This investment gives Stéphan Crétier a seat on the board of directors, allowing him to play a role in the future progress of the company.

The three young founders of Vosker – Yan Gagnon, 40, and twin brothers Danny and Jimmy Angers, aged 30 – have so far held 100% of the shares.

It was not possible to know the valuation that this investment gives to Vosker and the management is content to say that Stéphan Crétier obtains a minority stake.

“He brings us a new wealth of knowledge and experience in the security industry. It will help us to go all over the world by accelerating our growth. He will guide us, advise us, and connect us to the right people,” says Danny Angers, co-founder, executive vice-president and chief growth officer.

Danny Angers recounts that the leaders of Vosker were able to meet Stéphan Crétier for the first time last March after discussions with various people led “one thing to another” to an appointment.

Stéphan Crétier was not available for an interview. His colleague Isabelle Panelli, from the management office at GardaWorld, however told The Press that Stéphan Crétier was “very happy to invest in Vosker, which is booming and managed by a dynamic and motivated team”.

The founders of Vosker: Jimmy Angers, Yan Gagnon and Danny Angers.

The turnover of Vosker, which was created in 2018, should reach more than 150 million this year. Danny Angers indicates that the pandemic has “complicated” activities due to the scarcity of materials – electronic parts in particular – used to manufacture surveillance cameras.

Danny Angers explains that the money injected by Stephan Crétier will help Vosker secure parts in advance so that it can obtain them before the competition, which will allow it to respond more quickly to consumer demand.

Stéphan Crétier’s investment also comes at an important time due to the seasonal nature of the products. “It is between July and December that we sell the most products. We therefore have to finance this production in February and March,” says Danny Angers.

He adds that the founders had not yet had to dilute the shareholding because Vosker generates growing margins.

Our recurring revenue margins are now around 75% and are expected to increase significantly.

Danny Angers, Co-Founder, Executive Vice President and Chief Growth Officer of Vosker

Between 80% and 85% of revenues currently come from the United States, 10% from the rest of the world (mainly from Europe) and 5% from Canada.

To accelerate its growth, Vosker would like to take advantage of the fragmentation of the market to make acquisitions.

“We have identified 500 companies in Canada, the United States and Europe that are potential targets that could allow us to significantly increase our recurring revenues. [abonnements mensuels à la plateforme] and we have very serious discussions with about twenty of them and a transaction could be carried out this year”, says Danny Angers.

Remote monitoring

Vosker has approximately 380 employees, all in Quebec. The company has offices in Victoriaville, Brossard and Montreal. Management does not want to reveal the number of users of its products, but there are hundreds of thousands, says Danny Angers.

Vosker cameras are used to monitor construction sites, farms, wildlife for hunters, cabins, boats at the marina, vineyards, etc.

Vosker products, remote monitoring platform

Originally, the idea of ​​the founders was to provide surveillance cameras for places in remote areas where there is no electricity. They started by selling battery-operated cameras whose technology allowed them to detect movements and to be activated only during an event. Then, we are told, customers started asking for remote viewing, but the data transfer was a problem and that’s when the destiny of the company changed and management wanted to aspire to become a surveillance connectivity giant by developing a technology platform.

The platform notably applies filters to notifications and images to be sent to users according to their needs. The design is made in Quebec. The cameras are assembled in Asia.

Stéphan Crétier’s investment comes as Vosker announced last month that it had secured $100 million in financing (debt, credit, etc.) from HSBC, Caisse de depot et placement du Québec, Export Development Canada and the Business Development Bank of Canada.

“Our economic engine is our employees. They ensure that the dream becomes reality and that the machine advances at that speed,” says Danny Angers.

The highly reputed Couseran ice cream maker has just sold its business to Compagnie des desserts. However, he still remains in the group he created.

“In my fifties, I had decided to take off the company manager’s jacket, so I decided to sell it to the Compagnie des desserts”, smiles Philippe Faur. The Couserans ice cream maker is a bit moved when he talks about this subject. “It’s a bit like my baby. I classify this event at the same level as my marriage or the births of my daughters. I created this company 25 years ago, in 1998”, he says proudly looking at his work. Philippe Faur wants to go back to basics, those of an artisan ice cream maker, researcher of new products. However, the renowned glacier wants to be formal about his new role: “Nothing is going to change. The only difference is that I will only take care of the product. But the company will expand with new employees,” he says.

Philippe Faur will continue his creations
DDM – L.C.

