UNITEC: Contributing to the success of start-ups

Unitec is one of the main start-up support structures in the Bordeaux area and Nouvelle-Aquitaine. Since its establishment, Unitec has been backed by the Bordeaux scientific and university community, the structure’s true DNA, supporting the creation of innovative companies for over 28 years and has thus contributed to the creation of more than 430 start-ups in the region.

With a team of 12 start-up managers and 20 hosting sites, Unitec advises you on three areas (digital, life sciences, engineering sciences).

 

Unitec guides you from the initial concept to the creation of the company (incubator), in its structuring and development (nursery) and in its strategic growth (accelerator).

Each start-up benefits from personalised support and a training program based on the progress of its project.

 

Since 1999, 78 projects supported by Unitec have won the national competition for the creation of innovative technology companies (I-Lab), organised by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. In 2017, Unitec supported 114 start-ups and achieved a business sustainability rate of 86% over five years.
