ARTS ET BIENS invested in 1999 and 2000 in growth capital rounds to finance the development of the online distribution business.
“A long-term investor as evidenced by its history, ARTS ET BIENS also knows how to be a pioneer to assess new markets, decide and act quickly. In 1999, they were the first to join the start-up AQUARELLE, which was then only a boutique of florists, certainly ambitious and innovative, but still tiny, with the aim of challenging a century-old company established worldwide” Henri de Maublanc – AQUARELLE.com Chairman
