With initial investment capital of about 50 million euros for a period of three years, this new entity clearly reflects Safran's corporate strategy based on innovation and transformation.

Supporting the growth of agile, innovative companies

• Networked sensors and data analysis.
• Energy production, distribution, transmission and storage systems for aircraft and other vehicles.
• Solutions and technologies for identification and authentication of people and connected objects.

These new technologies will address the challenges facing the aerospace, defense and security industries.

Minority stakes
Safran Corporate Ventures will take minority stakes in especially innovative technology startups, alongside other venture capital firms, including corporate units. It will promote the signature of commercial or development agreements between the companies in its portfolio and Safran's own entities.
