Global Open Innovation Network

Paris, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Beijing and Shanghai

Faced with the increasingly fast pace of disruption, large companies are seeking to maintain their competitive advantage and integrate the latest cutting-edge solutions. We  leverage our expansive global network to help corporations address critical business challenges and accelerate innovation.

Choose Paris Region supports international startups and innovative SMEs by connecting them with Fortune 500 companies. Every year, regular TechMeetings are organized with a focus on a specific technology (artificial intelligence, connected health, smart city, augmented reality, etc.). International startups and innovative SMEs also apply to pitch and may be selected to meet several Fortune 500 companies and discuss business partnerships. 

Why Open Innovation

The accelerated pace of innovation due to the digital revolution is a major challenge for corporations. 40% of Fortune 500 companies could disappear within 10 years. Part of the solution lies in connecting with the startup ecosystem. Startups offer new business models and innovative technologies that large corporations need in order to remain competitive. Open Innovation is a powerful way for startups and large corporations to join forces and forge lasting business relationships.
