Contentsquare: the French unicorn launches its incubator to boost innovative startups
The startup specializing in user experience optimization and analysis Contentsquare announces the launch of Atomic Labs, an incubator designed to accelerate the development of innovative companies. With an “Incubator” program for companies in the creation phase and an “Accelerator” program for those who already have a product, Atomic Labs aims to help “ entrepreneurs to realize their vision, develop their solution and accelerate their growth ”. The ecosystem is open to applications in France and is expected to expand to other countries in 2021.
Since its launch in 2012, Contentsquare has been collecting data on consumer behavior with the goal of helping brands understand how users interact with their platforms.
