For some years now, the French Tech ecosystem has seen a spectacular growth, driven by a new generation of entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, and other talented people. The number of startups is exploding, fundraisings are exponential, and the number of international market leaders is growing: BlaBlaCar, DBV Technologies, Criteo to name a few.
This vibrant ecosystem is called “La French Tech,” a movement for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs and backed by the French Tech Initiative, an innovative public policy created by the French Government in 2013. The French Tech Initiative is boosting this collective dynamic, and its actions have taken part in establishing this ecosystem within the French economic landscape. Startups are now considered serious players that create economic value and inspire innovation.
