Sorbonne University and Its Partners Launch the Quadrivium 1 Seed Fund

At the initiative of the UPMC Foundation, Sorbonne University members are endowed with the Quadrivium 1 seed funds in the amount of €60 million, of which they announced the first closing at €35.5 million managed by SEVENTURE Partners.

This fund is dedicated to seed innovative companies coming out of the University's laboratories and those of its partners. The first endowment was purchased by the French National Priming Fund (FNA) managed by Bpifranc on behalf of the French governement under the "Investing for the Future" program overseen by CGI and Natixis and by CNP insurance, AG2R -La Mondiale, and Malakoff Mederic Revital et Emploi. The arrangements put in place to manage the fund are based, firstly, on Quadrivium Ventures, a full subsidiary of Sorbonne University academic partner institutions, which will identify and validate the investment requests in these institutions from researchers presenting projects and, secondly, on SEVENTURE Partners, the asset management subsidiary of Natixis venture capital funds, which will manage the fund.