Indeed, the buyer of the ice cream company with a turnover of 21 million euros is none other than the Compagnie des desserts. “It’s a company with the same values ​​as me. She wants to highlight short circuits, the use of natural ingredients, the use of cutting-edge formulations intended for a public attentive to nutrition as much as to the purity of flavors”, slips the Couserannais. As a result, the two shops, that of Toulouse and Caumont, will now belong to this dessert manufacturer.

A unique project in France

If Philippe Faur sells his company it is also to create an exceptional place, never seen in France. Passionate about history and a seasoned collector, he decided to put “the city of ice” on the baptismal font in Martres-Tolosane. “I would like to do a museum part with all the objects that I have collected. I try to get as many as possible. This project should see the light of day in the spring of 2023.”

But that’s not all, the master ice cream maker wants to go further by making customers work on the five senses. “There is a desire for transmission. One of my values ​​is eating well. When people come out of the city, I want them to understand why they buy poor quality products rather than good ones”, he analyzes.
Another planned activity, but only for his collaborators and himself, is the creation of a research and development laboratory. The glacier intends to develop new flavors in the city of ice cream.
Long live 2023.

Total business creations for the whole of 2021 amounted to 995,868, INSEE said on Friday. This figure marks a 17.4% increase from 2020 and a new all-time high. The previous record was from 2020. At the time, in the midst of a health crisis, nearly 850,000 companies had emerged.

While the 2021 figures are encouraging, the momentum will still need to be confirmed over the coming months. Because, reminds INSEE, the sharp increase observed is largely due to a catch-up effect compared to the particularly low level of creations during the first confinement in 2020.

All forms of business creation concerned

In fact, if 2020 had been marked by an increase in the number of creations, this had only been 4%. Far from the 18% of 2019 and the 17% of 2018. It is not yet time to say whether the increase observed last year is only a catch-up effect or whether the trend of the years preceding the health crisis is once again becoming the standard. This, while the last quarter of 2021 was marked by a drop in the number of creations on an annual basis.

All forms of business creation progressed during the year which has just ended. The palm goes to the creation of companies, which show an increase of 24%, to reach 270,958 new companies. A comeback since in 2020, they had remained stable.

Microenterprises, still very much in the majority in creations

This is followed by microenterprises created by autoentrepreneurs. They show an increase of 17%, i.e. an acceleration compared to 9% in 2020. In absolute value, they continue to attract candidates for entrepreneurship: no less than 641,543 created last year, i.e. nearly two creations out of three, says INSEE.

The red lantern goes to classic sole proprietorships, which only increased by 1.7% (83,367 creations). After, it is true, a particularly dark year 2020 which had seen the number of creations plunge by almost 13%.

Dynamism of financial activities

By sector, in 2021, the creations that have increased the most are those of companies with financial and insurance activities (+30.6%). But they are closely followed by household service companies, which posted a 30% increase.

On the third step of the podium are information and communication companies (+25.4%), closely followed by transport and warehousing companies (+24.9%). This last category notably includes home deliveries, which have exploded with the health crisis. But which seem to be settling: during the last quarter of 2021, it is indeed this segment of transport and warehousing which “contributes the most to the drop” observed in business creations.

By Denis Deguilhen, associate director of Cabinet Walter Recruitment, and president of Oddity VR

Tribune. To meet the challenges of a world in continuous transformation, recruiting no longer appears to be the only or necessarily the best option. Indeed, in many cases, the talents sought already exist in the company. The challenge for directions: find them!

If technical competence is a prerequisite, it can be easily acquired through adequate training. What really counts are no longer these hard skills, but the behavioral skills of the candidate, the famous soft skills, which is so difficult to evaluate successfully.

The taking into account of soft skills : main marker of an efficient and ambitious HR policy

Knowledge and expertise are now challenged by empathy, creativity or even emotional intelligence. Proof of this is that, according to a recent study*, 60% of executives expect their company to take into account the evaluation of their soft skills in the near future, failing which they declare themselves ready to leave.

Between societal changes, the rise of the start-up model favoring creativity and leadership, the massive use of digital, which gives access to unlimited knowledge, or even robotization which re-examines the place of man in the company , these behavioral skills increase in power. Especially since the acceleration of technological breakthroughs leads to the increasingly rapid obsolescence of technical skills and the need for employees to reorient themselves throughout their professional career.

We are at the dawn of a new cycle and a major turning point. Companies that are able to manage this upheaval, in a professional, proactive and innovative way, will acquire a decisive competitive advantage. For HRDs, identify these soft skills internally, it means opening up new possibilities for finding the talents they lack, re-examining everyone’s place in the company, organizing satisfactory career development and bringing out talents.

