Selected among the 126 regional SME and ETI, Ananké won the iNov contest organised by ADEME.


This competition financed by the Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir (PIA) involves:

>> Three purposes:

  1. Support innovative projects led by start-up and SME
  2. Promote the emergence of leading companies in their field that can claim a global reach
  3. Accelerate the development and commercialization of innovative solutions and technologies

>> Three shareholders:

  1. The State
  2. The Burgundy Franche-Comté Region
  3. Bpifrance

This partnership definitively puts innovation at the heart of the regional economic development. The creation of sustainable and skilled jobs and the acceleration of business dynamics are crucial issues.


On June 28, Ananké headed up to Paris.

Its objective? Share its purpose and vision in order to convince the jury members.

The final decision will be announced a couple of weeks later: Ananké wins the contest!

This label allows the startup to benefit from €200K in subsidies and €100K in repayable advance.

A comfortable amount that rounds off the financing required for the development of the first eco-compressor and its installation, expected in 2020.

This award also unlocks the financial situation of the startup. A bank loan of €200K from Banque Populaire Burgundy FrancheComté and the €40K honorary loan from Réseau Entreprendre thus ensure the company’s financial stability.

The search for financing is a timeconsuming and crucial step in the development of a company. Step by step, Ananké gathers the necessary skills and resources for its progress.
