Mission Accomplished for the 7th OIR Financial Engineering Committee

Visuel COFI EN

The 7th edition of the Financial Engineering Committee (CoFI) of the Operations of Interest to the Region (OIR) program organized by the Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region and operated by risingSUD took place on 30 September, and it marked the first time the event was held using an online digital platform.

This key economic event brought together nearly 300 participants to address the challenges of recovery and resilience facing the region’s strategic sectors.

The event’s opening was devoted to the industrial revival and it was led by the president of risingSUD, Bernard KLEYNHOFF, who serves as a Regional Councilor and President of the Commission on Industry, Innovation, and New and Digital Technologies. Afterward, the plenary session provided a quick review of the last six CoFIs.

Throughout the morning, more than 240 public and private investors and financiers attended pitches from 18 project leaders. These pitches were organized among five workshops: Energies of Tomorrow, Tourism & Creative Industries, Natural Living, Industrial Renaissance & Smart Tech, and Innovative Therapies.

The 7th edition of CoFI also featured a new opportunity for companies: the “Enterprise Sequence.” Ten regional companies that have significant roles in their sectors were pre-selected by the Region Sud, Région Sud Investissement, and risingSUD, and were able to give pitches to an audience of approximately thirty potential financiers. This process gave these companies a genuine boost in their fundraising efforts.
