At Factory, we are committed to bring together the brightest minds from all over the globe, companies from all possible stages and verticals. Today, we are very excited to announce our partnership with the Société Générale Group.
Founded by a group of entrepreneurs in 1864 to promote trade and industry in France, Société Générale has fully embraced its role of supporting their clients’ development. The company has preserved this heritage, at the same time integrating all the potential avenues offered by digital. Today, Société Générale is one of the leading financial service providers in Europe with 32 million clients, over 145 thousand team members, and a net turnover of €25.3 billion.
For Société Générale, it was a conscious decision to choose Berlin as the homebase for their innovation projects. They would like to benefit from the interactions with the local ecosystem, with special emphasis on fintech projects – and this exactly where Factory comes in.
A newly established team, based at Factory, will support the Group’s innovation projects by leveraging on Factory’s community and network. The new team will work for all of the Group’s business entities, which are already collaborating with some 20 German startups.
“For us, Factory is the perfect place to get access to these young companies and digital talents and to profit by our transversal approach for the entire Société Générale Group in Germany and abroad.” says Guido Zoeller, Group Country Head Germany and Austria at Société Générale.
We are proud to have a market leader on board as a partner and are excited for what we can accomplish together in the future.
