Are you looking for support, a methodology, contacts or advice on starting your own business? Is this future activity innovative? Does it have a direct or indirect link to the materials processing industries? We’d love to hear from you!

Un cube Axel

We have plenty of experience supporting businesses. We encourage the emergence, creation and development of innovative businesses by drawing on the strength of our team and appropriate tools on the one hand, and a network of diverse skills and the ability to mobilise the right external resources on the other.

After an initial review, we will offer you a personalised programme of support and advice, from the formalisation of your plan to start a business right up to the commercialisation of your products, process or innovative services.

Pre-incubation: are you ready to receive help starting a business?

The pre-incubation phase corresponds to a period of time, often quite short, when you hone your project and confirm whether more in-depth support (i.e., the next stage: incubation) is the right decision.

Incubation: flesh out your project

Our incubation programme “Un cube Axel” offers you specially designed support over several months to help you flesh out your project, from the feasibility study to the creation of your legal structure.

Here are some of the services provided:

  • hosting for up to 12 months at the EuraMaterials business incubator in Tourcoing (France), for project developers interested in this option
  • access to our network of materials processing industries
  • assessment of your proposed business by qualified experts
  • individual support in the technical, organisational, legal, financial, industrial, commercial and human resources (HR) fields
  • training courses adapted to the identified requirements
  • an events programme (webinars, workshops, meetings, trade fairs, etc.)
  • information about and introduction to industrial partners, managers, finance providers and scientists (mentoring and sponsorship)
  • logistical support for those interested in this option: a meeting room, audio and video-conferencing equipment, etc.
  • promotion and support in terms of communication for the most promising projects
  • the possibility of mobilising financial support from the Hauts-de-France region:
    • feasibility studies up to €15,000 (to receive funding, candidates have to present their project to the Comité Régional d’Incubation (regional incubation committee))
    • access (subject to conditions) to the regional grant arrangement for project developers
