A tailored acceleration programme designed to catapult
Singapore-based companies to France.
We help you develop a targeted market-access strategy, and connect you to the right potential customers, suppliers, and partners, leveraging Hello Tomorrow’s mentorship network,
in-house consulting team, and business events.
France offers one of the most generous R&D tax incentives among OECD and partner economies, making it that much easier launching deep-tech startups or investing in R&D. It also offers a special French Tech Visa - a simplified, fast-track scheme for non-EU startup employees, founders, and investors to obtain a residence permit for France.
Nearly half of all adults in France have a tertiary degree, and the proportion of graduates in natural sciences, mathematics, and statistics is one of the highest among OECD countries. France also ranks 7th in the world for hourly labour productivity, ahead of Germany (8th) and the UK (18th).
