Our project was lucky enough to be rapidly hosted by amazing incubators, advised by the best mentors of the Parisian startup ecosystem, challenged by the greatest specialists in cybersecurity. We would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for them, so here they are, right where the belong: on the Team page!



GICAT’s Accelerator

In 2017, the GICAT launched "Generate", a programme helping french startups to understand and integrate the security and defense ecosystem. Olvid has the privilege of being part of this programme since March 2020.




Since October 2019, Olvid has joined the highly prized circle of start-ups selected to integrate platform58, the exclusive incubation program created in 2018 by La Banque Postale offering a tailor-made support to highly competitive and disruptive technological startups.



B2B Accelerator

Since September 2019, Olvid integrated the Shake’Up acceleration program, created by Wavestone to help their clients successfully carry out transformation and develop promising start-ups. Olvid is hosted in the heart of the firm’s teams and benefits from its consulting expertise and constant flow of contacts.



Public Aid

From 2017 to 2019, Olvid was hosted at Agoranov, an incubator founded by ENS, Paristech, Paris-Dauphine University, Sorbonne University, Inria and sponsored by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the Île de France region, the Paris City and the European Social Fund of the European Union.




Olvid joined Wilco, the largest start-up accelerator in Paris, in March 2019.
