As part of the French Tech initiative, France is launching the Paris French Tech Ticket to attract foreign entrepreneurs wishing to create or develop their start-up in Paris.
With more than 40 incubators, 80 co-working spaces, 20 fablabs, more than 1,500 new startups every year and more success stories every day, Paris has shown remarkable vitality, acknowledged by international rankings.
The vitality of an innovation ecosystem depends on the diversity of its members: the French Tech Ticket program aims to attract global entrepreneurs with an ambitious project, already created or still in its development stages.
The Paris French Tech Ticket is the first pilot session, with a view to extend the project to other French Tech Cities in 2016.
This program, which includes a € 12,500 6-month stipend for each team member, free lodging and numerous subsidies, is designed for foreign entrepreneurs from all over the world. There can be between 1 and 3 founders, with a maximum of one French national per team.
