About us

France Digitale is the leading association of startups in Europe. Created in 2012 as a result of the pro-entrepreneur “Pigeons” movement, the association currently represents more than 1,800 digital entrepreneurs and investors in France.

Our mission? Allow for Digital Champions to emerge in Europe.


  • Because companies can no longer be solely driven by growth
  • Because Silicon Valley is no longer the center of the world and Europe can and must work together
  • Because the values of our startups and their positive social and environmental impact should attract talent from all over the world


  • By creating a regulatory context (in particular, with public policymakers) that is favorable to the ecosystem
  • By helping our members raise funds, recruit, train their C-levels, meet with investors, improve their impact, and network with their peers

Elected by our members, the board of France Digitale is composed of an equal number of entrepreneurs (10) and investors (10). We believe in equal representation!

Every year at our general meeting, half of the seats on the board are filled with different members. The board meets once per quarter.
