4Stars, an investment fund managed by PLEION GROUP (Monaco) is the latest to invest in MONACO FOUNDRY.

Franck Musso, Senior Advisor in Wealth Management at PLEION Group (Monaco), represents an old Monaco family investment fund named 4Stars that has been keen to invest in MONACO FOUNDRY with its unique business model, impressive team and the ways in which they are changing the future of innovation in Monaco.

Franck Musso comments: “MONACO FOUNDRY has a unique business model which we believe is key to their success now and in the long-term. They have a pragmatic approach which is the best way for these startups to be successful. The team at MONACO FOUNDRY adds real value to their startups and as true partners, their team accompanies these companies through the process of building and scaling them into a successful business.” Musso continues, “As asset managers, we are independent advisors that are by our client’s side, not in front of them. When we provide recommendations for long term interests, we take a global view of Monaco and take everything in consideration. MONACO FOUNDRY encapsulates the real future of Monaco and innovation. Each company they choose has the possibility to make our world better and healthier.”

Robert Boisbouvier, Head of KPMG’s Monaco Startup Program said​, “​We are delighted to accompany and advise MONACO FOUNDRY as a key player into the innovation playground and a pioneer when it comes to building a new breed of business accelerator, the first of its kind worldwide. They cultivate new ideas and technologies embedding the economies of tomorrow. We are pleased to invent a new type of economic relationship with capital-risk companies and therefore investing into the new generation.

KPMG Monaco startup campus helps promising companies access first-class service in their developing years and therefore enhance a model based on trust and quality.”

Fabrice Marquet, co-Founder of MONACO FOUNDRY said, ​”At MONACO FOUNDRY we want to do something different. Our model is solely focused on long term value creation, we share the risks and the rewards with all the entrepreneurs we partner with. We could not be more pleased that PLEION and KPMG are also progressive and dare to think of the future of Monaco.

We are humbled that a historic Monegasque family shares our vision and has invested in MONACO FOUNDRY. This is a testament that they are truly concerned about the youth and that they believe, like us, that the status quo is not the answer. One of our core missions at MONACO FOUNDRY is to empower the next generation to break the old way of thinking that is still ruling and ruining our world. KPMG have developed a startup program and PLEION are adapting their services and advice to the new generation. With these partners, the future of Monaco looks brighter and has great promise.”
