NUMA is a global innovation network committed to bringing growth and human capital to startups. Since 2000, NUMA has emerged as France’s leading innovation practice.

In addition to providing its startups with commensurate financial and educational resources, NUMA has created an environment prone to their success relying on an influential network of entrepreneurs, corporates and technical experts. Since launching its first program in Paris in 2011, NUMA has accelerated startups in four different countries (France, Russia, India, Morocco), and plans to deploy its model in 15 countries by 2019.

About the programme

NUMA, in partnership with mVenturesBcn, has created in Barcelona Europe’s first Growth acceleration programme, attracting each year 10 ambitious and talented startups to the city.

Helping startups grow their operations and reach KPIs eligible to an institutional round will be at the core of the 4-month programme. Entrepreneurs will be able to leverage the experiences of tier-one European mentors traveling to Barcelona to meet them and the knowledge of a dedicated team of experts in residence working with them on subjects ranging from strategy, roadmap phasing, distribution to operations’ design. The program’s content will largely center around growth and scaling of business functions, including workshops on growth marketing, sales methodology, recruitment and funding.
Leveraging NUMA’s operations in France, European partnering accelerators – namely Tetuan Valley (Madrid) and Beta-I (Lisbon) – NUMA’s presence in emerging countries and other international network of partners, NUMA Barcelona will particularly appeal to start-ups with previous operating history, business traction and looking to expand their business in Europe.

In exchange for the programme, NUMA Barcelona will take a 5% equity stake in all participating startups. To fund certain investments to be made during the programme and to facilitate their relocation to Barcelona, startups will receive 36.000€ by way of a convertible note.
