Purva Marwaha - 23-janv.-2018 07:30:22
  The President of France will be attending the “Choose France!” summit at the Palace of Versailles on Monday January 22, where distinguished guests will include nearly 140 business leaders representing some the world’s biggest businesses in a wide variety of sectors, from the automotive industry to new technologies, agri-food, financial services and healthcare. The “Choose France!” summit is another key stage in the promotion of France’s attractiveness as a business location after several months of far-reaching economic reforms by the French government. The aim of the event is to highlight how France stands up as an attractive business destination, underpinned by the announcement of various investment projects in France and the presence of 140 business leaders, many of whom are on their way to the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland), who will discuss their ambitions in France with the President, Prime Minister and 16 ministers. Five multinational firms will use the summit to announce major investment projects in France. Each of these will serve as a symbolic illustration – due to either their size, the sums being invested, growth or jobs being generated, or their excellence and significance for sectors of the future. A handful of smaller projects will also be announced during the event. As part of a day largely given over to France’s attractiveness to business, the President of France will also pay an early afternoon visit to Toyota’s industrial plant near Valenciennes (north-eastern France), where the Toyota Yaris is made (3.5 million units produced since opening in 2001) and 3,800 people are employed at a site driving employment in the local area.

The “French Tech Tour to India 2017”, a platform to bridging the French and Indian Tech ecosystems

Purva Marwaha - 30-oct.-2017 10:57:25
Business France, the Trade & Investment Commission of France in India, is organizing, with several stakeholders and partners, the second edition of the “French Tech Tour to India”, a multi-purpose and multi-format platform to run over Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Hyderabad & Bangalore from the 13 th  to the 17 th  of November 2017.   The “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will consist in an immersive mission to India for 9 innovative “French Tech” startups and SMEs and 1 of France and the World biggest car makers . The program for these companies will include customize business meetings with Indian start-ups, investors, partners and clients as well as pitch sessions and curated networking cocktails across the 4 cities. The first edition of the event in 2016 pitch sessions and networking and networking event was a tremendous success and recorded a footfall of more than 150 participants in each city.   France is eager to develop strong partnerships with the Indian start-ups ecosystems.  Therefore, the “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will also include meetings with several incubators in the 4 cities, and more specifically  T-Hub in Hyderabad , Indian leading start-ups incubator, and one the biggest in the World. The “French Tech Tour to India 2017” will finally have a strong participation  at the Bangalore ITE.Biz 2017  (Bangalore, 16th to 18 th  of November 2017), with the objective of strengthening reciprocal awareness between the French and Indian Tech ecosystems, and of promoting France as a leading Innovation and Business Hub in Europe for Indian Tech Companies. In the years to come, Business France looks forward to take these initiatives to greater scale.  The French Tech initiative fits in the with the goals and objectives of the “Startup India” and “Digital India” initiatives  by the Government of India. We hope that this spirit of reciprocal learning and collaboration between India and France strengthens in the following years.     *     *     *     *     * For some years now, the French Tech ecosystem has enjoyed a steady and strong development, driven by a new generation of entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, designers and other talented people. Like India, France has emerged as a leading Startup Power, home to vibrant Tech Hubs and talents, and imbued with a strong entrepreneurial culture. With 100,000 Engineers trained yearly, 6,000+ Tech startups, 200+ Tech startup incubators / accelerators, 100+ VC funds active, more and more large companies and Mid-Caps involved into startup initiatives, not to mention our Innovation Clusters, France stands among the leading ecosystems globally when considering Tech-related Entrepreneurship and Innovation; as ascertained by the fact that France led -for the 6th consecutive year- the race in the “Deloitte Fast 500 2015 EMEA” ranking with 87 laureates. The “French Tech” is benefiting from both Software and Hardware-centric capabilities. Also, while France has been historically known for Telecommunications and Media technologies for instance, the country has nurtured a growing number of World market leaders emerging in domains such as Big Data & Analytics (with Success Stories such as Criteo, Scality, Talend or Teads…), IoT and Connected Devices (over 25% of all startups exhibiting at the CES 2016 were French), eCommerce and Sharing /On-demand Economy, or BioTech and MedTech (No. 2 in the World for BioTech and No. 1 for MedTech IPOs over 2011-2015). In addition to public supportive programs, private initiatives such as the StationF to open in early 2017 in Paris (consisting in the retrofit of the Halle Freyssinet, to make it the largest business incubator worldwide with over 1,000 startups spread over 33,000 sqm), shall contribute to sustain this dynamic. Also noteworthy is the fact that many MNCs (Cisco, Facebook, General Electric, Google, Huawei, Intel Corporation, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung…) have implemented R&D and Innovation centers in France and are increasing the scale of their operations in this domain.   The “French Tech Tour to India” finds its origin in the statement that with over 5,000 and 6,000 Tech startups respectively, and many large corporates involved in Open Innovation and Acceleration programs, India and France both belong to the Top 5 of the Tech startup ecosystems in the world. Yet, further initiatives need to be developed to exploit the true potential for synergies and value co-creation between the 2 Startup Powers. Hence, in addition This French Tech Tour to India 2017 is part of the larger  French Tech  initiative spearheaded by the French Government and associated public and private stakeholders to promote innovation and the growth of startup ecosystems in France. These initiatives look at bridging the French and India Tech ecosystems, creating reciprocal awareness between the two ecosystems and enabling participating French Tech startups and SMEs to find their future partners and clients and develop in the Indian market   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. For further information, you can log on to the Website of the “French Tech” initiative:  http://bonjourlafrenchtech.com/   About Business France: Business France is the National Agency for the Internationalization of the French Economy, responsible for fostering the international expansion of French businesses as well as promoting and facilitating international investments in France.

