Who we are

France Digitale is the leading startup organization in Europe. Created in 2012, following the Pigeon movement, the association represents more than 1,500 French digital entrepreneurs and investors.

Our mission? Foster the growth of future European digital champions.


  • Hypergrowth can no longer be companies’ single purpose.
  • Silicon Valley is no longer the centre of the world and Europe can and must play as a team.
  • Our startups’ values and positive social and environmental impact are a key asset to attract talent from all over the world.


  • Create a favorable regulatory environment for our ecosystem (particularly among government stakeholders).
  • Enable our members to raise funds, recruit, train their C-Levels, meet with corporates, improve their impact, and network with their peers.

The board

The Board of France Digitale, elected by its members, is composed in equal measure of entrepreneurs (10 seats) and investors (10 seats). Balance and equal representation are key to our organization.

Each year, half of the Board is renewed at the General Meeting. The board meets quarterly.
