Raising $1.4 million in 2014, $10 million in 2016, then $28 million in 2017, Shift Technology is one of France's most promising young firms. The start-up specializes in a very specific segment of the market, but one that is highly promising given the strong demand for its services. It offers a SaaS solution for insurance companies, enabling them to detect fraudulent declarations and thus combat insurance fraud.

The company has already established itself as a leader, since its artificial intelligence tool, used by 45 insurers worldwide, has made it possible to secure 400 million declarations of various kinds.
