History[edit | edit source]
In February 2014 the company raised €1.8 Million with Emertec Gestion and Demeter Partners. The same year Ÿnsect won the World Innovation Award and the Cleantech Company of the Year Award in France.
Ÿnsect invested €13 Million in 2015 to build Ÿnsite, its first farmhouse (Fermilière), with the closing of its second financing round at the end of 2014 for €5.8 Million and public authorities' support for €6 Million.
In 2016 Ÿinsect made its first deliveries to customers in the pet-food sector, after the opening of Ÿinsite, in Dole, France. At the end of the year, it completed its third round of financing of €14.2 million with the BPI France Ecotechnologies fund, Quadia and its historical shareholders. With this money Ÿinsect accelerated its development and launched its first large farmhouse, ŸnFarm#1.
