What is Impact? What happened to ubi i/o?

Impact is the new name for ubi i/o, the acceleration program launched by Business France and Bpifrance in 2014 in San Francisco.

Our vision has always been to build a global platform for French startups that have the ambition to become global. From Day 1, we’ve chosen a small-scale approach, working with a limited number of companies and growing step by step. We started in San Francisco, then we added a campus in New York. After three successful editions in the U.S., our program is now expanding its footprint in China, and will add other campuses beyond 2017.

Our new brand shows our ambition: have a strong impact on French startups’ international expansion.
