Grenoble INP Entreprise, Grenoble Institute of Technology’s tech-transfer company, moved to offices at MINATEC (on the sixth floor of the Phelma 2 building) in early March. The new offices will provide more space and bring the company closer to industrial R&D projects at Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma. It will also be easier for the company to give its customers tours of MINATEC-based labs like CTT, IMEP-LaHC, and LMGP.
Grenoble INP Entreprise is a holding company that owns INPG Entreprise SA and Grenoble INP Invest. INPG Entreprise SA manages industrial R&D contracts and reported revenue of €7 million in 2015. The company also handles three to five European projects per year. Grenoble INP Invest is a venture capital firm that invests in spinoffs from Grenoble INP labs. The company currently holds stakes in around twenty companies, including Enerbee and Pulse Origin, which it co-founded.
