French Tech Days Stockholm and Copenhagen10th-13th September 2018


3 days of immersion in the Swedish and Danish Tech ecosystem 

A true cradle of technology, Sweden is at the origin of many start up that we can not do without. Sweden, in particular, is behind innovative start up we all know, such as Spotify, Skype, Crush Saga and SoundClound.
Adding to this a very strong digitization of the country since the beginning of mobile and computer, Sweden, and more precisely Stockholm is clearly positioned as a forerunner in the field of new technologies. Sweden, the most innovative country in the Union, is an European leader in the digital field, and one of the countries in the Union where the digitization of the economy is undoubtedly the most advanced. All the indicators are green, whether it is the availability of digital infrastructures (93% of households have a broad band, compared to 79% in France), of the digital part in the economy (6.4%, against 3.8% in France) or the degree of penetration of NICTs. Sweden is the only EU country to spend nearly 3.5% of its GDP on R & D.

From September the 10th to 12th, 2018, Business France & the French Chamber of Commerce in Sweden, with the support of Openers, organise French Tech Days in Stockholm . Swedish & French startups, VCs & corporate companies will meet each other, discuss business opportunities, financing, partnerships, and startups will also have the opportunity to pitch.

We will also visit specific hubs, the startup ecosystem Sup46.