In the end, everyone wins! Be careful, however, not to underestimate the difficulty of evaluating and measuring soft skills, a factor that is almost exclusive to the failure situations faced by leaders.

A mismatch between needs and assessment tools

If you want to do quality work, you have to start with an inventory. However, not long ago, we were still measuring the soft skills on the basis of graphological analyses, until the appearance of personality tests which, thanks to a battery of questions, make it possible to draw up a fairly global portrait of the state of mind of employees. Nevertheless, as many HRDs of large companies admit, failures in terms of professional reorientation or internal promotion very often remain the result of a poor perception of these skills.

There is a problem of reliability, but also a gap between these tools and the very rapid evolution of companies confronted with the digital revolution. Fortunately, new methods are emerging that make the most of the latest scientific discoveries to identify and measure in each individual qualities such as autonomy, adaptability, critical thinking, creativity, loyalty, service or flexibility.

At the crossroads of video games and behavioral sciences, virtual reality boosted with AI now offers a new approach to the evaluation of soft skills. Combining aptitude, intelligence and personality tests in the context of immersive 3D scenarios, it constitutes a revolutionary approach, which is based on a playful operating mode, systematically obtaining the consent of those concerned.

Immersive experiences that reveal personalities

Equipped with a VR headset, the candidate lives a total and interactive experience, at the same time sensory, motor and cognitive. Immersed in a new reality, disconnected from his environment, out of his comfort zone and far from his usual landmarks, he quickly lets go, forgetting the assessment to reveal his true nature. Immersion facilitates the expression of his personality: it pushes him to follow his instincts and adopt more natural behaviors.

Virtual reality solutions adapted to the detection of soft skills thus reveal the degree of affect and all of the reactions to the obstacles encountered, helping to determine who the person really engaged in this “test” is. The candidate becomes a real actor in his evaluation, and there is never a bad result.

Beacons and algorithms then measure its behavior. At the end of the experiment, the conclusions are issued in the form of a map which highlights the soft skills the most developed and therefore, those on which the employee will have to work according to his ambitions. The possibilities for development in this area are endless.

Tomorrow, companies will be able to configure these applications with scenarios and settings in line with their universe. Already, they can refocus the evaluation on the 5 or 6 soft skills that they consider to be a priority, for precise surgical results. As you will have understood, we are only at the beginning of this HR revolution!

By Denis Deguilhen, associate director of Cabinet Walter Recruitment, and president of Oddity VR

Tribune. To meet the challenges of a world in continuous transformation, recruiting no longer appears to be the only or necessarily the best option. Indeed, in many cases, the talents sought already exist in the company. The challenge for directions: find them!

If technical competence is a prerequisite, it can be easily acquired through adequate training. What really counts are no longer these hard skills, but the behavioral skills of the candidate, the famous soft skills, which is so difficult to evaluate successfully.

The taking into account of soft skills : main marker of an efficient and ambitious HR policy

Knowledge and expertise are now challenged by empathy, creativity or even emotional intelligence. Proof of this is that, according to a recent study*, 60% of executives expect their company to take into account the evaluation of their soft skills in the near future, failing which they declare themselves ready to leave.

Between societal changes, the rise of the start-up model favoring creativity and leadership, the massive use of digital, which gives access to unlimited knowledge, or even robotization which re-examines the place of man in the company , these behavioral skills increase in power.

The Kaspersky / Arlington Research study shows that in more than one out of two French companies, obtaining a budget to strengthen cybersecurity remains very difficult.


According to a survey published by Kaspersky and conducted by Arlington Research, European companies often lack the resources to call on third-party cybersecurity expertise, both financially and in terms of internal knowledge.

publishedTo assess the needs of business leaders in terms of cybersecurity, the publisher Kaspersky commissioned the firm Arlington Research to interview 1,500 European decision-makers in six countries, including France. The results testify to a frequent lack of resources in companies when it comes to calling on outside expertise. While more than 62% of French decision-makers fear being victims of a cyberattack, 57% would like to be able to call on trusted experts, but consider their resources insufficient for this. Finally, only 8% of European decision-makers and 13% in France call on external experts, with a measurable impact according to the study: on average, 10% fewer cyberattacks.

