As a low-carbon partner of VivaTech for the past 3 years, EDF is sponsoring the Impact Bridge, the brand new space showcasing startups committed to decarbonisation. EDF Pulse Ventures, the Group's corporate venture capital, has seized the opportunity to showcase 6 startups from its portfolio and from EDF's innovation ecosystem. Join us from 22 to 25 May 2024 to discover their innovative solutions.

As a leader in low-carbon electricity production, it was an obvious choice for EDF to sponsor Viva Technology's new "Impact Bridge" space, which aims to showcase innovative solutions for building a low-carbon world.

EDF Pulse Ventures seized this opportunity to give visibility to 4 startups from its portfolio (Exaion, Spotr, Sweetch Energy, Urbanomy) and 2 startups from the EDF innovation ecosystem (Fruggr and Value Park).

EDF Pulse Ventures, a strategic partner for startups

Since 2017, EDF Pulse Ventures has invested nearly €500 million in startups and venture capital funds, and has around 20 companies in its portfolio. As a corporate venture capital, it not only invests financially in startups but is also keen to help them build their profile and develop their business. 

This is why, once again this year, EDF Pulse Ventures has given some of the startups in its portfolio and in the EDF innovation ecosystem the opportunity to attend Viva Technology, Europe's biggest event dedicated to innovation and tech, alongside the EDF Group.

2 startup in which it invested in 2023 will be represented on the Impact Bridge:



Spotr has developed a SaaS B2B platform for automated building inspection. The startup collects and aggregates data of various types (imagery from satellites, aeroplanes, 3D models, text) and from a range of sources (open data, private, local). It uses artificial intelligence and machine learning models to deliver accurate building analysis to its customers.

Fruggr improves the environmental and social footprint of digital technology. Its application, Fruggr App, is designed for smartphones and enables users to obtain an environmental impact score for their digital activity. The app calculates an initial score for each user and then offers advice on how to reduce the impact of their activity and better control their footprint. This innovation won the 2022 EDF Pulse Start-up Award in the "decarbonising through digital" category.
