"The best of two worlds"

Orange Ventures offers the best of two worlds, coupling the independent and quick decision-making scheme of classic VCs with the access to the unique technological and commercial expertise of the Orange Group. We have reshaped our governance to invest swiftly, and we have thoroughly processed the way we unlock value with agility for the start-ups we invest in, thanks to Orange ecosystems. We are 200% dedicated to efficiently creating value for both our portfolio start-ups and Orange.

"Leveraging Orange group resources and strengths"

We believe we have assets to share beyond the investment act: through simple streams of support, tight collaboration with portfolio companies, and a full leverage on the Orange Group resources. We benefit from a dedicated team working with each startup post investment, and a commitment of the whole management company to adding value. We then find ways to best leverage our direct access to Orange’s vast ecosystems, technical expertise and customer reach in helping our portfolio achieve and exceed their goals

Value creation for portfolio startups

We believe each investor should focus on its key strengths, adapt to each portfolio company’s rhythm and priorities, and present a simple offer. With the ultimate objective of contributing to your growth, we’d like to highlight three key levers

Go to market/scaling

Reaching external customers is the fastest way to scale: starting discussions at the time of the investment and with your consent, we’ll work with you and the Orange Business Services team to define a joint Go to Market strategy

Orange as a customer

Having one of Orange’s business units or affiliate as a customer can be both a source of revenue and an important proof point for the ecosystem. Each time this is relevant, we’ll work with you to achieve this target

Access to experts

Connectivity, cloud, contactless payment, blockchain, IoT depending on your activity, we’ll leverage on the experts from the Orange Group and its network of partners to bring you focused support, on your request
