« Supernova Invest understood very quickly the environmental dimension of our idea and how it could revolutionize a domain that was historically closed to innovation. They helped us to shift from technology to business by being a key player in the process. Their presence by our side validates the technical qualities of our project: since they have accompanied us, people no longer ask us ‘does your product work! ! »
« Contrary to many investment funds, oftentimes very finance-focused, Supernova Invest demonstrates strong involvement in the subjects at hand, a real ability to analyze technology and a very sharp knowledge of the environmental progress market in which we are evolving. Their advice is not simply financial and this is more than valuable, especially when questions and situations become complex »

In 2015 when we found ourselves in financial trouble, Supernova/CEA Investissement came to support us in record time, by choosing to highlight our value rather than our difficulties. This confidence and engagement is unique, invaluable and possible, simply because the team has a very thorough understanding of our technology and projects. Today, we are doing well: our stock-market value has jumped from 135 million to 2 billion euros, and we hire 150 people per year.»