UBIFRANCE helps French IT start-ups plug into global opportunities

Ridhima Verma - 10-déc.-2014 11:23:58
IT sector is no longer a novelty market. Companies of all sizes and sectors must have a scope of digital services for their clients or risk losing business. Fayssal Majid, UBIFRANCE’s IT project manager, explains: “Smartphone will be the new platform for all companies. They will need to have a mobile application as well as a site in order to attract customers and maintain a market share.” By 2020 the number of smartphone mobile subscriptions is expected to more than double to 6.1 billion. This is nearly the size of today’s global population of 6.7 billion.   Today’s France, ready for tomorrow’s world   France offers a mobilized IT ecosystem that is leveraging the best of France to not only satisfy the domestic market but also capture global customers. In fact the domestic market, a kind of reflection of the society’s focus on technology, has been following other developed countries in internet penetration and mobile usage: 54% of the French population uses the internet on their mobile and 74% of smartphone users research products and services on their phone.   Therefore, it should come as no surprise that France will be sending the biggest national delegation to 2015’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The size of delegation can be attributed to the quality of French engineers and the well-organized research clusters, many at a regional level, which offer incubation for a variety of independent ideas. For example take Systematic, a cluster from the Paris region, which has helped develop 379 projects and attracted investment of 2 billion euros over its brief history.   In fact, Mr. Majid explains that there are even further layers of organization that benefit the start up culture in France: “There are all start-ups which are very proud of their French roots but are looking globally. An initiative in collaboration with UBIFRANCE, La French Tech, helps them achieve this goal.”   La French Tech is a great collective project for the growth and influence of the French start-ups and digital ecosystem and has been behind such firms as the award winning Citizen Sciences. Citizen Sciences is a prime example of a French company that is not only matching but also advancing the technological frontier. Citizen Sciences is pioneering application of the field of “the internet of things” – the connectivity of everyday items for the purpose of improving usage and limiting human involvement – towards the human staple of clothing. At the moment they are working on products that will gather multiples of data, from heart rate to specific movements, for athletes as to improve their performance. The company was recognized as a winner of an Innovation Award at the 2014 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.   UBIFRANCE helps you reach your potential     Mr. Majid believes that the Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress in spring of 2015 is the perfect springboard for French businesses for global markets. IT has become much more of a global phenomenon and Mr. Majid believes that the direction of French companies should not only be towards showcases and markets in the US, but also emerging markets in Asia, South America, and even Africa: “Yes, French companies have always thought about the US, but in fact there is also much interest from places like the Middle East South East Asia and Africa, markets that are very large and growing.” Since the Mobile World Congress is a global event, this will provide the perfect introduction of French companies to prospective clients from all over the world.   Oledcomm is an example of a company that will be joining Mr. Majid in Barcelona. They are doing something truly special. Their products leverage your lighting network into something many of us find unthinkable: wireless communication and Internet services.   Famoco is yet another French company that will be at the MWC in Barcelona and they are working on a problem that we all though would be solved by now – contactless payment. Such advancements require massive logistical coordination and Famoco is making this possible. Look to Famoco to improve your experience in stores all around the world.   UBIFRANCE, the French agency for international business development, has 80 offices overseas. Its role is to help French companies in marketing their products abroad, as well assist foreign companies in finding French suppliers or partners.   More information about… Oledcomm Famoco The French Tech Pavilion @ Mobile World Congress
