The Region Sud has identified eight key sectors of activity in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region and has launched the OIR strategic sector program to give them competitive advantages and boost their innovation, growth, and job creation potential. An elected regional official and a business leader co-chair each of the eight strategic sector programs. They bring together public and private stakeholders who work together to identify and support high-impact companies and projects for the sector.
risingSUD plays a vital role in the strategic sector program and provides customized support to the selected companies and projects.
Our stratetic sector program has three objectives:
1/ Mobilize €2 billion in public-private investments
2/ Attract 500 foreign direct investment projects
3/ Create or maintain 80 000 jobs in the region

I am looking for financing
What is it?
Every year, risingSUD organizes two special financing committees on behalf of Region Sud. These comittees are meant to connect companies active in the region’s strategic sectors with both public and private investors (banks, business angels, foundations, investment funds) so they can move ahead with major projects or expansions.
These day long events are called “CoFIs” and they include:
- A "project" sequence where leaders from companies with major projects for the region’s strategic sectors make pitches to both local and national financial backers.
- A "business" sequence where representatives of regional companies in the process of raising funds present their business plans to private investors to convince them to invest.
Are you a project leader or a company manager raising funds for a major project or expansion? We help you to:
identify and leverage public and private financing
structure your project’s economic documentation
accelerate the closing of financing deals for your project
Are you a financer? The CoFIs are an opportunity to:
enjoy access to high-potential projects
receive insights into the companies and major projects that will shape the region’s strategic sectors
to participate in a collective engineering project uniting financial backers from the public and private sectors
