Optiflows wants to communicate connected objects to large accounts
THE FIGURE – 1.3 million euros : this is the sum that the French start-up has just raised Optiflows. The funds were provided by Investessor, – regional co-investment fund of the Ile-de-France Region (410,000 euros), Bpifrance (350,000 euros) as well as Noveo Group (100,000 euros).
BUSINESS – IoT *:Optiflows publishes a software platform called Surycat allowing communication between Internet systems, PLCs, connected objects, smartphone, to a third-party interface and between them. It promotes the world of connected objects in the workplace. Surycat is marketed on an indirect model, through telecommunications system integrators, IT service providers, software installers and publishers. The concept is reminiscent of that of Busit and Sigfox (which day all the same in another courtyard).
OBJECTIVES – Reach major accounts and internationally
“Optiflows relies on this financial support to continue its development with large accounts, internationally and in sectors such as health,hospitality management or industry… ”, specifies the company.
Optiflows was founded in 2011 by three entrepreneurs: Christophe Le Dantec, David Fermet and Ludovic Havel. The start-up will soon join the Altran accelerator. A second fundraising is planned during the current year.
