«IFPEN was a reliable partner from the fund-raising phase onwards, consolidating our project and lending our vision to investors. The support of their high-level experts has enabled us to challenge our software product and step up its R&D development phase. Today, known to IFPEN's R&D teams, Voxaya is now becoming a preferred partner for IFPEN's own developments in the fields of numerical analysis and artificial intelligence. »

« For its development and now its launch to market, our dredging robot has benefited from the credibility of the IFPEN brand in the eyes of institutions and potential partners.

«IFPEN’s support mechanism is particularly suited to start-ups launching an activity, with, by definition, a limited budget: we had access to technical resources and a network of economic and financial partners during our development, because IFPEN only takes payment once the innovation has been marketed.»

«From our point of view, working with IFPEN equated to outsourcing our R&D to a reliable and recognized partner, accessing a considerable database and collaborating with results-driven engineers. Concretely, our partnership on the evaluation of the technical performance of our “ethylene sensor” resulted in a comprehensive report, which enabled us to adopt a new and highly beneficial commercial approach to support our growth in this market.»

«IFPEN’s support was crucial to defining the aim of our R&D project, as well as its technical design and financing. Without IFPEN’s backing throughout, it is by no means certain that we would have embarked on such a project.»
