We are at the forefront of the future and accompany this new industrial world being built before our eyes. This place of choice gives us a fundamental role. A role of agitator and facilitator that brings together all players in the digital economy & sustainable development (and more) and makes them work collectively to bring their visions, prototypes, projects, technologies and services beyond everyone’s expectations. To achieve this, we offer our services in support of innovation, acceleration, digital transformation and ecological transition.

Business Coaching & Acceleration
Fundraising, design coaching, internationalisation coaching, our members learn how to pitch to their audiences around the world, how to optimise their offer to a foreign market and make a smooth set up abroad, where to find the right funding and how to get a label of recognition in French ecosystem (e.g. Pass French Tech, EIP) to be able to gain more trust and open more doors on their way up.
Digital Transformation & Open Innovation
We are experienced in supporting open innovation programs and experimentation by selecting and accompanying the development of functional prototypes by startups to solve problems previously defined by sponsors.
Strategic Studies and Survey
One of our missions is to provide our members with competitive intelligence to identify and understand tomorrow’s innovations through market and technology watch, prospective analysis, publications, studies and thematic monitoring papers through various tools.
We also (co)organise each year more than 100 events. These occasions are inspiring opportunities for our members and partners.
Futur.e.s in Paris festival
Organized from 2008 to 2019, it was Europe’s largest free digital Festival showcasing the latest French and international digital innovations to both professionals and the general audience. Futur.e.s in Paris has built a cycle of conferences, new collaborative formats and unusual artistic experiments. During 2 days, start-ups and SMEs could exhibit their innovative products and services, experts debate and interact with the public, which reached the number of 10 000.
The annual How I Met My Startup meeting
Every year, during the How I Met My Startup event, startups from Paris and its region welcome in their premises students and all those curious to know more about the digital world. During one day, they share all about their universe, their jobs and their technologies.
