WHO WE ARE
“La French Tech” is the French startup scene in France.
It’s a unique movement bringing together startups, investors, policymakers and community builders.
Created in 2013 by French President Emmanuel Macron, this giant ecosystem is today rich of 24 unicorns, more than 21 000 startups, 400 accelerators, more than 3 000 investors and 3 500 VC funds.
La French Tech’s national team, known as the French Tech Mission, sits administratively inside French government, and physically at the world’s biggest startup campus, Station F.
As of today, 45 official “La French Tech” communities are active in France but the concept of “La French Tech” goes beyond the French borders: there are also 63 communities abroad and Istanbul is one of them!
Year of creation
La Fench Tech Istanbul Community stands as a bridge between French & Turkish start-up & scaleup ecosystems, and entrepreneurial innovation in general.
French Tech Istanbul brings together entrepreneurs and managers of technological and multi-sector companies, investors, university presidents and merges into a dense network of incubators, accelerators, and experts in the local ecosystem.
We enable them to meet, exchange best practices, promote synergies and cross-innovation in order to build the Tech4Good of tomorrow together, on both sides of the Bosphorus.
