BLUMORPHO’s story has begun in 2010. It has been supported by the European Commission through the COWIN project between 2010 and 2014, already led by the managing tandem: Géraldine Andrieux and Régis Hamelin. During this period, we have been working with a portfolio of orphan techs, creating €25 million euros of investment opportunities. The creation of BLUMORPHO is deeply part of this success story.
But before that, our team has spent 20 years working in innovation. After this experience in various fields, the BLUMORPHO team gathered up and shared their background. This diversity gives us a large technical landscape that goes from microelectronics to smart systems, with an entrepreneurial spirit, strong marketing skills, ecosystem management and an ability for the technical development.
We experienced challenges ourselves. We have been launching innovative technologies and creating new solutions when they were needed, even developed new markets. And no matter what kind of organization you are, we are completely committed to your success. Our team shows the highest respect for the ones who have made the choice to go for innovation. Whereas experiencing it for decades, we identified the necessity for a new player. And that is how BLUMORPHO was born.
After we have created BLUMORPHO, the trust of the European Commission has been rapidly followed by many leading research organizations, start-ups, large corporations and investors making BLUMORPHO a new player and key partner for deep tech. And this is because we gathered best practices and identified favorable conditions. We have thus defined our own practices and action to support the innovative process to become BLUMORPHO, the Agile Innovation Accelerator in deep tech, with Lean and Open innovation for DNA.
