At the beginning of Adenfi, 3 friends and visionary engineers

« We made the following observation: France lacked integrated firms on the technical and financial aspects advising the actors of the energy transition in their development and responsible financing. »
Nicolas, Aurélia and Gaël then decided to join forces and Adenfi was born in 2011. With strong entrepreneurial values ​​and advanced skills, the company quickly developed an innovative service of consulting, expertise and mediation between technical and financial interlocutors. To this day, they are the only ones on the market to juggle these traditionally sectored universes.
« We have always worked by taking controlled risks. This is valid in the business and through our respective lives. »
