Build teams for deeptech start-ups

One of the keys to the success of deeptech startups is to build a solid team capable of living the entrepreneurial adventure. The project starts in a laboratory with a team of researchers willing to promote their research work, it continues with the creation of a startup supported by a team of entrepreneurs. It is a metamorphosis that is not without risk.

On the strength of this observation, Linksium has developed a community of entrepreneurs looking for association opportunities: it is concretely a “breeding ground” of more than 1,800 candidates interested in some of the 135 projects or startups in the portfolio. This community is offered new association opportunities over time and in advance of future opportunities via an online platform, SHARE K. Monthly meetings are organized in parallel. For 4 years, Linksium has been industrializing its process of building and strengthening management teams: 40 teams have been formed.
