Thanks to the availability of funding, a large client base, top talent, renowned universities and a dynamic startup culture, the Paris Region’s assets are ideal for companies looking to accelerate their growth, or for those interested in starting a business in France.

Access capital

€3.6 billion raised by venture capital in 2018, with an additional €141 million raised through crowdfunding. Local fundraising has doubled over the last three years, with €5 billion projected for 2019, in addition to tax incentives, subsidies, and government grants all aimed at helping your business succeed.

Connect with prospects

The region is also home to one of the largest concentrations of major companies in the world and a large consumer population with one of the highest per capita GDPs in Europe. Our networking events and targeted introductions ensure that startups and SMEs can meet multinationals looking for innovative solutions and products.

Meet future clients

We support international startups and innovative SMEs by organizing regular “TechMeetings” around the world with a focus on a specific industry or technology. Entrepreneurs are invited to pitch and meet Fortune 500 companies to discuss business partnerships.

Source top talent

Home to a large, well-educated and international workforce, the Paris Region is an ideal place to source technical skills and top talent. It’s no surprise then that the region is ranked the world’s leading destination for R&D investments. In addition, the region’s world-class universities and engineering schools are a major draw for companies looking to recruit.

Grow your business

An extensive network of 400+ incubators, fab labs and coworking spaces allow arriving international companies to hit the ground running and benefit from a collaborative environment. Office space costs are also well below that of other major international cities like London, Tokyo and San Francisco. In short: companies in the Paris Region can afford to expand.

We believe in France’s potential to be a leader in AI and want to contribute.
