French Tech Hub and Comité Richelieu just signed a partnership that aims at fostering innovation and international expansion of French startups and SMEs.
The Comité Richelieu is an association dedicated to the promotion of the French entrepreneurial ecosystem. Its main actions target innovative French companies with national and international ambitions. It organizes several events to connect the different members of its ecosystem with large corporations, universities and research labs, financing organizations, and more. Today, it has more 300 members, 40,000 partner companies, a large part of them already having export activities.
In this perspective, French Tech Hub and Comité Richelieu have many synergies. The partnership will increase cross-communication between the two entities, Comité Richelieu’s members will gain access to selected French Tech Hub services, and one joint event will be organized in Paris each year. It will also facilitate the identification of promising companies that are interested in setting up their business in the U.S.
“I am very happy to initiate this partnership because Comité Richelieu’s SMEs have a great potential in the USA. We are looking forward to working with them” – Marie Buhot Launay, General Manager U.S. Market Entry, French Tech Hub
