Paris, the new place to be for start-ups
The MSc International Business programme includes visits to French Tech organisations and events. What exactly is French Tech?
“French Tech refers to all individuals working in or for French start-ups, locally or abroad. Entrepreneurs of course, but also investors, engineers, designers, developers, major companies, associations, media, administrations, research institutes… all organisations committed to start-up growth and influence”.
France and especially Paris have turned into an unavoidable tech hub after investment and support from the French government. Also, funds are not only small and local anymore, as overseas investments are gradually flowing in. Private initiatives are also flourishing, among which Station F, “world’s biggest start-up campus”, founded by Xavier Niel, a successful French telecom businessman. This superhub is all at the same time a meeting place for French and international start-ups, a centralized location for public services aimed at start-ups, an interface between start-ups and scientific research.
Station F and other initiatives in favor of entrepreneurship are an encouragement for a whole new generation of entrepreneurs, all of them working towards a same goal for their start-up, becoming a unicorn. Few French start-ups have made it so far; Vente Privée, Criteo and BlaBlaCar, however the French tech start-up ecosystem may soon provide new success stories of start-ups crossing the one million Dollar value.
MSc International Business students will benefit from this inspiring start-up atmosphere, a one-of-a-kind addition to the curriculum.
