Start down & go up in 3D

La Cordée's mission is to support project leaders on their ascent to entrepreneurship


Investment at the launch of the project and mobilization of our partners to build up the capital you need.


24-months support focused on product development, autonomy in its management and commercial traction before acceleration.

The approach

Funding, teams, design and development of your digital product: our experience in the start-up's world has taught us that the first phase is the most complex to manage. Our mission is to share this experience with you to move forward together towards your autonomy and your capacity to accelerate.

Start-down & go up


First on the Rope

Our support and our capital investment intervene start from the creation of the structure, at the beggining of the project, to support the founders from the pioneering phase.


A board of experienced guides

Our investors are first and foremost entrepreneurs. We form a strategic board to put our investors's experience at the service of the product, human and financial strategy of the supported projects.


A strategy for the ascent

We are surrounded by partners specialized in the design and development of digital products. We develop with them the best strategy centered on user experience, continuous improvement, standardization and perrenity of technologies.


Autonomy to gain altitude

A company whose business model is based on a digital product or digital service needs to be supported to design and develop the first versions of its project. It must also very early think about the internalization of skills, because autonomy is the key to acceleration.

La Cordée's values

We put the values ​​​​of mountaineering in resonance with entrepreneurship: advancing gradually but at the best pace, not skipping stages, knowing how to adapt the itinerary, remaining light but very concentrated, and respecting the commitment represented by a roped party in terms of mutual trust. Finally we never forget that in the mountains, once you reach the top, you are halfway there.


No matter where we start, we want to reach the top with you


Meeting challenges together in trust and transparency


Sharing experience is the best way toward autonomy

Who are we?

The founders

La Cordée is a project led by people passionated with entrepreneurship, digital technology and, of course, with mountaineering.
