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.

These events will gather representatives from the “India Tech” ecosystem the delegation coming from France on this occasion and the “French Tech” players already active and making in India. In this regard, over 50 Digital and ICTs “French Tech” players are currently availing legal set-ups in India.   The Ambassador of France to India, Mr Alexandre ZIEGLER says “ « French Tech Tour to India will offer its participants a one-week program across Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai. It will be an immersive program for 9, carefully selected, innovative “French Tech” startups and SMEs who are looking at expanding in the Indian market. I am convinced that the multiple interactions, which will take place over the course of this week, will pave the way for further collaborations, agreements and partnerships between French and Indian Tech stakeholders!. ”     In addition, Mr. Loïc RIVIERE, Secretary General of TECH IN France, and Mr. Mani DORAISAMY, Co-Founder of Guesswork.co, one the Indian laureates of the Season 1 of this “French Tech Ticket” are part of the “French Tech Tour to India 2016” delegation, which benefited from the support of Air France, sponsoring some participants and Awardees, thus showing its commitment towards Tech startups and SMEs globally.   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.   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 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 to the “French Tech Tour to India 2016”, and with further initiatives to come, the call for applications for the Season 2 of the “French Tech Ticket” program has been actively promoted over Q3 2016 towards the Indian entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Business France is thus deeply engaged in this drive aiming at further encouraging “India Tech” players to consider France as both a relevant partner, market and Hub in Europe, and vice versa. The “French Tech Tour to India 2016”, to become an annual rendezvous, shall contribute to this ambition in complement to other initiatives. ” says Mr. Sylvain BIARD, Managing Director Mumbai Office and Head, Tech & Services Department, Business France.

“Paris French Tech Ticket”: develop your startup in France!

Thomas ILHE - 09-juil.-2015 08:37:22
As part of the French Tech initiative, France officially launched in June 2015 the “Paris French Tech Ticket” to welcome foreign entrepreneurs who wish to launch or develop their ambitious entrepreneurial project in Paris. Applications are now opened until end of September 2015. Only the 500 first ones from all over the World will be taken into consideration for this first batch. This program is designed for non-French entrepreneurs from all around the world to set up a technology-related (digital, cleantech, medtech, biotech…) startup in France. All the foreign entrepreneurs are eligible, even if they are already based in France – finishing their studies, for instance. Teams of up to three founders are eligible, and can include up to one French member. This program, which will be held in English, includes a stipend of 12,500€ per founding member over six months (renewable at the end of the program), a fast-track procedure to obtain a French residence permit, free work space in a partner incubator in the heart of Paris, a mentoring program and help to relocate to the French capital. 50 entrepreneurs are expected for the first 6-month session in Paris. A first trial run of the program will hence be launched in Paris from September 2015 onwards:   ·          June 2015 : launch of the online platform for project applications;   ·          End of September 2015 : applications close;   ·          December 2015 : laureates announced;   ·          January 2016: first laureates arrive in France.   “Paris French Tech Ticket” is a pilot session, leading the way to a larger “French Tech Ticket” program encompassing all the 18 French Tech Metropoles from 2016 onwards. For additional details on the initiative (eligibility, schedule, partner incubators…) and to apply, please visit the “ French Tech Ticket”   Website. The “French Tech Ticket” is one of the numerous initiatives taken in the frame of the “ French Tech ” program, announced in 2013, designed for federating the various stakeholders working for or with French startups in France or abroad and aiming at fostering the startup ecosystem in France through various specific schemes. Teeming with innovation hubs and talents energized by an entrepreneurial mindset, France welcomes startups and fosters their development. As a force for value and job creation, startups are bound to become more global, as they bring talents and investors from all around the globe to France. With over 40 incubators (with the largest one in the World -La Halle Freyssinet- to be due in 2016 with over 108,000 sq. ft.), 80 coworking spaces, 20 fablabs, almost 1500 new start-ups created each year and a multiplication of success stories, Paris shows an exceptional dynamism, which is acknowledged in international rankings. Other initiatives to promote the “French Tech” program in India and to foster partnerships between the French and Indian technology-related business ecosystems will be initiated with Indian stakeholders, such as a “French Tech Tour in India” in 2016 which shall be coordinated by Business France.
