The first biomimicry fundraising report has just been released

More than 600 million euros have been raised by the first generation of French startups in the "Biomim Deeptech" sector, which draw their inspiration from the observation and analysis of living organisms (biomimicry) to develop breakthrough innovations. 

From research to market, biomimicry is becoming operational and is of increasing interest to investors, industrialists, public authorities and training organizations.

A new-generation camera inspired by the human retina that is energy-efficient and capable of better detecting movement (Prophesee - 127 million euros); Medical adhesives inspired by the adhesion systems of gastropods for suture-free suturing (Tissium, 121 million euros); Substitutes for pesticides by dispersing sexual pheromones to scramble messages (M2i, 100 million euros), the Top 3 alone show the potential and the astonishing sectoral diversity of applications!

This groundbreaking report profiles the Top 22 French bio-inspired startups, the history of financial transactions and the list of more than 100 investors and partners identified who are supporting what can be considered a new industry.

This report is also the starting point for the launch of Biomim'Invest, the collective gas pedal hub to better identify, evaluate and support the development of impactful bio-inspired innovations.

Methodology of the report: study carried out on the initiative of and by NewCorp Conseil, a strategy and innovation consulting firm, already at the origin of the creation of the Biomimexpo event, with its monitoring tool NewCorp Observer and by collecting financial information validated by the companies concerned. The result is an initial estimate - at least - of the market for fundraising for biomimetic startups over the last 10 years and will be completed and enriched regularly.
