The French Tech programme has chosen 50 French Tech Ticket winners. The start-ups receive EUR 25,000 and a year of mentoring in Paris. Six of the 50 winners have been chosen to pitch their project to president Francois Hollande. The initiative was launched in May 2015 to attract international talent to a French start-up ecosystem. After its Paris start, the French Tech Ticket programme is due to be extended nationally, with four times more winners in 2017.
