We are looking for technology startups in any sector – software, media, robotics, commerce, transportation, etc. – as long as they embody the key attributes of l’esprit nantais: community, sustainability & culture.
We are also looking for "Entrepreneurs-in-residence": engineering, design & business generalists to work full-time with our startups or create new ones. Come with your own ideas and/or work on some of ours!
What makes Imagination Machine special? Our DNA combines the ambition and playbook of Silicon Valley with French style and values... in particular, the style and values embodied by the beautiful French city of Nantes.
Imagination Machine is led by Rob Spiro, a Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur. He founded Aardvark (acquired by Google), worked at Google as a product manager on Hangouts and Google+, then he founded a second startup, Good Eggs, and grew the company to tens of millions in revenue and hundreds of employees.
