Talent Awards 2021

A unique ceremony to reward the teams behind the best scaling stories.

Every year, we’re closing the FDDAY with this unique ceremony to highlight French Tech’s most beautiful stories. Last year, 7 wonderful teams were rewarded for their unique impact. For the 4th edition, they’re putting their prices back into play this year. 🏆

Here are the 8 categories of this year:

👉 Global: A success story about international reach and/or expansion.
👉 Diversity: A team who made diversity an essential part of their corporate culture and endeavors to create a more inclusive tech world.
👉 For France: A team who are a flagbearer of the French brand and ecosystem, locally and/or internationally.
👉 For Democracy: A team who promote democracy or social change through their action.
👉 Governance: A team who have successfully designed an inclusive decision making process and a flat organization.
👉 Branding: A team who have translated the vision and culture of the company into a strong brand.
👉 Community: A team who successfully engage their costumers and create a sense of belonging.
👉 Future of work: A team who have embraced the Future of Work, for example by excelling as a distributed / remote team.

To apply, you need to respect the following criteria:

  • Be a French startup or scale-up;
  • Be independant (no exit);
  • Have more than 25 permanent positions in the team;
  • And have an ARR > 5M€ (and >25 B2B users or 50k B2C users).

We had to put some criteria to mesure the maturity of the scaling story. 

"All this companies are inspiring. They're showing us the way to reveal new talents and build, we think, a better world."

You’ll enjoy a great press visibility, with our partner from the beginning, Les Échos Group.
For example, you can find the wonderful story of Bodyguard, rewarded for their fight against cyber-harassent.

But we also make sure to have you visible in all the ecosystem.
