Clara Chappaz, Director of the French Tech Mission – French Tech 2030 is our brand new programme in partnership with BpiFrance and the General Secretariat for Investment.

What is French Tech 2030? It’s 125 winners, disruptive innovation start-ups working on strategic issues for our sovereignty. I’m thinking, of course, of the ecological transition: 50% of the winners, but also the healthcare and digital infrastructure sectors. All these companies will provide the solutions we need.

Jean-Noël Barrot, Minister Delegate for the Digital Transition and Telecommunications – The ambitions in terms of employment and value creation for the winning companies in the French Tech 2030 programme are quite simply to establish themselves as leaders in their markets, based on disruptive innovation. It’s a guarantee of sovereignty, a guarantee of prosperity for France.

Roland Lescure, Minister Delegate for Industry – The aim of French Tech 2030, of the 125 winners and of a good number of them who are industrialists, is to serve the strategic challenges of tomorrow’s industrial France.

Today, we have traditional industrial regions, beyond the Paris Region, that are attractive. We need industrial start-ups everywhere, new factories everywhere.

Bruno Bonnell, General Secretary for Investment in charge of the France 2030 Plan – The France 2030 Plan has different verticals and we can say that the 125 winners of French Tech 2030 represent all the verticals. We have 125 champions in France of excellence in both technology and industry.

Ene Leppik, co-founder and CEO of Agriodor – Agriodor was selected in the “Better living, investing in the agricultural revolution” category. Agriodor’s selection in the French Tech 2030 programme will help to accelerate the development of Agriodor both industrially and in terms of regulation and intellectual property.

Paul-François Fournier, Executive Director of BpiFrance – What we’re going to do is set up an ad hoc organisation with correspondents for each of the start-ups to find the best funding and support them in the France 2030 calls for projects. We also have an ecosystem of banks and investment funds. The best of public funding, the best of private funding.

Sophie Cahen, Co-founder and CEO of Ganymed Robotics – Bpifrance supports the winners of French Tech 2030 through a dual financial and extra-financial package that will enable Ganymed Robotics to accelerate its access to the market by industrialising its devices in France and conducting clinical trials in Europe.

French Tech 2030, a unique support programme

Launched in partnership with the General Secretariat for Investment and Bpifrance in April 2023, the aim of the French Tech 2030 programme is to support emerging players that respond to the major challenges facing society, in line with the strategic priorities of the France 2030 plan.

The selection committee, chaired by Bruno Bonnell (General Secretariat for Investment), chose the winners from among 844 applications received. The ability of companies to meet the challenges of industrial and technological sovereignty, and to develop new activities, was taken into account.

This promotion symbolises the major objectives of the French Tech ecosystem, not only in terms of technological and industrial sovereignty, but also in terms of accelerating the decarbonisation of our economies and achieving parity.
