The NextStage AM Entrepreneur Club

Our Entrepreneurs meet 3 times a year

NextStage AM brings together its ecosystem of entrepreneurs and investors around a theme with the intervention of a prestigious entrepreneur.
Our teams thus have the opportunity to bring together different players with the aim of creating synergies within our ecosystem. Our major investors are also invited and can thus discuss with the managers of the portfolio companies about their activities, their challenges and their successes.

Our entrepreneurs speak out

Stéphane Rihouey, President of Soléo Services:

“The arrival of NextStage AM in our capital has enabled us not only to equip ourselves with the means to strengthen our territorial presence in France in order to be as close as possible to our customers and our sites; but also its operational and strategic support has helped us to structure ourselves to seize the opportunities of this growing market. Beyond this performance, we are very happy with the relationship of trust forged with NextStage AM, which has proven to be a partner in the sense of “entrepreneur-investor” committed to our side ”

Claire Fountaine, President of the Fountaine Pajot Group:

“Over the past 5 years, NextStage AM has supported us on strategic issues. Our collaboration has been rich in development, including in particular with the acquisition of Dufour Yachts or even with the acquisition of a stake in the world leader in the rental of pleasure boats, Dream Yacht Charter ”

David Creuzot and Lucie Beudet, founders of Konbini:

“We would like to thank NextStage AM who believed in and supported our vision of the media. It was not necessarily obvious 9 years ago. Today history has proven our approach right. Konbini is taking a new step in continuity, with new projects both in France and internationally. "

Olivier Laouchez, President of the TRACE Group:

“NextStage AM came at a key moment when we needed funding to launch the new TRACE Sport Stars channel, which today represents a third of TRACE's turnover. In addition to its financial support, the NextStage AM team, made up of Grégoire Sentilhes and Michael Strauss-Kahn, shared with us their experience and their strategic vision of the media and digital industry. She has supported us in our international growth by providing us with a wealth of extremely useful information, advice and contacts. ”

NextStage AM has sold its entire stake in the audiovisual group TRACE to Modern Times Group (MTG).

Michel Dardenne and Olivier Tridon, Groupe Vulcain:

"With the support of NextStage AM but also of financial investors MI3 SA and Cofir, the Vulcain group has not only achieved but exceeded the objectives that we had set for ourselves by succeeding in positioning itself in just four years as one of the French market leaders in fire safety with a turnover close to 60 million euros ”underlines Michel Dardenne, president of the Vulcain group.

In just four years and after the acquisition and integration of 22 companies, the Vulcain group has become the 4th largest French player in the market. NextStage AM has finalized the sale of the group to Sicli Holding (United Technologies Corporation group).
