La French Tech Singapore
La French Tech Singapore is a non-profit organisation for French entrepreneurs and employees working in the tech industry in Singapore. It encompasses all start-ups, from embryonic firms to growing start-ups with global ambitions. Digital technology is a major catalyst for development, and French Tech represents digital players including start-ups in medtech, biotech and cleantech.
French Tech Singapore is one of the 6 official French Tech communities in ASEAN (there are 14 communities in Asia). It is composed of more than 2600 members with daily interactions on 14 or more thematic Whatsapp groups (Cyber & Security, FinTech, Retail Tech etc). With an exception of the Covid-19 period, the community meets on a regular basis with at least one participation in a key Tech event (Switch Fintech Festival in 2019), and organizes French Tech Connect / French Tech Talk events once a month.
Well-integrated into the local ecosystem, it has links with government agencies involved in innovation, startup development and/or digital transformation including :
EDB (Economic Development Board), an agency responsible for promoting Singapore’s attractiveness
SGInnovate, an incubator and investment fund dedicated to Deep Tech
Enterprise Singapore (ESG)
ACE (Action Community for Entrepreneurship)
IMDA (Info-communications Media Development Authority), a communications and media regulatory authority.
