“New tech” is a broad term spanning everything from digital processes, to new organizations and agile working methods, to powerful ways of financing businesses such as venture capital and special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). The convergence of such factors is accelerating innovation and disrupting businesses at an unprecedented speed and scale, and leading increasing numbers of companies to use “new tech” as a strategic enabler to underpin their competitive positioning.
It is against this background that Natixis Corporate & Investment Banking created a dedicated Tech Hub in 2021 to serve the needs of tech-accelerated corporates, scale-ups, big tech companies and funds. The Tech Hub works with Natixis CIB’s business lines and with entities across Groupe BPCE to create tailored solutions for clients spanning M&A, capital structuring, equity and debt raising, and capital markets. It fosters new solutions for industry leaders who want to create a disproportionate competitive advantage with new tech-focused business models and innovative financing techniques.
