Why France?

French Flag

GENEROUS
INCENTIVES

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.

STARTUP
& SME

In France, SMEs accounted for 86% of R&D tax relief recipients in 2017. Funds like the Bourse French Tech subsidises up to 70% of eligible startup expenses, and the €400M French Tech Seed co-invests alongside angels.

RICH
TALENT POOL

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).

BUSTLING
ECOSYSTEM

The government has actively ploughed into growing the French

start-up ecosystem, contributing to the creation of innovative companies with strong growth potential. Today, it's home to more than 18,000 start-ups, over 370,000 employees,

240 incubators, and

50 accelerators.
