2/... AND A GROWTH ACCELERATOR
On June 28, Ananké headed up to Paris.
Its objective? Share its purpose and vision in order to convince the jury members.
The final decision will be announced a couple of weeks later: Ananké wins the contest!
This label allows the start-up to benefit from €200K in subsidies and €100K in repayable advance.
A comfortable amount that rounds off the financing required for the development of the first eco-compressor and its installation, expected in 2020.
This award also unlocks the financial situation of the start-up. A bank loan of €200K from Banque Populaire Burgundy Franche-Comté and the €40K honorary loan from Réseau Entreprendre thus ensure the company's financial stability.
The search for financing is a time-consuming and crucial step in the development of a company. Step by step, Ananké gathers the necessary skills and resources for its progress.
