    NUMA [numa] (Paris, 2014) p.n. neologism made up by ‘numérique’ standing for digital and ‘humain’ standing for human.

    At NUMA, we consider digital innovation as a way to create economic and social value.

    Since the beginning, our model is made of two pillars: high performance and openness. We enable all types of entrepreneurs to collaborate. Start-up, corporates, SME’s, communities and public institutions, far from opposing one another, can grow together and become mutually beneficial. This is our belief.

    NUMA brings together under one umbrella synergetic activities: coworking, start-up acceleration, community outreach and open innovation programs.

    A tutor dedicated to your company helps you follow the acceleration process.
    A partner to your startup with whom is assigned a monthly basis complement progress meetings and help you find new growth opportunities.

    Formerly known as Silicon Sentier, NUMA’s story began with the opening of La Cantine, the 1st coworking space in France in 2008. And now prescence in Casablanca-Morocco; Bengaluru-India; Moscow-Russia; and now Mexico City- Mexico.

    Our story in Mexico began when Venture Institute - certified incubator by INADEM - founded by Federico Antoni and Fernando Lelo de Larrea, joined forces with french ecosystem accelerator NUMA to launch NUMA México. This joint-venture brings together Venture Institute’s 5 years expertise in the Mexican ecosystem (with 130 startups, MXN $266M raised, 1.2 M clients, and 85.4% active companies) with NUMA’s 15 years of experience in France and international markets (104 startups, €51 million raised in total ; 6 exits; 83% active).

    By expanding internationally, we ambition to share this vision of innovation as a vector for change throughout society. A society where innovation is above all an opportunity for collective growth, for building bridges between people, and (re)doing society.
