Today, Parisian startup campus STATION F has released its coveted Future 40 list, highlighting the most promising companies housed under its roof. The 40 startups are hand-selected, based on metrics and/or major milestones, with this fifth edition being powered by cloud-based data storage and analytics service provider Snowflake.
Working with approximately 1,000 startups per year, Xavier Niel-founded STATION F heartily holds the title of the world’s largest startup campus. In so much, the Future 40 list represents the top 4 percent of the cohort.
“Future 40 has represented leading startups from day one. In 2022 we became a long-term partner and started investing in some of the companies, and we will continue to strengthen our commitment to leading companies on campus." — Marwan Elfitesse, Head of Startups Programs & Business Services at STATION F.
In order to retain focus on early-stage companies, in order to be considered in the four previous editions of the Future 40 list, companies could have raised not more than €1 million. Acknowledging the ever-shifting climate of investor appetite, or not, as well as making way for certain situations faced by deeptech outfits, this restriction has been lifted.
Previous companies named to STATION F’s Future 40 list include Interstellar Lab, Fintecture, DFNS, Sifflet, and Big Blue, and have attracted support from prestigious investors including Runa Capital, Accel Partners, HenQ, White Star Capital, Coinbase, EQT, RTP Global and others.
