30 million euros for Wynd

ismael-ould-wynd-2016Third year of existence and third fundraising for Wynd. The start-up launched by Ismaël Ould and Arthur Perticoz completed a funding round of 30 million euros in November with Orange Digital Ventures and Sodexo. The Parisian start-up is developing a cloud platform to digitize physical points of sale.

Before continuing its geographic expansion in Europe, the Middle East and the United States, the company wants above all to prioritize its customer development. To date, Wynd claims more than 5,000 points of sale linked to its cross-channel solution. The French start-up has to deal with several management offers in the cloud, like Salesforce or Oracle. However, Wynd believes that there isn’t a solution like his that can connect the store to sales natively.
