      OTONOHM

      “EuraTechnologies is known as the place to be, and I quickly discovered why this spot had earned such a reputation: it offers a wide-range of support concerning all aspects of business—not just tech. Early on, we learned the various pitfalls to avoid as a startup, primarily thanks to the many discussions that took place with other co-founders.”​

      WAYKONECT

      “In a matter of days, EuraTechnologies made it possible for us to meet key influencers at Groupe PSA, thanks to their partnership. Since then, we have been collaborating with the second leading European car manufacturer to help pave the way for the future of the connected vehicle. This was a major stepping stone for us in our project, as the partnership gave us the credibility we needed to bring early customers on board our solution.”​

      CO-SHOP

      “EuraTechnologies incubator empowered us to quickly take our project from concept to prototype thanks to their ongoing support via workshops and advice given to us by the various EuraTech coaches. They helped us to focus on the core issues for our business so that we could launch our project on the right foot. The program also was a factor in increasing our visibility and making great connections.”​

      GOTOO LILLE

      “The experience was beyond what I had hoped for. The incubation program fostered a healthy sense of competition between all the entrepreneurs, and we were armed with all the necessary tools to test, grow, and prove our project’s value.”​
