In 2013, the French government launched “La French Tech“, an open brand of the French startup scene and an initiative to support & promote the French startup ecosystem on an international level. In April 2019, 13 French Tech Capital Cities and 38 French Tech Communities in France, as well as 48 French Tech Communities abroad –including one in Singapore– have been officially labelled. Today, La French Tech counts over 10,000 startups, a number increasing by 30% every year.
Created a few years ago by a handful of French entrepreneurs, the French Tech Singapore (FTS) is today one of the most vibrant French Tech communities you can find in Asia with a hundred active French entrepreneurs. It is also a key contributor of the tech ecosystem in Southeast Asia with regular events opened to all. The French Tech Singapore can rely on the growing cooperation between France and Singapore innovation ecosystems to boost their presence in Singapore because of numerous agreements signed during the joint Innovation Year 2018.
