La French Tech is France’s start-up movement, powered by its ecosystem and bolstered by its government. They bring together these two radically different worlds bound by a single mission: make France a great home for global mission-driven tech champions but not at the price of inclusion, gender equality and the planet. 

At the grassroots level, La French Tech is brought alive by its 26 unicorns, 20,000 start-ups and its growing network of 121 entrepreneurial communities around the globe. They strive to promote a culture of giving back and openness, while propelling the French start-up scene forward both locally and internationally.