The obstacles are both an insufficient level of internal knowledge on the subject and financial aspects. Thus, for more than 52% of French decision makers surveyed (54% in Europe), it is very difficult to obtain a budget to improve cybersecurity, and for almost a third (30%), their company does not invest enough in this area. Furthermore, more than 63% of respondents (and even 66% in France) believe that organizations that are victims of cyberattacks do not receive the same level of support from their state as victims of theft in real life. Another notable fact, 63% of respondents are concerned about the risk of criminal prosecution against them for security incidents of which their own company would be the victim.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(3432) "

A young innovative company is a special status, allowing a company specializing in research and development to benefit from multiple tax breaks. Here is some information on the benefits associated with JEIs.

What is a young innovative company?

A young innovative company (JEI) is an SME, which invests in research and development. A JEI can benefit from tax and social relief, such as an exemption from tax on profits or a reduction in employer contributions. To obtain the status of young innovative company, it is essential to meet certain conditions:

Among the JEIs, there is a particular category: the young university enterprise (JEU). A GAME must be held for at least 10% of its capital by students and have concluded an agreement with a higher education institution. Its activity must be linked with research work.

Young innovative company and Bofip

The site of the Official Bulletin of Public Finances (BOFIP) specifies all the procedures for obtaining tax reductions and tax relief for JEIs. The essential criteria for earning its status as a young innovative company are also indicated in detail.

Young innovative company: example

Among the many JEIs, we can mention the start-up Simplébo. This company has developed a unique technology, which automates 80% of website creation. Thanks to this innovation, Simplébo can offer a website creation service from A to Z, at unbeatable prices.

Young innovative company: the list

There is no official list of JEIs, but some sites list French start-ups specializing in research and innovation. In 2015, 3,519 companies benefited from the status of young innovative companies, enabling them to take advantage of tax relief such as exemption from employer social insurance contributions. Other benefits, the reduction of corporation tax and a total exemption from annual flat tax.

The benefit of the social exemption granted to the JEI does not require any prior request or declaration to the Urssaf. The young innovative company must file a file with the tax services department on which it depends, during the first 10 months of its activity. An example of a request for an opinion is available on the website of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research or on the website www.impots.gouv.fr.

Arcade centers still abound in Japan, although their attendance has declined significantly since the end of the last century. In addition, Sega Sammy Holdings, the parent company of the video game publisher, has decided to sell them gradually since 2020 to get rid of them. And it’s now official after 50 years of activity, the arcade part of Sega closes its doors.

Sega arcade: the end of an era?

Given that we are currently in 2022, it is difficult to understand the power of the arcade industry, especially in France, but it is still a very important economic aspect in the Japanese video game landscape. In 2020, Sega Sammy had already sold to Genda Inc (a subsidiary of Sega Entertainment) nearly 85.1% market share for these goods.

The pandemic unfortunately accelerated things, and the same year, the famous arcade center Akihabara had already closed its doors. The rest of the shares were sold today, and the company will officially rename itself Genda GiGO Entertainment, and all Japanese arcade centers previously affiliated with Sega will rename themselves GiGO.

The first Sega Arcade centers were born in 1960, and the number reached the peak of 1000 centers throughout the country in 1990. To tell you that it is anchored in the Japanese video game universe. Genda GiGO President Hisashi Kataoka announced:

“Sega Centers across the country will change their names to GiGO, to express our gratitude to Sega’s 56-year history and our desire to become an entertainment oasis for people. […] We’ll start in Ikebukuro, Akihabara, and Shinjuku, then nationwide.”

An era is ending for Sega and its many arcade games that have marked more than one generation. Furthermore, the road continues for our favorite blue hedgehog with Sonic Frontiers, due this year on all consoles.

On Wednesday, January 26, Charles Hoskinson, co-founder and CEO of IO Global, the company responsible for developing the Cardano (ADA) blockchain, made a resounding statement. He announced that he has “really looking forward” to see the next DEX of the Slovak startup Vacuumlabs. This statement sparked a wave of reactions on social networks.

Vacuumlabs, a company that has established itself over time

Vacuumlabs is “a software development company that develops modern and comprehensive fintech solutions for startups and incumbent banks”, reads on the company’s website. It first became interested in the Cardano blockchain in 2018. During that time, its developers were working on AdaLite which eventually became the online Cardano wallet.

“In 2018, the developers at Vacuumlabs launched an internal project to develop the first lightweight Cardano wallet. What was supposed to be a “weekend project” took weeks, but AdaLite was born. Since then, AdaLite has cemented itself as the leading web-based Cardano wallet, and with it has installed Vacuumlabs as a key development partner in the Cardano ecosystem,” informs the website of the company.

