Since 2010, the French Competitiveness Clusters have been helping innovative companies strengthen their equity capital through a national label, the Innovative Company of the Clusters (EIP) label. In 2021, the French Competitiveness Clusters, within the French Association of Competitiveness Clusters, wanted to give a new impetus and strengthen their support to the search for private funding for the growth and internationalization of startups and innovative companies. This national labeling process enhances the scientific base and market potential of innovations developed in France by drawing on the combined expertise of technological and market experts from the public and private sectors.
Facilitating access to investors is the ambition of this label renamed "hi France".
Guatecs proposes a process of latex extraction from Guayule plants which mainly addresses glove manufacturers with good arguments in terms of mechanical performance and less allergenic. It is also worth noting, among other things, the interest of having a local production that consumes little water, with the use of agricultural meadows and the fight against deforestation linked to the production of Hevea: a combination of virtues to be exploited.
The label was issued by the POLYMERIS cluster, the VEGEPOLYS VALLEY cluster and coordinated by the AFPC.
