Macron set a new target of creating 10 European tech giants

  • Warehouse robotics specialist Exotec raised funds at a $2 billion valuation, making it the 25th French startup to be valued at more than $1 billion.
  • The Croix, France-based startup’s announcement Monday means President Emmanuel Macron has met a goal he set in September 2019 of producing 25 unicorns three years early. 
  • In a Twitter video on the nation’s unicorns Macron set a new target of creating 10 European tech giants -- companies valued at more than 100 billion euros ($114 billion) -- by 2030. He said measures to achieve this would be announced in the coming weeks.

  • French fintech Qonto has raised 486 million euros in a funding round that valued the company at 4.4 billion euros ($5 billion).

The company will also boost its presence in Germany, Italy and Spain by investing 100 million euros in each of these over the next two years.
  • Prot said the company has just a fraction of the 25 million potential SME customers in its addressable market.

When $1 Billion Tech Unicorns Start to Look Like Ponies

  • In a world where every startup gallops, counting horns starts to look futile. France needs new metrics for a clearer innovation picture.
  • Like a lot of politicians, France’s Emmanuel Macron idolizes tech startups. They are seen to provide jobs, opportunity and entrepreneurship in a country needing all three, and they’re a benign counterweight to the establishment titans on the blue-chip CAC 40 stock index. 
  • Hence the online celebrations from Macron’s government this week as France added a 24th “unicorn” to its list of home-grown billion-dollar startups: Fintech firm Qonto was valued at $5.5 billion after raising funds. There’s been debate over whether France has 23, 24 or 25 unicorns; either way it’s highly likely that Macron will soon announce he’s hit his 2025 target of 25 unicorns about three years ahead of schedule.
  • For a supposedly mythical creature, startup unicorns are starting to look as common as everyday ponies. After all, what may be exciting for a country that had only four unicorns in 2018 barely registers at the global level: The U.S. boasts 644 unicorns, the U.K. 51 and Germany 33, according to data from analytics firm, which sees France as having 25. Whatever tide is lifting French boats is doing the same globally. There was a rapid 69% rise in startup valuations around the world last year, according to CBInsights, birthing 517 new unicorns for a total of 959.
