The French Tech Capitals and Communities network teams

The French Tech Capitals and Communities, private bodies approved every 3 years by Mission French Tech, are the primary representatives of French Tech to start-ups in France and around the world.

This unique network brings together 6,000 start-ups and 1,400 volunteers in 52 countries to bring French Tech to life at a local level around the world.

Made up of teams for the French Tech Capitals and volunteer French or Francophile entrepreneurs for the French Tech Communities, their members occupy a variety of positions ranging from start-up relations, venture capital coordinator, events and communications to programme implementation. They all share a common desire to help federate the French Tech ecosystem in their geographical area.
