FAMOCO: a French company providing solutions to meet digitization needs in India

Purva Marwaha - 28-févr.-2018 11:55:50
It is estimated that by 2050, India will have a population of 1.7 billion and its urban population, boosted by rural exodus, will be around 850 million inhabitants which is the double of the existing population. In light of these colossal challenges & since the need for digitization is high, French company FAMOCO, the leader in secure professional devices, has opted to make India its primary development market. I n collaboration with the country’s leading national bank, State Bank of India (SBI) and partner system integrator.   FAMOCO offers unique solutions to meet the everyday consumer problems by enabling transactions digitally in India.    Since the demonetisation in November 2016, FAMOCO’s solution has provided a response to the recurring problems associated with the shortage of money in small denominations and the banking needs of people. The lack of cash is a real national issue, which has affected the most vulnerable populations. A lot of people in India do not have access to the financial services provided by traditional banks and therefore face difficulties with their day-to-day needs.    Working with its Indian partners, FAMOCO has a closed loop transaction solution used by thousands of shopkeepers, that simplifies low-value transactions. Currently being tested in several regions, FAMOCO payment cards and devices – which are far less expensive but just as secure as traditional payment solutions – provide a way of paying even the smallest amounts in shops and cafés, as well as for access to public transport. The introduction of digital transactions is helping to combat the informal economy and gives people the opportunity to open a cashless account. It represents a significant improvement in people’s day-to-day lives and offers the possibility to access microcredits. The company’s aim is to roll out FAMOCO’s solution across the country once the testing phase is complete.    Digitization to meet urbanization challenges According to a report published by the United Nations, India – the fifth largest global power in 2018 – is likely to have an additional 433 million city dwellers by 2050, taking the proportion of people living in urban environments from a third to almost a half. [1] With this in mind, the country is going to face huge challenges in terms of improving its infrastructure and resource management.   Payment, biometric identification, the traceability of goods and people, as well as problems associated with waste processing and recycling, all represent opportunities for FAMOCO to support the transition.   As Lionel Baraban, Managing Director of FAMOCO, explains, “ The authorities are looking for the most secure, flexible and inexpensive products to respond to the major issues India is facing. Our solutions offer a response to some of these issues, in areas such as payment, urban mobility and biometric identification, thanks to our cooperation with IDEMIA. India is a strategic market for FAMOCO: it was in New Delhi, in January 2016, that we chose to establish our first office abroad, while other high-tech companies usually look to the United States. That decision marked our commitment to contribute to India’s economic and social development as a French technological and business partner .”   Apart from the business aspects, FAMOCO is developing a truly long-term approach to the country, by supporting a more virtuous and efficient economy. The company counts 10% of Indian nationals in its workforce globally. In addition to their technical skills, they also bring their cultural knowledge of the country to the business.   About FAMOCO:      FAMOCO is a French company that designs secure professional devices to support businesses in their digital transformation in five sectors: payment, mobile working, logistic, identification and urban mobility. Created in 2010 by two Frenchmen, Lionel Baraban and Nicolas Berbigier, FAMOCO has already sold more than 180,000 devices to 450 customers in 30 different countries. The company has 80 employees in four offices: Paris, Brussels, New Delhi and Singapore. It generates 80% of its sales abroad with a prestigious client list that includes Orange, Alipay, Atalian, Gemalto and others.   For further information visit : http://www.famoco.com   [1] World Urbanization Prospects, UN, 2014, https://esa.un.org/unpd/wup/publications/files/wup2014-highlights.pdf

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.
