YACHTNEEDS and MonacoTech

Home / News / YACHTNEEDS and MonacoTech

Created by the Monegasque State earlier this year, The MonacoTech Incubator & Accelerator Programs for startups under the direction of Fabrice Marquet, chose only 15 companies to be welcomed into the MonacoTech family. We are very happy to announce that YACHTNEEDS was chosen for this very exclusive and coveted opportunity.

What does this mean for the future of YachtNeeds? Let’s ask Tony Stout, founder of everyone’s favourite superyacht app!

What does MonacoTech do?

MonacoTech provide start-ups and small businesses with opportunities to network with other like-minded and useful businesses. MonacoTech’s main goal is to support the creation of innovative projects through a network, including business angels, venture capitalists, banks and other players, and to provide a dynamic ecosystem that benefits everyone.

How does this benefit YACHTNEEDS members?

Networking with other innovative and industry-changing companies will most definitely improve our future app updates and keep our tech fresh and creative. Plus, we will be having discussions about the superyacht industry with the other members of MonacoTech which in turn could bring further investment and expertise into our marketplace.

What was involved in the application and selection process?

We had been selected from more than 50 applicants from different countries and very diverse industries: from biotech to AI. We had to go through 3 different rounds of selections, then present our business plan in front of a jury, with whom we discussed our vision and the plan. It was a great privilege to have the opportunity to talk about our project with people like Frederic Genta, Industry head of Google France, and Nicholas Brunel, Investment Manager of the Group Arnault.

Tell us about the other companies involved?

It is a very diverse group of companies, we are now 20 teams, of which 17 companies are in the early stages of the start up life, and two (one of which is YACHTNEEDS) that are in the accelerating stage.

The other companies work in very diverse fields, from wealth management to medical, internet to veterinary. It is an amazing combination of international talents, with people from Canada, Israel, Germany and so on…..take a look at what they are all about…..
