Forbes unveiled its 2017 digital startup barometer, which has been compiled by Capgemini Consulting and ECap Partner since 2016. Its primary finding: last year, there were fewer funding rounds, but the amounts in play were larger. Shift Technology, GuestToGuest and Actility, all three in the top 10 largest funding rounds, were incubated by Paris&Co. In 2017, Paris&Co startups raised €200 million in total funding.
After a call for candidates that attracted several dozen applicants on a variety of themes, the first 23 startups selected to join the Swave fintech platform moved into their offices at La Défense on Monday, 29 January.
