From May the 21st to 24th 2018, the French Chamber of Commerce & Business France, with the support of Openers & Lupo Design, organise French Tech Days in Paris with special focus on fintechs and mobility/smart cities. French & Swedish startups, VCs & corporate companies will meet each other, discuss business opportunities, financing, partnerships, and Swedish startups will pitch in front of a jury composed of investors and potential clients. The winning startup will get its participation reimbursed.
We will also visit Parisian fintech & smart city hubs, the connection platform between corporates & startups and learn more about why France is taking the lead in specific mobility/smart city fields.
