Appointed by Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, working as an economic growth contributor in close collaboration with Bpifrance, ARII offers the PACA Accelerator. This is a pilot accelerator program exclusively reserved for the most innovative mature companies to help enhance their development and performance and to create employment in the region.
Supplementary to business growth paths, the PACA Accelerator provides high growth business with:
- A six month acceleration program, including a tailor-made assistance to the CEO
- Two collective programs inherent to business promotion (on-balance sheet and off-balance sheet financing arrangements, listing on the stock exchange, external growth, internationalization and so on.)
- A thorough strategic assessment of the company complementing the acceleration
Concomitant with Bpifrance’s national SMEs accelerator, the PACA Accelerator leads the way to a new type of regional acceleration devoted to SMEs. It allows to activate the most booming growth levers with the best chances for success.
The pilot phase is implemented with an eight-company cohort batch.
The PACA Accelerator intends to improve and structure regional public supporting policy for very high-potential innovative mature companies testing new services devoted to “growth management” issues which are not available for the time being or not always opened to business in PACA.
