Why join?

France Digitale

Europe’s leading startup network, with 1,800 startups and 100 investors.
Created as a result of the pro-entrepreneur “Pigeons” movement that took place in France in 2012.

One mission: create Digital Champions in Europe.

  1. By facilitating the development of our startups by making their voice heard by government.
  2. By connecting our entrepreneurs with investors and new talent.

We believe our ecosystem is made stronger by its ability to share its successes – as well as its failures.

We have developed tools, events, and services for:

  • Financing: raise funds by connecting with the best VCs (speed business meetings)
  • Recruitment: attract and recruit the best talent with our Talent program
  • CSR: improve your social and environmental impact with a free CSR assessment
  • Networking: 70+ high-level events for meeting the right people and reaching your goals (entrepreneurs, managers, investors)
  • Public affairs: join us and make your voice heard by the French government and Brussels (position papers, publication of studies, articles, manifestos, etc.)
  • Admin: get access to time-saving content (e.g., contract templates) and enjoy discounts on the most commonly used tools in the ecosystem

Our strike force:

Our 20 board members work hard to get your needs met, in particular by taking advantage of their exclusive ties with the public authorities and launching effective media campaigns.

3 of our 15 salaried employees are in charge of public affairs. Our official positions are defined by our entrepreneurs, who consult with each other often and regularly meet for task forces.

👊 Because unity is strength, we group our initiatives into thematic or business task forces to:

  1. Share best practices amongst C-levels
  2. Chart each sector
  3. Set up exclusive meetings between startups and investors or public policymakers
