Earlier this week, we covered PKparis’ €1M seed round. Because of yesterday’s Ascension day, a public holiday in France, funding deals were all announced between Monday and Wednesday.

Among these investments into French startups, other small and early stage deals happened, with Bpifrance participating in most of them. Here are some of the most notable deals:

My Coach Football: This SaaS designed for professional and amateur soccer coaches, drawn the attention of ACG Management and Bpifrance, raising €2.6M.

Bnbsitter: The platform allowing property owners who rent their home to subcontract a caretaker service has raised €2.2M from Bpifrance, CapDécisif and various business Angels.

myElefant: Bpifrance and Odyssée Venture invested €1.5M in this solution allowing brands to communicate effectively on smartphones in a cross canal approach. They provide a SaaS to manage and analyse mobile messaging campaign including SMS and Push notifications.
