Include complementary services to add value to the shopping experience for French majors retailers’ clients and improve customer satisfaction. That’s the pivot that Mon Super Voisin, co-founded by Sylvain Beral, class of 2016, has made. The start-up has raised €1 million to target large national stores such as Mr Bricolage and E. Leclerc.
Sylvain Beral, class of 2016, is a graduate of the ESILV-EMLV double-degree in engineering and management. A seasoned entrepreneur, he has been involved since he left engineering school to build Mon Super Voisin’s business model. This start-up aims to revolutionize access to home services.
Since 2020, the former assistance application between individuals has taken a complete service turn, becoming an omnichannel B2B solution that is fully integrated into the buying process.
After making a strategic pivot, Mon Super Voisin raised €1 million in a funding round from 44 French retail experts supporting the start-up’s new business model.

“We have proposed a business model of membership for large accounts. Our objective is to enable our customers to diversify their commercial offer.
We suggest complementary services to the commercial products. It is this model that helped us to attract investors for our fundraising”, said Sylvain Beral, 2016 alumnus.
The €1M will fuel the development of Mon Super Voisin’s “B to B” service solution and the recruitment of the new workforce that comes with it.
