Onboarding the entire ecosystem to drive the industry forward
At Samp, we believe that a sustainable environmental and energy transition starts with quickly modernizing existing industrial facilities. We are convinced that our solution can be a catalyst!
Environmental and economical challenges urge owners and operators to adapt much faster than ever before to new processes and feedstocks. And yet, the pace at which a site can evolve is severely limited by highly inefficient methods and processes.
Samp reduces to a few hours – instead of weeks or months – the time needed to prepare, execute and capture any modification on site. With Samp, all teams speak the same language, consolidated around an always up-to-date 3D point cloud of equipment and systems. Our solution enables safer and faster revampings, smooth handovers and better asset management.
After her Ph.D., Shivani (now co-founder and CTO) wanted to solve deep technical problems and apply her unique Machine Learning expertise to tackle some of the major societal challenges. Energy was at the top of her list!
Laurent (now co-founder and CEO) had been working for large companies in the energy & utilities industry for 15 years, experiencing the major challenges faced by this industry, needing a major shift. Willing to maximize his impact, he decided to embrace an entrepreneurial journey.
Shivani and Laurent met within Entrepreneur First – a “deep tech” accelerator and investment facility that aims to develop new innovations across a range of frontier technologies.
The complementarity of Laurent’s first-hand experience of the industry’s need to adapt quickly to modern challenges together with Shivani’s unique tech was obvious. They shared a common excitement: together, they would automate the creation of a Shared Reality for industrial sites to accelerate their modernization. Samp was born!

In September 2021, Samp moved to the next stage of its development, joining the Agoranov deeptech incubator in Paris, home of several unicorns and IPOs.
In-depth analysis of the startups ecosystem, including the yearly “David with Goliath” study by RAISE and Bain & Company, shows that it is during the operational phases of collaborations that projects tend to run out of steam and compromise their chances of success.
To ensure the success of projects and to industrialize them on a large scale, RaiseLab provides innovative methodologies to entrepreneurs, partners and decision makers to scale the business and strategic impact of their joint projects.
In June 2022, Samp joined RaiseLab, a vibrant ecosystem powered by Schoolab and RAISE. RaiseLab focuses on fostering alliances between startups and large corporates. Beyond amazing offices in the center of Paris, RaiseLab provides operational support for fast growing startups.
