Global Markets Incubator, delivering positive impact for the financial industry

Societe Generale’s Global Markets Incubator opens an application phase dedicated to positive impact startups.

Since 2018, Global Markets Incubator has helped startups and entrepreneurs adapt and implement innovative solutions in capital markets, while strengthening its support to the Fintech ecosystem.

As a responsible bank and leader in sustainable finance, Societe Generale is committed to supporting the positive transformation of its clients. For its fifth edition, Global Markets Incubator intends to support the transformation of the financial industry and invites startups developing solutions that aim to deliver a positive impact to apply to join the incubator. The programme is under the sponsorship of Hacina Py, Societe Generale Chief Sustainability Office, and Isabelle Millat, Head of Sustainability for Global Markets.

The selected entrepreneurs will gain access to the bank's experts, from capital markets to financing and private banking, to help them take their solutions to the next level, while receiving exposure to Societe Generale group. Throughout the program, they will benefit from end-user feedback and advice to reach ready-to-implement solutions, as well as access to the bank’s wider industry network.

Societe Generale seeks to build strong partnerships with the selected startups to enable rapid progress and the deployment of innovative solutions adapted to the sustainability goals of its corporate, financial institution and private investor clients, as well as its own CSR ambitions.
