APIS DEVELOPPEMENT business incubator

pepThe APIS DEVELOPPEMENT business incubator occupies a strategic position at the centre of the Courtaboeuf Business Park in a fully renovated building with 73 modular offices.

Created at the initiative of the Villebon-sur-Yvette town council with the support of the Ile de France Regional Council and the Essonne General Council, APIS DEVELOPPEMENT is an economic development tool that provides offices, services and assistance to project leaders and companies in business for less than four years.

APIS DEVELOPPEMENT is managed in the form of an autonomous state-owned company under the Europ’Essonne urban area, and has a network of partners throughout the region to help entrepreneurs with start-up formalities and to assist them in their development.

APIS DEVELOPPEMENT has received the French standard label AFNOR NF X 50-770 for business incubators for the quality of services provided.
The results that APIS DEVELOPPEMENT has achieved are very reassuring for would-be entrepreneurs: 90% of companies hosted in the incubator are still in operation five years after they were created, and most of them move on to more permanent locations inside the Courtaboeuf Business Park.

With over 1000 companies and 25,000 employees, Courtaboeuf is an extraordinary source of technical and human skills within the System@tic and Medicen Paris Région competiveness clusters. The business park is also at the heart of the national interest urban planning project (Opération d’Intérêt National -OIN) that includes research centres and universities of the “Saclay Plateau”.
