STATION F unveiled today the 2020 edition of Future 40, the 40 most promising companies on campus, during a full online demo day. The companies featured in the group have all been hand-picked among the 1.000 companies of STATION F, based on their growth, traction, first achievements and projects for the next months to ensure they are truly the rising stars.
“The Future 40 companies of this year are proof that startups are not only building gadgets, but that they are working to make our daily lives easier, whether it’s with productivity tools, green tech solutions, or projects to make the world more accessible”, said Marwan Elfitesse, Head of Startup Programs. “They are all young companies having raised less than €1M and you should keep an eye out for their progress in the coming months”.
This year, the Future 40 is composed of startups from 17 startup programs at STATION F including HEC, Founders Program, EDHEC, ICM, Les Ponts, Entrepreneur First, and more. 20% of the companies featured are founded by international entrepreneurs and 35% are female-founded. On average, they currently count 7 people in their teams and plan to grow to 12 people at the beginning of 2021.
The Future 40 companies have all benefited from a dedicated pitch training program and introductions with investors to ensure they can make the most of Future 40. Throughout the year, STATION F accompanies Future 40 companies to ensure they can bring their ambitious ideas to life in the best conditions possible.
Last year, companies like Stonly (redefining help content with interactive step-by-step) that raised 3.5M$, QantEv (optimizing provider networks for health insurers) that raised 1.5M€, or CryptoNext (providing quantum-safe cryptographic technologies for companies to protect their data) were part of the Future 40.
