Paris-based startup studio Hexa, formerly known as eFounders, has unveiled its latest lineup of emerging companies. Hexa is known for its focus on creating SaaS startups that shape the future of work, and this new batch of startups reflects the studio’s expanding scope. The upcoming companies cover enterprise SaaS and blockchain data solutions, showcasing Hexa’s dedication to exploring innovative ideas and trends.
Hexa has a successful track record, with portfolio companies like Front, Spendesk, and Aircall under its belt. The studio has launched over 40 startups in the past decade, reaching a total valuation of $5 billion. Hexa and its startup studios come up with the initial ideas and then collaborate with the right founding teams to bring those ideas to life.
One notable company in Hexa’s new lineup is Riverflow, a data orchestration startup from the studio’s web3 division, 3founders. Riverflow focuses on blockchain data and allows users to fetch information from smart contracts, blockchain transactions, and wallet addresses. The data can then be manipulated and transferred to various tools such as data warehouses, analytics platforms, and business intelligence tools.
Another intriguing startup is Okko, which aims to streamline procurement processes. With the increasing need for cost-cutting and extended runways, Okko seeks to revamp existing procurement tools, rather than building a new system from scratch. By integrating with platforms like Oracle NetSuite, Okko aims to modernize vendor portals and purchase order interfaces, making procurement more efficient.
Catalog, another SaaS tool, is targeted at B2B wholesale orders. It centralizes product information on a website, eliminating the need for obscure reference numbers in Excel files. Online orders are seamlessly integrated into the company’s ERP system, offering new possibilities for recurring orders, promotions, and product launches.
RingX, still in its early stages, focuses on corporate knowledge. As jobs become increasingly technical, RingX aims to connect professionals facing similar challenges, allowing them to learn from one another. The peer-to-peer platform facilitates connections and knowledge sharing between professionals working for different companies.
Kiosk, a SaaS startup built on top of WhatsApp Business, offers additional features to help companies communicate with their customers more efficiently. For example, Kiosk can be used as a chatbot-like funnel to acquire new customers. Additionally, it integrates with other SaaS tools like help desks, CRMs, and e-commerce platforms to handle support requests.
Finally, Tengo is a tool that consolidates all French public tenders, ensuring companies don’t miss any potential bidding opportunities. It detects both public and private tenders and leverages AI/LLM technology to assist in responding to tenders.
Hexa is already planning for future projects, with two more codenamed startups, TopiX and GPTX, in the works. TopiX aims to be a mobile-first communication tool with AI capabilities, while GPTX will offer generative AI-based solutions for internal use cases, focusing on privacy and security.
Hexa continues to drive innovation through its startup studios, creating groundbreaking solutions that shape various industries. With its proven expertise and successful portfolio, the studio is poised to make an impact in the startup ecosystem once again.
