Why join?

France Digitale

First network of startups in Europe, with 1400 startups and 100 investors. Created in France following the 2012 Pigeon movement.

Our mission

Our objective is to enable the emergence of future European digital champions:

  • By creating a regulatory context favourable to the ecosystem (especially for public players)
  • By enabling our members to raise funds, recruit, train their C-Levels, meet with corporations, improve their impact, network with their peers, etc.

Our strike force

With our 20 board members, we are on the right track for you, thanks to a good listening ear for the public authorities and a proven media strike force.

3 of the 15 employees of the association are in charge of public affairs. Our official positions are determined by the members, gathered in thematic task forces or consulted on an ongoing basis.

Our assets for member companies

France Digitale is fortunate to bring together +1500 entrepreneurs and investors.

We provide our member companies with a series of events, online tools and services for:

  • Financing: raising funds by having easier access to VCs (speed business meetings)

  • CSR: improve your social and environmental impact with a free CSR report card
  • Networking: cultivate your network (French and European public authorities, corporate partners…) thanks to more than 200 events each year which you can attend free of charge and a private directory.
  • Public affairs: playing a collective role to make ourselves heard by the Government and Brussels (position paper, publication of studies, forums, manifestos, etc.)
  • Administrative simplification: access to practical tools to simplify your life (model contracts, etc.) and discounts on other members’ services.
