French tech ticket, the french program for international startups. The French Tech Ticket is a one-year program by the French government to attract gifted and ambitious individuals from all around the world and help them set up and develop their start up in France. More than just a start up visa, this 12-month program offers end-to-end support on the journey from early stage startup to successful business – from financial support and training to first customer acquisition.
