LBP AM and its subsidiaries Tocqueville Finance and La Financière de l’Echiquier (LFDE) announced yesterday evening the winners of the second, 2023 edition of their Trophées de l'Innovation at a ceremony held at the head offices of LBP AM and Tocqueville Finance, in the La Félicité Paris Sully-Morland environmental district. Three companies were recognised: ACHEEL was elected ‘Fintech of the Year’; namR was elected ‘Greentech of the Year’; and Braintale was awarded the Jury’s Special Prize.  

In accordance with its approach focused on innovation and sustainable development, LBP AM and its subsidiaries organise the Trophées de l’Innovation, in order to recognise and accompany innovative companies that are tomorrow’s potential unicorns and key players in the sustainable economy. 

The Trophées de l’Innovation are organised in partnership with Investance Partners, Finance Innovation, the Institut de la Finance Durable, Alpha FMC, B SMART, Microsoft and La Banque Postale’s platform58 incubator. This second edition was held under the auspices of Jean-Noël Barrot, France’s deputy minister in charge of the digital technology to the minister of the economy, finance and industrial and digital sovereignty, alongside a jury of 19 experts, chaired by Pierre Ernst, a member of the LBP AM Management Board. 

This year, almost 700 fintechs, greentechs and medtechs were contacted. Eighty of those were short-listed, and 12 finalists1  were auditioned by the jury. After in-depth deliberations, the jury chose three award-winners:
