Capgemini Ventures

Innovation cannot happen in a vacuum. It needs energy and momentum.

It needs a thriving ecosystem that provides partnerships and investment initiatives for both large organizations and the brightest startups. Capgemini Ventures, part of our open innovation strategy, was conceived to do just that.

Capgemini Ventures aims at co-creating and delivering value with startups, clients, and tech partners. By making minority investments through the ISAI Cap Venture Fund and as a Limited Partner in VC funds, and by building a joint go-to-market with startups, we help foster new innovations, ideas, and solutions – and help our clients forge a new path forward.

                Expert in Innovation, Startup Ecosystem
                All along my professional career, I have been embracing a variety of domains and roles, both in the finance area or more recently in charge of a Capgemini business unit over 3 continents. Key drivers in this journey have been a mix of curiosity and strong commitment. Now in charge of Capgemini Ventures, I am delighted to extend this approach to the innovation playfield, and in particular to innovation stemming from the start-up ecosystem. In partnership with ISAI, Capgemini Ventures has launched mid-2019 an investment fund into the most promising B2B start-ups and scaleups, future leaders of the software industry (SaaS, IaaS, PaaS), and sustainable IT whose innovations, ideas, and solutions will most benefit our clients and their business. With an investment envelope of 90M€, ISAI Cap Venture will take minority tickets ranging from 1 to 5M€. This unique formula for a Corporate Investment fund combines the strengths of a recognized professional VC -ISAI- and Capgemini as a growth accelerator to start-ups in portfolio. No doubt Capgemini Ventures shall contribute to our Group innovation and market intelligence, as well as to support our strategic and growth agenda.
