2023-2025 Labellisation of French Tech Capitals and Communities

In early February 2023, Mission French Tech announced the labeling of 16 Capitals (including 3 new ones) and 32 Communities (including 2 new ones) in France and 67 Communities internationally (including 9 new ones) for the period from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2025. This unique network brings together 1,400 volunteers and 6,000 start-ups who bring French Tech to life locally all over the world.

What are French Tech Capitals and Communities?

Mission French Tech supports and leads a network, consolidated in 2023, of 115 structures labeled French Tech, in France and abroad.

French Tech Capitals and Communities are real gateways for French start-ups to the French Tech ecosystem. Present throughout France and in 52 countries around the world, they federate the innovation players in their territory (start-ups, investment funds, support structures, public services, financiers, major groups, research centers…) and mobilize them on joint initiatives, in line with the challenges of the Mission French Tech and according to the local priorities of their ecosystem.
