[Infographic] Who are the startups who applied to NUMA Paris’ 8th acceleration program?
After 3 months of selection process, and 648 applications received among which 23% were international, NUMA launches its 8th Acceleration Season and announces its new batch of 17 startups.
What are the profiles of the applicants and the finalists?
This infographic illustrates the new batch and the profile of all the applicants.
- Technical skills: 13% of the applying projects had no technical profile among their cofounders whereas only 6% of the selected candidates were in this position. Indeed, as teams must quickly implement their decisions to make the most of the program, a team that brings together all the necessary skills is a key to success.
- Alumni network and references: 59% of our new startups already knew one of NUMA Alumni. Indeed, at this point of the competition, good references and a strong commitment are a good way to get jury’s attention.
- Startups’ maturity: a clear majority of the projects from the new batch has more than 6 months of activity (74%). Indeed, our choice was focused on projects with greater maturity: a team already set up, a “minimum valuable product” and a “fit-to-market”.
We would like to thank all the projects who applied and hope our feedbacks and the overall process has been helpful to them.
Now, it’s time to accelerate.
