We supported them…

« My name is Nicolas, and I’m the co-founder of www.skillup.co, aB2b marketplace in professional training.
Being accepted as a WILCO candidate was a very enriching Experience for our whole team: a hyper-relevant challenge of our project, expert interventions on topics as varied as commercial organization, team building and management, or PR management, targeted networking with partner groups to test our concept. WILCO is also a 60,000-euro, interest-free loan on trust which we immediately applied to recruiting. And of course, WILCO has become a label, a strong recognition of a project’s quality, much appreciated because of the motivation for the Team and as a veritable proof of trust for third-party investors. Bravo to the entire WILCO team! »
Nicolas Mutschler, Funder of Skillup
« We are Philippe and Maxime Wagner, founders of Captain Contract, the first digital Legal Department dedicated to micro and SME. I believe we’ve taken part in every WILCO workshop and training course, because we needed to structure the strategy and team quickly, so that they would last. This gave us the opportunity to meet experts in the field who, beyond their role as trainers, became our first service providers or, more specifically, partners. In them, we’ve found the people we were missing to be able to make the right business decisions.
As for training, they are a beautiful synthesis of topics such as: IP, accounting, subsidies, certification, communication, finance, fund raising. And from a financial point of view, WILCO has also opened doors for us, since we received a 0%-rate, 60,000-euro loan on trust
We therefore retain a privileges connection with WILCO and its experts. Thanks to the whole team for your assistance and your support from the start! »
Philippe et Maxime Wagner, Founders, Captain Contract
« My name is Yassir Kazar CEO and co-founder of the startup, Yogosha, a Bug Bounty platform: We connect organizations with an international community of security researchers, so that the latter may trace back security faults for them. WILCO’s loan on trust allowed us to have the treasury needed to continue developing our platform. We also participated in a lot of workshops, events and contests organized by WILCO, who’ve shown themselves to be effective and allowed us to increase our visibility. Thanks to the entire WILCO team for everything they’ve done and continue to do to help us reach new heights. »
Yassir Kazar, Fondateur de Yogosha
On était un peu dubitatif au départ sur le modèle des accélérateurs. Puis on est rentré chez Wilco. Super modèle, très focus sur l’accélération commerciale et la création de valeur, un accompagnement de qualité et à toute heure. Wilco nous a aidé à passer un cap dans notre aventure et à multiplier notre CA par 10 depuis notre intégration !
Salim JERNITE, CEO de CLEVY
Wilco est sans aucun doute un des meilleurs programmes d’accélération que nous connaissons à Paris. Le niveau de l’accompagnement est très bon, même dans des domaines où nous ne sommes pas novices. Un coup de chapeau particulier à Jerome Traisnel, CEO de SlimPay, pour son excellent atelier sur les sales B2B.
Djamil KEMAL, Co-CEO de Goshaba
L’intégration d’Indexima à l’accélérateur Wilco (2017) s’est concrétisée par l’octroi d’un prêt ainsi qu’un accompagnement dans le cadre du programme Wilco Digital. De nombreux services ont été mis à disposition afin de faciliter les échanges, le développement au sein de l’écosystème business et de la communauté scientifique. L’accompagnement s’est également traduit par du coaching pour le bon développement de l’entreprise (business, juridique, RH).
Aujourd’hui, Indexima bénéficie du service Premium Wilco afin de soutenir sa croissance à l’international.
Nicholas KORCHIA, COO de Indexima
