Defence and Security Innovation Accelerator

The defence and security sectors respond to specific codes and networks that can be complex to understand and penetrate.

Launched in March 2017, the GENERATE program enables French start-ups to understand and integrate the world of defence and security by providing them with tailor-made services and benefit from the GICAT network.

GENERATE is not an incubator but a start-up accelerator dedicated to defence and security issues in the broad sense. In this sense, this program goes beyond a simple operational support to bring also a strategic vision through the triptych:

  • Start-up accelerator for their strategy, visibility and business development
  • Creator of content and reflection through several regular publications
  • Facilitator of a network of innovation actors



What services for start-ups?

As close as possible to the needs of our start-ups, we regularly organise:

  • Thematic training sessions: financing, industrial cooperation, public procurement, economic intelligence, etc.
  • BtoB meetings with institutional actors, industrial or partner
  • Learning Expeditions in France and abroad
  • “France” pavilions on defence and/or security exhibitions for export
  • Spaces created in fairs in France
