Safran Corporate Ventures - Strategic investor in innovative startups active in Safran's business sectors.

Established in 2015, Safran Corporate Ventures is the Group's corporate venture capital arm. It funds startups that have developed breakthrough or disruptive technologies or business models which will help Safran to address the challenges of the aerospace, defense or security markets. This new entity clearly reflects Safran's corporate strategy based on innovation and transformation.


Innovation is the driving force behind Safran's success, so it's vital that such innovation is fed from outside the Group as well. Much of the innovation today is happening at smaller startup companies, not at major corporations like ours. That's why we created Safran Corporate Ventures — to connect Safran with the ecosystem of young innovation-rich companies in the aerospace, defense or security sectors. To do this, Safran Corporate Ventures will help fund some of these startups and enable them to benefit from Safran's expertise in its key technologies and markets.

Eric Dalbiès, President of Safran Corporate Ventures.
