French Tech Tour: A cornerstone to scale your start-up in the North American landscape

French Tech Tour is a program created by Business France and BPI France to launch both visionary and ready-to-scale startups. The 19 hand-picked companies have a clear objective: validate their roadmap in North America and get ready to launch on this market within the next 12 to 18 months.

Our 12th edition, running from October 9th until October 19th, counts 2 different tracks; one in the US welcoming twelve companies, one in Canada counting 7 participants. The North American landscape is usually more risk-tolerant when it comes to new technologies, providing a promising opportunity for start-ups to receive feedback from this competitive market.

How does it work?

 

1- Beforehand

After being selected to participate to the program, the start-up work with Business France on its positioning, target identification, and marketing strategy. This mandatory step helps the contestant to be prepared and efficient once in front of key stakeholders.

Each start-up also benefits from coaching, pitch training, workshops, personalized business meetings and suited networking.
