CREATIVE FRANCE What if we were to cast aside current preconceptions of France ? INDIA   Taking care of business In India, the ‘Créative France’ campaign took off during French President François Hollande’s visit during the India-France Business Summit and the ensuing CEO Forum. The forum meets to discuss various business-related matters, such as immediate policy issues to encourage greater trade and investment, and acts as a way for business leaders to highlight their needs, interests and desired policy reforms for government consideration and action. It was here that ‘Créative France’ was formally launched in the country.     UNITED STATES   What happens in Vegas… “La French Tech” was a major success at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, with 190 French startups taking part. As French Minister for the Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs Emmanuel Macron points out, France created 1,500 start ups in 2015 alone, and boasts five so-called ‘unicorns’, rare startups valued at more than US$1 billion. Thirty percent of companies exhibiting at the startup venue Eureka Park at the CES this year were French, making France the third leading representative in this section of the show.     SWITZERLAND   Creativity for industry The ‘Créative France’ campaign attended the World Economic Forum 2016 Annual Meeting last month in Davos. Centered around the theme “Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution”, the WEF opened its doors to 2,500 participants, including entrepreneurs, heads of state and government, NGOs and academic representatives. Led by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, France turned the spotlight onto nine startups and entrepreneurs: Famoco, Oledcomm, Devialet, Linkfluence, Digitsol / Zhor Tech, 10 Vins, Holi, Djit and Plume Labs. For Créative France, Davos was a celebration of France’s vibrant creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.   Powered by Business France 2015 , UBIFRANCE and INVEST IN FRANCE AGENCY join forces to create BUSINESS FRANCE       Official website: http://creative.businessfrance.fr/
