Second edition of the French Tech Ticket (New York, June 22, 2016)


The minister of foreign affairs and international development supports the French Tech Ticket program, which will be accepting applications from June 22 to August 24.

This program fosters the spread of innovation and concrete applications for research in France. Technological innovation is an engine for growth and a key component of our country’s attractiveness to investors.

This year, 70 foreign start-ups will be honored (compared with 23 during the first edition). Prizewinners will be housed for one year, beginning in January 2017, in one of France’s 41 business incubators. They will receive a 45,000 euro prize to launch an innovative project in France; an accelerated, simplified process for obtaining a residence permit enabling them to live and work in the country; and a guidance and support program that includes master classes.
