The Precursor Success of Cap Création 5

The support journey for entrepreneurs by the Burgundy-Franche-Comté Region has its roots in a series of successes, the most recent of which, Cap Création 5, mobilized 18 million euros in favor of regional innovation. The closing of this cycle in December 2023 paved the way for even greater ambition.

This fund aims to raise 40 million euros, demonstrating a firm will to support innovative entrepreneurs in the territory.

An Alternative to Traditional Financing

Cap Création 6 positions itself as a credible alternative to traditional bank financing, often inaccessible to young companies. The goal is to increase startups’ equity, thus enhancing their attractiveness and financial solidity. With a contribution of 4 million euros, the Burgundy-Franche-Comté Region affirms its support for this fund, also encouraging banks, institutions, industrialists, and private investors to participate in this collective effort for the economic future of the territory.

Collaboration as a Lever for Success

The collaboration between the Burgundy-Franche-Comté Region and UI Investissement through Cap Création 6 is a boon for regional entrepreneurs, offering them the necessary means to innovate and develop in an increasingly competitive market. The launch of Cap Création 6 marks a turning point in the approach to supporting startups in Burgundy-Franche-Comté. By providing a robust financial framework and fostering strategic collaborations, this fund promises to be a key driver in the growth trajectory of innovative companies in the region.
