French Tech Hub opens in London

Tuesday 3 February 2015 | 15:38 CET | News
The French government plans to create more French Tech Hubs in large innovating cities around the world, uniting state representatives and expat entrepreneurs to help French startups find overseas markets or investors. After launching hubs in San Francisco and Boston last year, it has opened one in London. At an event hosting some 1,000 people, many from the first nine French Tech clusters, digital affairs secretary Axelle Lemaire mentioned Tel Aviv, Singapore and Sao Paolo as potential locations for official French Tech Hubs, which will have to meet specific requirements to obtain the label.
