This Romanian-led, Inria Paris Spin-off Aims to Improve Embedded Systems in Safety-Critical Industries

France, Romania ~

In the realm of embedded systems, two researchers-turned-entrepreneurs are helping companies make sure their machines are safe and efficient with a solution based on a process called statistical timing analysis. Dr. Adriana Gogonel and Dr. Liliana Cucu-Grosjean, founders of StatInf, bring years of expertise from the prestigious Inria Paris research institute. They started Statinf following a request from industrial partners to launch a commercial version of the prototype they created at Inria Paris. Today, their research work is materialized through a commercial product, RocqStat, two patents, and various partnerships.

Founded in December 2019, just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, StatInf has navigated the turbulence with the support of the French government. To date, they have received strategic financing in the form of €500,000, as part of an expected €1M seed funding round, led by WIT Angels Club, Arcadia Ventures, and Sharpstone Capital.”
