French startup studio eFounders just raised $6 million from Fotolia’s co-founder Oleg Tscheltzoff

eFounders, the Paris-based startup studio, has just announced securing $6 million in funding to build its next ventures and strengthen its infrastructure (Update – July 2023: The startup seems to be no longer in business under this website, and we therefore deactivated the original link).

eFounders new ‘super angel’ is Oleg Tscheltzoff, former co-founder of Fotolia (which was  sold to Adobe a few months ago for $800 million). Oleg has an great experience in launching and scaling startups and will bring his wisdom to the building of eFounders next 6 ventures in 18 months.

Since it launched in 2010, eFounders has been running on its own funds. So far, the Paris-based company builders have helped to start and grow startups like Mailjet, TextmasterMention, Front, Aircall and Pressking (which was sold to ePressPack in March 2015) (Update – July 2023: Pressking seems to be no longer in business under this website, and we therefore deactivated the original link)..In the second half of 2015, four new projects will be launched by eFounders:

  • illustrio, for on-demand customised illustrations;
  • Tipi, for all office managers;
  • Admin X, a “back-office as a service”;
  • PayX  – which is still confidential.

eFounders focuses on SaaS startups, and aims to carry each of their startups for up to 18 months. The company builder develops startup ideas internally, and the eFounders team receives around 100 applications per month to become the CEO or CTO of their new startups. After the initial launch and support phase, each startup should be able to stand on its own two feet.
