Earlier this year, the French government and the City of Paris launched the “Paris French Tech Ticket” initiative. It is aimed at non-French entrepreneurs who have an idea for creating or expanding a startup.
During the call for proposals, which ended on 15 September 2015, 722 startup projects were submitted, for a total of 1,372 applicants and 5,677 expressions of interest from over 90 countries.
Paris is a world leader in the innovation economy: “Number one city in the world for innovation and intellectual capital”, “the city with the most dynamic economy in the euro area”, and “third most appealing city for foreign investment”. In addition, the City of Light is the top European destination
for startups. “Paris appeals to men and women who drive innovation and invent the solutions of tomorrow. We are thrilled with the enthusiastic response to Paris French Tech Ticket among international entrepreneurs.” said Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris.
The fifty winners of the first edition of Paris French Tech Ticket will be announced in December. Starting in January 2016, they will be welcomed into a dozen support structures and partner incubators.
