NETVA 2018: 2 Inria start-ups selected!

Supported by the scientific and technological services of the French embassies to the US and Canada, the NETVA programme (New Technology Venture Accelerator) helps young French businesses to find their feet across the Atlantic by introducing them to the contacts and resources they need to penetrate the North American market.


In 2018, about 100  young innovative companies applied to the French national competition to participate in the NETVA program which offers a personalized support program in order to familiarize them with the North American markets.

Out of the 100 applications received, 18 start-ups were selected of which 2 “made in” Inria start-ups!

  • InSimo develops medical simulation software that allows surgeons to learn with virtual anatomy. Biomechanical modeling makes it possible to reproduce the realism of organs and interactions as in a real operation.
  • Ekinnox is a start-up whose mission is to democratize the quantified and visual analysis of walking rehabilitation by developing a simple, fast and accessible solution.

This fall they will each benefit from a one week immersion program respectively in San Francisco and Boston.

All the 2018 laureates participated in June to the NETVA one-day seminar organized around keynotes and panels about the deeptech startups’ development in France and the US.