But Vacuumlabs didn’t just collaborate with Cardano. Soon she became a major company in its sector of activity, since it has increased partnerships with other companies. That said, going back to Cardano, Vacuumlabs has signed a partnership with its commercial arm EMURGO.

The most important Vacuumlabs project

Currently, Vacuumlabs aims to strengthen its presence in the field of cryptocurrencies. In this capacity, she works on many projects, including the development of WingRiders. According to the information provided, WingRiders will soon allow its users to trade, earn and “steal” tokens. But for now, there are very few details leaking out about the project which was unveiled in the first quarter of 2022.

All we know about WingRiders is that it’s about“a decentralized exchange (DEX) of the type Automated Market Maker (AMM) develop on Cardano using the eUTxO model on the mainchain. The project is powered by VacuumLabs, one of the most respected developers in the Cardano space”.

“WingRiders aims to be a piece of infrastructure for the entire Cardano ecosystem, with easy integration into any wallet or DApp. Accessible through many platforms, supporting connectors and hardware wallets such as Ledger or Trezor. The platform will be fully decentralized, and will support trading between native Cardano tokens.”

The Vaccumlabs company will soon launch a new tool, WingRiders, which will allow its users to perform various actions with the tokens they have. For Charles Hoskinson, the creator of the Cardano (ADA) blockchain, this project may be one of the most remarkable on the market. He expects a lot, and so do the users of Vaccumlabs services.

Srikanth Bolla is set to be the subject of a Bollywood movie about his life. This young CEO built a company worth over $60 million, but it almost didn’t happen. As a teenager, Srikanth was told it was illegal for him to study math and science at a graduate school because he is blind. So he sued an Indian state to make this possible, as Arundhati Nath explains.

Every day for two years, six-year-old Srikanth Bolla walked several miles to school in rural India, guided by his brother and following his classmates.

The ride was a muddy, shrub-lined path that flooded during the monsoon. It was not a happy time.

“No one spoke to me because I was a blind child,” he says.

In Muttersholtz, everyone knows the Mathis company, established in the heart of the village for five generations. Mathis is one of the three biggest specialists in wood construction in France. Historically all the production and the design office are done in Alsace, precisely in Muttersholtz. “We design, we draw, we manufacture and we install”, says François KLUGHERTZ, East-Export Sector Director. Mathis employs 160 people on permanent contracts, plus around 40 temporary workers right now because the activity has exploded. It must be said that the Mathis company has been selected to work on the sites of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The building has already been built Pulse in Saint-Denis which hosts the offices of the organizing committee of the Olympic Games, as well as the temporary Grand Palace, on the Champs de Mars in Paris and which is intended to host martial arts competitions. Remain to be built for Mathis accommodation buildings for athletes in Saint-Denis and Saint-Ouen, basketball arena and especially the Aquatic Center Saint-Denis (opposite the Stade de France) which will be a technical feat.

Unheard of in France

The roof of the Aquatic Center will be made of glued laminated timber catenas with a span of 90 meters! It is a world first in these dimensions. For a year now, the Mathis design office has been working on this project. It will take 7,600 hours to design, calculate and make the plans for this important structure of 2,300 m3 of glued laminated timber elements, 3,400 m2 of insulated timber frame walls and 350 tonnes of metal components. The installation will last seven months (from April 2022 to the end of November 2022). The first wooden elements have been manufactured since last November and stored in the Paris region. Scandinavian spruce is used for this project. At the opening of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, half of Mathis’ employees will have participated in the construction of one of the new Olympic buildings.

In this litter, with this type of structure, it is indeed a world first. To my knowledge, there are two other buildings of this type there in the world, one in Canada, the other in Japan. But in these dimensions it is indeed a world first. Elements that will reach up to 90 meters, in very small sections, which makes for a rather incredible technical performance. / François KLUGHERTZ, East-Export Sector Director at Mathis

In parallel with this Olympic project, which will give a good reputation to the Alsatian company, Mathis is working on the construction of a campus with five wooden buildings for offices. “It’s a huge project in parallel with Paris 2024”, confirms François KLUGHERTZ, East-Export Sector Director at Mathis. « Our order book is saturated. People understood that you could make a lot of things out of wood. It’s a rediscovery (there have always been half-timbered houses). Wood is the only structural material that stores carbon (unlike steel and concrete). 1 m3 of wood stores one ton of carbon. More wood is a renewable resource. The sawmills we work with have a responsible approach: 1 tree cut = 1 tree replanted”.

Mathis has references on five continents, such as the Nouméa Cultural Center (New Caledonia), one of his most important projects in 1995.
