Why Klein Blue

      “For us, Klein Blue had very comprehensive data from the start. On the sourcing part, the ecosystem or the insights, we knew that Klein Blue's first steps had been made in our industry and that the perimeter of AG2R La Mondiale was well covered (E-health, Insurtech, Fintech, Intelligence artificial, Blockchain…)


     We then sensed a willingness on Klein Blue's part to co-construct with its customers. To listen to the needs, to improve and develop the platform."

The Klein Blue result

A SURM (Start Up Relationship Management) connected to the ecosystem

   “We manage our dealflows with Klein Blue's pipeline. Sure, there are other solutions, but the connection of the SURM to the rest of the Klein Blue platform allows us to go to a start-up file to see its comparables on the perimeter that we are looking at. Same goes for investments or benchmarks. It is important for the activities that we have, whether it is for innovation projects, sourcing solutions or qualifying opportunities.”

A benchmarking tool

   “What I like is going to a startup file and finding, thanks to its tags, comparables to benchmark. You can browse the comparables directly on the specific subject that you are dealing with but also on adjacent subjects thanks to the set of tags and groups in which you will find the startup."

Obtain a clear vision of ecosystems

    "Klein Blue allows us to get a clear vision of the horizon and to see the intensity of innovation on subjects that matter to us and on actors who they are linked to. So it makes our job easier and it saves us time in these searches."

The implementation of Klein Blue was an important step in the construction of our open innovation approach, allowing us to complete our tools while streamlining them.  This is a solid repository around which we have been able to consolidate and enrich our own knowledge management.
