Thales’ technology complementarity policy aims at creating further value for its clients.  

Thales Digital Factory incubates in-house and external startups, providing the right environment and the services they need to develop, such as coaching and technical support.

In-house startups emerge from individual or team projects developed by Thales employees during the time allocated to their personal projects. If the project is considered of business value and in line with the group’s strategy, it will be given the opportunity to evolve as an intrapreneurial project and become, after a screening and development phase, a startup.
