Interview of Guilhem ENSUQUE, Founder and President d'Attestis
  • Editorial Committee: Where would you situate your company's innovation?

Guilhem ENSUQUE (GE) : In a recent interview with the BatiActu site, Julien Denormandie - Secretary of State near the Minister for the Cohesion of the Territories in charge of Housing - declared: “ To build better and more quickly, there is the question of the recourse. Today between 30 and 40,000 projects are in authority of recourse and thus solidified, which prevented people from working. ». The government made fight against the recourse abusive one of the axes of its strategy for Housing presented at the end of September 2017. All the building sites are concerned with the risk of recourse. There is nearly a million building sites authorized in France each year. With international, we consider the market addressable in the countries with the similar lawful requirements in France to approximately 3 year/building site million, surely more because it is difficult to have an exhaustive sight of the lawful characteristics of each country on a worldwide scale.

  • EC: How did you go about developing your project?

GE: The idea to create Attestis came to me from my personal experience of particular owner. At the time of relatively modest construction projects in my residence, and in a context of vicinity rather tended, I realized of the heaviness of the administrative approaches for obtaining an authorization of town planning and stress caused by the risk of recourse. This risk is due to the fact that if you do not have the proof of the posting of your authorization on the lawful panel, then you are at the mercy of a recourse which can lead to the stop of the building site, even the destruction of already committed work. This over one very long period potentially.

Making profitable my experiment of engineer telecom, I imagined a simple solution and economic proof of posting which can be entirely realized since his smartphone, while being legally valid. Attestis was born!

  • EC: What actions and deployments are currently in the pipeline?

GE : Side R & D, we finalize the development of the first version of our platform and digital services (Web applications and mobile) for a launching during the course of the first quarter 2018. We also engaged the development of our connected panel, the ultimate weapon against the recourse late in the construction industry.

Side business, we refine our strategy of market access of the professionals of construction, via prescribers (e.g. notaries or architects) and let us start to canvass final customers, such as the property developers or the master builders individual. We plan for example to take part in the Congress of the Notaries which will be held in Cannes at the end of May 2017.

  • EC: Why did you join the SCS Cluster?

GE: The SCS Cluster is an inevitable actor of the ecosystem of the innovation in our Area, and its sets of themes are very exactly in our core business: the Internet of Things (embarked systems, communications without wire) and the numeric security, source of confidence in our evidence. The SCS Cluster in particular allowed us to meet the providers who allow us today to accelerate the realization of our solution in fields of expert testimony such as the electronic design or the blockchain.

  • EC: Has the SCS Cluster brought you what you were looking for?

GE : Yes, completely. Beyond the partnerships mentioned above, the SCS Cluster brought to us an invaluable help in the assembly of a file of financing near BPI and the Area. It is moreover one essential forum to be held informed last technological and industrial trends.

  • EC: What do you expect of the Cluster in the future?

GE: I think that our implication in the SCS Cluster and our waitings will go hand in hand with the growth and the development of our company. As a startup, we are today on “level 1” in search of visibility and benevolent knacks of the other members. The next levels to be passed, with the assistance of the SCS Cluster, will include the phase of industrialisation and our international deployment.
