Our Story

Our story began at 2017 with the joint vision of our founding partners, Mr. Philippe Bouaziz, a notable international entrepreneur with +40 years in global business, software and finance; and, Mrs. Toot Shani, a global expert in acceleration and innovation, with major economic development projects behind her, spanned over +3,000 companies across 4 continents.

Their holistic approach brought together for the first time an entire growth ecosystem under one roof, forming a one-of-a-kind infrastructure accelerating innovation to the farthest peaks possible for Multinational Corporations, Venture Capital Investors and Startup Companies alike.

We believe in results, in relationships and in long-term partnership. Our community and ecosystem are an integral part of who we are and we cherish each and every individual and organization that takes an active part in our vision to provide a solid, performant home for technology, investments and innovation.
