Paris Region Entreprises launched the “Global Open Innovation Network”, with subsidiaries in the US (Boston, San Francisco) and in China (Shanghai, Beijing), in order to connect innovative international start-ups with large French corporations.
Paris Region Entreprises launched the Global Open Innovation Network in Paris, Boston, San Francisco, Shanghai, and Beijing to connect international start-ups with large French corporations.
The digital revolution has led to an accelerated pace of innovation. Indeed, 40% of Fortune 500 companies may not be able to survive within 10 years if they don’t innovate.
In this context, large French corporations are now looking to partner with start-ups to adapt their business models and integrate new technologies.
Whereas most large French corporations are already collaborating with French start-ups, it is more difficult for them to identify international start-ups for partnerships. The added value of the Global Open Innovation Network is to connect them with international start-ups looking to expand their businesses in the Paris Region.
The Global Open Innovation Network runs monthly TechMeetings where executives from large corporations can meet with start-ups. Every quarter, Innovation Workshops are organized with international experts to take a deep dive on strategic topics and offer networking opportunities among peers. Throughout the year, the Global Open Innovation Network also opens its network of international start-ups to its members and offers useful contacts
