Applications are now open for foreign entrepreneurs who wish to launch or develop their ambitious entrepreneurial project in Paris. As part of the French tech initiative, ‘Paris French Tech Ticket’ is a programme designed for non-French entrepreneurs from all around the world to set up a technology-related (digital, cleantech, medtech, biotech etc.) startup in France.
All the foreign entrepreneurs are eligible, even if they are already based in France – finishing their studies, for instance. Teams of up to three founders are eligible, and can include up to one French member. Startups must be in the creation or growth phase. This programme, which will be held in English, includes a stipend of 12,500 euros per founding member over six months (renewable at the end of the programme), a fast-track procedure to obtain a French residence permit, free work space in a partner incubator in the heart of Paris, a mentoring programme and help to relocate to the French capital.
Only the first 500 eligible applications will be taken into account. The applications will close on September 15, 2015.
