- Founded in 2017 and profitable since its inception, Singulier supports investors and their portfolio companies on their digital, tech, data and AI transformation challenges.
- Working internationally as “Taskforces As a Service”, Singulier’s teams support investors from the due diligence phase to the execution of the value creation plan.
- This funding will enable it to make targeted acquisitions and accelerate the development of its teams of experts in data science, AI and data infrastructure, as well as to contribute to its international expansion (50% of its business).
Paris, December 14, 2023 – Singulier, a strategy and digital transformation consulting firm, today announces its first fundraising of €5M, led by Founders Future and followed by MACSF, with the idea of taking advantage of this first envelope to accelerate its growth.
Technology at the service of investment
Based on the observation that investment funds, private equity players and corporates did not have access to the right tools to accelerate their digital transformation, Rémi Pesseguier (formerly McKinsey) and Mathieu Ferel founded Singulier in 2017. The idea was to create long-term value according to a unique model where strategy evolves seamlessly into execution, providing clients with unparalleled know-how thanks to experts in media, marketing, customer experience, product, and UX.
Singulier thus breaks away from the traditional approach of generalist consulting firms through a holistic approach. The company combines the methodology of major strategy consulting firms with expertise covering the entire digital value chain. Its proprietary technologies support its clients upstream of their investment to establish a strategic and technological diagnosis of the target company. During the holding period, Singulier advises managers and shareholders in the identification and definition of value-creation plans and, above all, supports their execution.
In 2021, the company launched HOLIS, a data analytics platform designed to inform investors’ decision-making throughout the investment and due diligence cycle. In 2022, Singulier added GRAPHITE, a team of data infrastructure experts, engineers, and analysts dedicated to co-creating and implementing fully customized data solutions that seamlessly integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics into business operations.
Present in Paris, London and Munich, profitable and self-financed since its inception, the company has a team of 80 employees and works with private equity funds such as KKR, Ardian, Montefiore, Bain Capital and PAI, as well as with corporates such as Interflora, Havéa, SNCF and CMA CGM. Since its creation, its average annual growth rate (CAGR) has been 36%, and the company achieved a turnover of €14M in 2022.

A first round of financing to structure its development
Singulier wants to take advantage of its first round of fundraising to accelerate its growth. First, the company wants to strategically integrate a set of key players upstream and downstream of the proposed value chain into its structure. Finally, in addition to recruiting new members for its team, the company aims to accelerate its international development, especially building in Northern Europe.
“Digitalization is a real economic challenge for our customers, and many are lagging behind in their digital transformation. Our hybrid model, combining strategic vision and operational expertise, allows us to meet both the strategic and business challenges of investment funds and managers, but also to implement the value creation plan with the operational teams to achieve results and impact quickly” say CEO Rémi Pesseguier and Mathieu Ferel, both co-founders of Singulier.
“Singulier responds to a recurring problem in our sector: the evaluation of the quality of the digital asset and the long-term support for its construction. From the first use, we discover how reliable and efficient their tools are and how they change the way we work. We are all the more delighted to support them as they have already shown a strong ability to support the biggest players in the sector. The next steps in their growth are going to be extremely interesting” says Marc Menasé, CEO and founder of Founders Future.
Founded in 2017 by Rémi Pesseguier and Mathieu Férel, Singulier combines deep expertise in strategy consulting and digital transformation to work hand-in-hand with private equity funds.
