Ascendance Flights Technologies

Jean-Christophe Lambert is the President of this Toulouse start-up created in 2018 with 3 other co-founders. With their team of 30 employees, Ascendance Flight is working on 2 innovations: STERNA, a hybrid electric propulsion technology and ATEA, a vertical take-off and landing aircraft, the prototype of which in progress in 2023 could be displayed at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

“Our ‘ATEA’ product will be a kind of ‘helicopter’. It will allow people to be transported (4 passengers + the pilot), like a taxi. But also a medical service, or surveillance. The whole of the aircraft was designed in compliance with the requirements of the EASA SC-VTOL regulations and their associated means of compliance on the vehicle side.

The future of mobility is vertical with cleaner aviation. ATEA eliminates CO2 emissions by up to 80% and also reduces noise by 4 over a long distance of up to 400 km and meets the operational requirements of air mobility providers. Ready for the energy transition, our modular architecture can be adapted to next-generation aircraft with a wide range of energy sources.”


Based in Suresnes, la start-up Caps co-founded by 29-year-old Paul Cassé started in a garage like any good self-respecting start-up. Since 2017, their idea has been to develop affordable and discreet drones to help decongest large French cities. They first designed drones for industrial logistics over short distances, to quickly move on to passenger transport.

“The Caps will be real single-seater cabins with a real more ergonomic design adapted to the business model of a single passenger. They will be able to land on sorts of bus stops provided for this purpose, which will initially be located in business centers.Then eventually, installed inside cities, they will transport their passengers.Each Caps will be permanently connected to a control center that can intervene at any time.

Cities in France and abroad are looking for solutions. Any customer can, via the Caps application, order their aircraft, like a taxi in fact! It will take us wherever we want in the city, at a maximum distance of 25 km, exactly like the journeys that we could make by metro with 100% electric technology and without CO2 emissions.”


habelo is a French company based in Clermont Ferrand. Its co-founder Quentin Lopez works to offer simple, sustainable and efficient mobility for everyday needs. Their role is to promote the use of electric bicycles, which allows, with their customers, to fight against noise and environmental pollution to improve the quality of life in our country. The Habelo team is also proud of its commitment to social inclusion, working in partnership with ADAPEI 63 (ESAT) to ensure the shipping and quality control of products, thus contributing to the professional integration of people with disabilities.

The universal and waterproof electrification kit will transform your bike into an electric bike in the simplest way in the world for a budget from 650 €, allowing you to ride up to 80 km at a speed of up to 25 km/h. App-connected Bluetooth controller allows accurate tracking of driving and motor range data.

Light, sober and elegant, there is necessarily a solution adapted to your vehicle, a bicycle, gargo bike, tricycle, quad or even a soapbox. The company is also part of a responsible approach, by offering repair and reconditioning services for its products: bicycles, batteries, electrical equipment.


After studying at Normal Sup, Jean-Philippe Mangeot, the creator of the start-up, became a teacher-researcher at ENSEM in Nancy. He then proposed to his students at the University of Lorraine the following question: “What is, for a fixed quantity of matter and energy, the optimal solution in terms of mobility?”. The answer is the capsule Urbanloop, an individual mode of transportation on rails. No unnecessary technology in these capsules, just the essentials.

Urbanloop is committed and puts its values ​​at the service of a greener and more responsible world. World record for the lowest energy consumption per kilometer for an autonomous vehicle on rails approved by Certifer on May 28, 2021 with 0.047 kWh/km. They don’t use a battery, but their capsule is powered by very low voltage electricity in the rails. The complementarity of its network of fixed rails and the use of AI for on-board guidance reduce the risk of accidents and facilitate accessibility to the quay, thanks to its greater precision.

Compact and individual, Urbanloop minimizes the energy required for movement. Electric transport, it does not pollute the city. Light, it consumes little and costs little! In 2024, Urbanloop will settle in Saint Quentin en Yvelines for a demonstration project, before a real implementation in Nancy in 2026.
