We are global innovation funding specialists
Thanks to our unique methods and 23 years of knowledge and experience, our clients can benefit from complementary sources of financing while remaining focused on their core business.
Founded in Paris in 1997, Leyton is an international consulting firm dedicated to the economic, ecological and social development of all types of organizations. Our consultants are technical experts who provide concrete solutions that contribute to our clients’ growth and development.
Our 1,500 employees, who are passionate about their jobs, are located in 11 countries and 31 agencies, and share values such as team spirit, innovation and sustainable development.
Above all, Leyton is an entrepreneurial adventure that began with two persevering and determined leaders: François Gouilliard, Founding Chairman, and Olivier de Beauminy, Co-founder.
“If we have nothing to lose, then we might as well help people to gain something.”
This was the main motivation for these two 23-year old entrepreneurs to
embark on a career that helps innovative businesses improve their performance.
At Leyton, we value differences and diversity. Each of our employees personality, experience and culture brings a distinctive value to the company. We possess a curiosity, a unique angle of analysis and a vision that allows the entire team to provide our customers with the most appropriate solutions to their performance challenges.
Innovation is at the heart of our daily actions. For our teams, each new customer issue and regulatory change is an opportunity to innovate and improve the value of our service.
Reducing our impact on the environment, promoting inclusion and helping the most disadvantaged are all areas on which our employees are supporting, either through direct action or the support of associations. It is also one of Leyton’s commitments to support our customers sustainable development within their business.
With the entry into force of the “Forschungszulagengesetz” in Jan 2020, LEYTON has finally found a sound reason to step into the German market by setting up the first German entity LEYTON Deutschland GmbH.
USP and mission: “Export LEYTON’s know-how and group-wide gathered expertise of identifying and claiming eligible R&D projects in order to actively help companies which are exposed in Germany, Europe’s strongest economy.” (Ulrich von Fürstenberg)
As starting point we have chosen the our first office in Düsseldorf, capital of the German’s economically most important region North Rhine Westfalia.
After only 4 months of success with over 10 clients signed on R&D TC and evtl. national grants, we will be soon opening our 2nd office in Munich, Bavaria.
By December we will have more than 5 Business Developers and over 5 Consultants. Our Sales staff will be supported by a German-dedicated support team based in the LEYTON Warsaw office. With increasing demand on “Environmental services” we will also be replying on requests from our clients within the field of Energy efficiency.
