We at Hexa are thrilled to share that we've secured €20 million in funding to significantly increase our startup launch rate. Currently launching around six companies per year, this investment will accelerate our efforts, empowering even more entrepreneurs to create outstanding companies.

This funding isn't just about quantity; it's about diversity too. Building on our established presence in the future of work, web3, and fintech, this funding will enable us to branch into exciting new territories like AI, health, climate, education, proptech, agritech, and cybersecurity - and more. If you're passionate about pioneering in these areas with us, we'd love to hear from you.

To support our growth, we’re excited to announce that we’re moving in new offices in the heart of Paris, La Cristallerie, which will allow us to increase our operational capabilities and achieve our bold ambitions.

A massive thank you to all the entrepreneurs and family offices who believe in our vision and have invested in our journey 🤗

🚀 Boosting startup creation

In the past 12 years, we’ve launched over 40 companies, including standout successes like Front, Aircall, Spendesk, Swan, and Yousign. Together, these companies have reached a combined valuation of $4.5 billion and created over 2600 jobs.

With this latest €20 million funding, our first since 2016, we'll be able scale up significantly, increasing from an average of 4 startups per year to an ambitious 30 by 2030.

Our investors, are a mix of entrepreneurs and supportive family offices, they all share our vision for long-term, company building.

We're delighted to announce that this funding round includes investors who are not just backers but also part of the Hexa family. These entrepreneurs, having embarked on their own successful journeys with Hexa, are now eager to support the next wave of innovation. Among them are individuals like Luc Pallavidino of Yousign, Adrien Van Den Branden from Canyon, Paul Vidal of Collective, and Arnaud Schwartz of Marble.

🆕 Entering new verticals

Founded as eFounders in 2011, Hexa initially concentrated on B2B software in the 'future of work' sector. Since then, we've successfully diversified into fintech, web3 (with Florent Quinti) and kept our historic “future of work” expertise with eFounders now led by Matthieu Vaxelaire.

Now, we're on the cusp of exploring new sectors like healthtech and AI (coming very soon to you!) as well as other verticals such as climate, education, proptech, agritech, cybersecurity - and beyond.

We’re thus looking for Partners to join the Hexa adventure. We want to give the opportunity to talented individuals to bring all their ideas to life, launch multiple companies in parallel, and experience first-hand the power of the startup studio model. Whether it’s building companies in one of our existing vertical or launching your own, we’re on the look-out for Partners to scale Hexa further that we could have imagined ourselves.

🏠 La Cristallerie opens

To support these ambitious goals, we're excited to announce our move to La Cristallerie. More than just an office, this new space in Paris' 10th arrondissement is a vibrant entrepreneurship hub. It's designed to be a community space to bolster our scaling ambitions.

So if you’re in the neighbourhood and want to say hi, don’t be shy! Come in, grab a coffee and enjoy our new space.

For those wanting to join the very first public event at our new space, sign up to BuildBetter - we’ve got a dream line-up of Alexandre Louisy (CEO & Cofounder of Upflow) and Julia Neel Biz (CEO & Cofounder of Teale), they’ll be both speaking on the topic of resilience, mental health & the ups and downs of entrepreneurship.
