Founded last year, the CheckAndTake geolocation product search engine is changing gears. It receives 1.5 M Euros in its first round. It sees Orkos Capital, Jaïna Capital and individuals invest almost equally, for the occasion. The Parisian uses in particular the received envelope to sign the acquisition of Plyce, a fellow-member born in 2010, which proposes to its users discount coupons in points of sale close to where they are. It absorbs a group of whose its managers were shareholders, but also Jaïna Capital and Kima Ventures – both present since 2010 (cf No. 970) – as well as other private investors. CheckAndTake brings into its fold a group that works in collaboration with 65 French retail chains, such as Pimkie, L’Occitane en Provence, Gap or Celio, and which claims one million users. Through its applications, it provides information about the products available in 5,000 points of sale, operating under the Darty, Castorama and Boulanger brands. Its turnover remains confidential, as does the turnover of its recently acquired perimeter.

Competition is fierce in the market for Saas software for e-commerce. While Salesforce spent $2.8bn this summer to buy the web-to-store solutions publisher Demandware, it is now Proximis that is the talk of the town in a second round of €5m. The majority of the funds were raised from three new entrants: Entrepreneur Venture, M Capital Partners and Alsace Capital. The balance comes from the historical shareholders 3T Capital and Naxicap, which had already invested €1 million at the end of 2013. Created in 2008, Proximis has already drawn on this financial manna to strengthen its R&D teams, in view of the imminent release of its new solution for vendors – to date it employs around sixty people. It also finds here the means to finance its international expansion, which began at the end of last year. It is targeting the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States as a priority, and is currently considering opening local offices. Proximis posted revenues of €2.6 million for its 2015 financial year. By 2018, it aims to double the number of clients it serves. This figure has now reached 80 accounts, mainly in the retail sector.

After having collected 368 K Euros from business angels in March, Les Menus de Jenny is now endowed with 1.5 M Euros. For 1 M Euros, Entrepreneur Venture becomes the largest shareholder in the designer of frozen baby food, with 26% of the shares. The balance is contributed by Risk & Sérénité (265 K Euros), by business angels – including Gonzague de Blignières (100 K Euros), the head of Barclays PE in France – and by the industrialist who manufactures the dishes on a subcontracting basis, whose identity remains confidential. Launched in 2006 by Jenny Carenco – an ex-Bain & Company – the Versailles-based start-up owns the Les Menus Bébé brand. It markets its products on a proprietary e-commerce site, in cyber-markets and in supermarkets and hypermarkets – a channel it wants to develop. With four employees, it is aiming for 450 K Euros in revenues by the end of March 2010.

Vanina PAOLI-GAGIN provided the target consultancy for the fundraising of Immunrise Biocontrôle France in September 2019, which develops biocontrol solutions from algae, a natural marine bio-pesticide.
The bio-pesticides are derived from natural extracts or living organisms (microbes, plants, animals). They have many advantages: they are more environmentally friendly than synthetic pesticides and can be used in the context of sustainable or organic agriculture. The aim is to offer bio-control products that are as effective as synthetic pesticides in order to reduce their use in the long term.
“This is a great victory”, said lawyer Patrice Spinosi, who is defending 600 victims with Vanina Paoli Gagin, a member of the Venezuelan association Anauco. “It would be abnormal if these victims could not take legal action against the one who certified the products that were implanted in their bodies and which were obviously defective. “For the victims’ association PIPA, “the decision of the Court of Cassation gives hope to thousands of victims around the world”. “With this scathing disavowal of TÜV’s strategy, the French Supreme Court is paving the way for the world’s largest class action lawsuit. »

After having self-financed its growth since its creation in Paris in 2011, Temelio opens its capital to accelerate the marketing of its unified customer relationship management solutions. It is leading a €2M increase subscribed to more than 50% by Entrepreneur Venture – the balance being contributed by several business angels in the sector. The young Temelio intends to allocate this amount first of all to strengthen its teams. With around fifteen people currently working for it, it is looking to recruit ten employees with a commercial or technical profile in 2017. These reinforcements will be useful for prospecting customers abroad, in neighboring countries. Temelio already generates a small part of its revenues outside of France and plans to open its first foreign office this year. The young developer will also continue to expand its proprietary data tool. This platform facilitates media targeting, the personalization of websites and advertising messages and the measurement of the impact of digital campaigns.

Little Fashion Gallery, is an e-merchant dedicated to the world of children and youth, and has just completed its second round. Without revealing its size, it delivers 80% of its capital to the new entrant, Jaïna Capital, while the historical shareholder EPI (the holding company managed by Christopher Descours) does not bring its ecot. Founded in 2006 by Marie Soudré-Richard, the web-merchant recorded a turnover of 2 M Euros in 2011, 50% of which is generated outside France. Its two electronic concept stores, LittleFashionGallery.com and MediumFashionGallery.com, offer more than 200 brands of clothing, toys, books, small furniture and decorative objects. Based in Paris, where it employs ten people, the retailer wants to take advantage of its new resources to expand its communication, strengthen its marketing and develop its international presence, with a strong involvement of its new shareholder in the management of the company. Satisfied with its first majority experience with LentillesMoinsCheres.com – whose turnover has doubled since Jaïna Capital took control (see n° 1012) -, its new shareholder has indeed decided to change its investment strategy and to leverage more and more on the entrepreneurial experience of its managers.
