HySiLabs was founded in 2015 thanks to a chance discovery at Aix-Marseille University’s laboratories. Since then, the start-up has already developed and deployed a fully functional prototype for stationary applications and has raised €2.6M on total revenue. Right now, HySiLabs is in the pre-industrialisation phase of the process, with a preliminary design proposal as the next milestone (2019). HySiLabs already won several prizes and participated in three incubators and accelerator programs, including Impulse, Paris&Co and InnoEnergy. Those programs exposed HySiLabs to several actors of the field, with the capability of advancing its business enormously, either directly or by putting HySiLabs in contact with others. This networking has been crucial at the beginning of the startup and is still profitable now. Finally the ongoing mentorship introduced new valuable perspectives that aided in improving the growth strategy of the startup. The rise and prospect of HySiLabs has gained them reputiable acclaim, including but not limited to : SME Instrument Phase 1, Big Booster (USA/France), French government National Grant (ILab), CleanTechOpenFrance (finalist), EDF Pulse PACA, New Energy Challenge, EDF Pulse (finalist), and RATPLovesStartUps (finalist).
