Managing Director of the Allianz accelerator
From its very first contact with Drivy, Allianz grasped the strategic importance of peer-to-peer rental. It has always acted more as a partner than as a simple insurance provider. This partnership has been vital in allowing us to expand our service to other European countries, and we save a great deal of time thanks to the international management of our contract by Allianz.

Les partenaires fondateurs

  • Established in 1997 as AGF Private Equity, Idinvest Partners was an Allianz subsidiary until 2010, when it became an independent company. With over €5 billion under management, Idinvest Partners is a major player in mid-market private equity in Europe. It has developed several areas of expertise, including equity investments in young, innovative European companies. Its portfolio of companies includes Withings, Criteo, Dailymotion, Viadeo, Pretty Simple and Sarenza. Despite the "large group DNA" that it has inherited from Allianz, Idinvest is now an independent company, however it maintains close ties with its former parent. It offers financing and development solutions to businesses in its portfolio in return for an innovative development strategy for the group.
