As a public company, Bpifrance has three business lines: support for innovation, guarantee of bank and equity investor financing, and partnership financing. Bpifrance has supported 6cure from the outset, notably through the National Competition for Innovative Technology Business Creation, which 6cure won in 2009 (“Emergence” Category) and 2010 (“Creation-Development” Category); more recently by granting it several innovation grants. Bpifrance supports 6cure in the development of its ambitious Research, Development and Innovation program and is therefore an important partner in the evolution of 6cure’s technologies and products. Bpifrance also promotes 6cure’s international development, thanks to a specific dedicated aid intended to promote export actions.
