About us

Minalogic, founded in 2005, is the digital technology cluster for France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. With offices in Grenoble, Lyon, and Saint-Etienne, Minalogic drives an ecosystem of 450 members that includes nearly 400 innovative companies from across the region that cover the entire digital technology value chain. Minalogic’s members also include universities, research organizations, local government, banks and investors to sustain a unique network dedicated to innovation in digital technologies.

Minalogic helps all of its stakeholders make business connections through targeted, qualified introductions and create opportunities to innovate and grow at the national, European, and international levels.

Delivered by an experienced team known for its professionalism, Minalogic offers services addressing two main needs:

  • Innovation: Minalogic provides project development assistance for both individual and multi-partner projects in the context of regional, national, or European financing programs.
  • Business:
    • Open innovation events like the annual “Minalogic Business Meetings” convention, provide opportunities for technology providers and buyers (from the public and private sectors) to meet and to connect.
    • The cluster also runs a large set of programs to support international business development.

Every year, Minalogic supports its members’ innovation and business strategies through more than 1,500 networking actions.

Since 2005, the cluster has certified and helped secure financing for 709 projects for a total of €932 million in government funding and a total R&D investment of more than €2.3 billion.
