratories and other facilities (meeting rooms, cafeteria and more), as well as private offices and laboratory.
R&D projects led by TWB are eligible for the CIR (R&D tax credit) and CICo (collaborative R&D tax credit), both measures that allow start-ups to recoup up to 50% of their R&D expenses.
Access to French investment networks: venture capital funds (Elaia, IRDI Capital Investissement & Sofinnova Partners) and public financers: Bpifrance, ADEME (French agency for the environment and energy management), ANR (French National Research Agency), etc.
Start-ups can access the MicroBio Tech (MBT) investment funds currently being created by Elaia, which will fund inventions in the field of microbiology as well as start-ups from the TWB ecosystem, from seed stage to series B funding.
Sofinnova Industrial Biotech II fund invest in young startups in the field of biotechnology to develop sustainable solutions in food, agriculture, chemistry and materials.
Start-ups based on TWB premises get scientific and technological guidance, administrative and logistical support, scientific and market entry advice, strategic and financial advice, and networking with TWB ecosystem.
Start-ups could get training from legal experts on questions of intellectual property, ownership of the outcome, data protection and invention protection.
