About the “French Tech” initiative:
Launched in 2013, the “French Tech” is an initiative spearheaded by the French Government in association with public and private stakeholders in order to nurture the densification, the growth and internationalization of Tech startup ecosystems in France, and to accrue the positioning of France as a leading European Innovation and Business Hub towards any Tech company.
It consists in:
– a set of programs (grants to entrepreneurs, access of entrepreneurs to IT and research resources, fund of funds, acceleration fund, “French Tech Ticket”, etc.) designed to achieve these objectives;
– networks of labeled ecosystems located throughout France;
– a brand and logo, this pink rooster to which any “French Tech” entrepreneur associates itself.
The “French Tech” eventually refers to all the stakeholders and individuals contributing to the Tech startup ecosystem in France or abroad.
The initiative is sector-agnostic and relates not only to the Digital economy or ICTs, but also to BioTech, CleanTech, EdTech, FinTech, FoodTech, MedTech, etc.
