In just over two minutes, a variety of clichés are dispelled through hard data and no little good humor. So if you’re thinking that productivity isn’t great in France, maybe you weren’t aware that French employees actually work longer hours than the Germans! Perhaps you also think that the French aren’t born entrepreneurs? And yet France is one of the easiest places in which to found a company, and Europe’s leading country for new businesses! Why not put the clichés to one side for a moment and just see for yourself what France really has to offer: https://youtu.be/KUTO8NL2dJg “Vous pensez peut-être que…” telle est l’accroche du nouveau film sur les idées reçues sur la France produit par Business France. En un peu plus de deux minutes, les clichés associés à la France sont confrontés à des chiffres concrets et contredits de façon positive et humoristique. Si vous pensez que la France n’est pas productive, vous ne devez sûrement pas savoir que les salariés français travaillent plus que les allemands ? Peut-être croyez-vous aussi que la France n’aime pas entreprendre ? Mais saviez-vous qu’elle est l’un des pays au monde où il est le plus simple de créer une entreprise et le premier pays d’Europe créateur d’entreprises ! Oubliez donc ces clichés et laissez-vous convaincre en un clic que la France n’est pas celle que vous imaginez ! https://youtu.be/PGpjc7SDnwI
Créative France ( 2
CREATIVE FRANCE What if we were to cast aside current preconceptions of France? Creative France chooses to surprise, by immersing you into a landscape abounding in hidden treasures with unexpectedly ingenious features. To one side, a typical French-style garden reflects France’s recognized excellence and expertise. On the other, a France of creativity, innovation, disruptive technology, strong commitment and collaborative partnerships emerges. A French-style creative culture does indeed exist, fostered by a unique approach combining cutting-edge technology, savoir-faire and art de vivre , realism and innovative applications. This combination reflects change in a society inspired by its roots but driven by its entrepreneurial spirit. The flagbearers for this creative culture of surprises, technology, poetry and effective inspirations are mostly young businesses seeking a design edge. From an idea to its application, French creativity demonstrates its power to enrich our daily lives, to improve the quality and sustainability of products and services, and to play its part in advancing society. In this landscape, a musical instrument stands alongside surgical pliers, an exoskeleton meets an amphibious boat, and a wall plate hangs beside a photovoltaic film. French design embodies this bold blend of culture, economy and industry, by finding a creative balance all of its own that is recognized the world over. This creative melting pot owes nothing to chance, channeling its extraordinary ability and versatility into envisaging and initiating dialogue across different professional cultures. Projects both big and small presented in this exhibition showcase an impressive human adventure and reveal a message of optimism and confidence.
