We have been keeping this big secret for some weeks, and now we’re so thrilled to finally be able to announce that we’ve been selected as one of the 40 most promising startups of STATION F campus among 1.000 companies 🚀.
Being hand-picked among so many cool and innovative startups is a big deal and I’m gonna tell you about our experience on it.
Station F is this enormous incubator campus - the biggest from Europe - based in Paris. Since 2019, Future 40 program is annually picking the 40 rising stars of the whole campus.
The selected ones come from multiple domains and the goal of the program is to highlight these 40 ambitious projects by offering a dedicated pitch training program and presenting them to investors.
On the demo day, this select group is revealed during an online presentation with a 2 minute pitch of each company.
First of all, you need to have your startup incubated in any program of Station F.
At this current edition, selected companies could not have raised more than 1 million euros and have strong metrics!
The application period starts around July and the whole process is made online. Your program manager shall announce the details of it but keep in mind that the jury is going to focus on your KPIs, tractions, roadmaps and the founders backgrounds.
Future 40 is open to a large variety of topics, so don’t worry if you are not working with crypto or metaverse and don't feel “trendy” 😅
For example, Notice is a no-code tool. We’re committed to empower the web with an editor that centralizes all your content in a single place.
Amazing tool to lift weight off your shoulders by creating, sharing and translating everything in the same app that automatically is going to update your changes in all your different platforms. Try our freemium option and let us know what you think about :)
One last tip: don’t hesitate to reach out to startups that participate in the last editions to now more about their experience on it. Also, it is a great way to understand if the program fits your needs and expectations.
Summarizing: solid changes of raising money. Fun fact: in the last 3 editions, companies have raised over €220 million to date 📈
After being selected, all companies go through a dedicated pitch training, not just about public speaking, but we are also oriented about the content and visual presentation of the pitch.
During the sessions, we had the opportunity to get to know each other better. Turns out it was a great moment to share experiences about all daily challenges a startup faces. We're all in the - almost - same ⛵/🛥️.
Once the workshops are done, it’s time to present the pitch to the camera - the Future 40 team is going to record you pitching for 2 minutes and this material is going to be presented online during the demo day - with exclusivity for selected investors and the press.
Besides the virtual environment, a dinner between founders and investors is proposed. Now it’s up to you… you don’t have many options besides going there and killing it 🔥 💪
