iSource tracks innovation in 8 privileged fields

 

Sector criteria

Since the beginning, we have always focused our investments in the areas of Information and Communication Technologies and more specifically in:

– Corporate Software (business applications and software tools),
– Multimedia Technologies
– Software as a Service (SaaS),
– Telecommunication systems and services
– Internet,
– Embedded Systems
– Managed Services

Criteria for business maturity and potential

iSource invests in early stage companies (just created or up to 5 years of existence) or in companies who have undergone a new, radical, and creative strategy turnaround.
We privilege companies presenting high levels of technological excellence, good management qualities, as well as robust marketing strategies. Such companies offer high growth potential for leading positions on an ideally global market.

Investment amounts and procedures

Initial financing averages from 500 000 to 1.5 million euros in the first round and can reach up to 6 million euros in subsequent funding rounds. This investment becomes shareholder’s equity when financing company creation or growth. Our preference goes to limited liability companies.
We primarily invest in France and Western European countries. Geographical proximity between the portfolio company and our iSource team is the key to ensuring effective support.
